Two groups ride as one
Intermediate riders were thin on the ground and Dave was slow to
get started so they were engulfed amoeboid-like by the easy riders.
Avoiding the likely power-struggle between the Two Ride Leaders, it
was decided for Dave to lead from the front and Jude from the rear.
(How does that saying go again?).
Up Pydar street to Idless, then left at Rod’s turning and right onto
the road out towards Chyverton Castle with much discussion on
pronunciation. Jude helpfully guided the group on a low altitude
route into Goonhavern, where we turned right twice towards Zelah
and then through Fiddler’s Green. Straight on to cross the main road
towards Cubert, but employing Niq’s gambit to avoid the hill we
arrived en masse at Crantock for a well deserved lunch at The Cosy
Refuelled, we headed for Cubert, turning left to St Newlyn East and
then the gentle undulations of the Halt Road to Mitchell. A familiar
climb towards the Carland Cross plateau and the old road down to
Truthan soon bought us back to retrace our outward journey through
riders were : Carl Jackaman, Dave Bennett, Damian Coia, Jonathan
Angilley, Niq Carter-Rowe, David Folland, Jude Lawrence, Paul
Delderfield, John Flowers, Debbie Barnett, New Rider: SueHall.
