Intermediate Ride to Crantock in the Rain 21.8.2016

  Originally there were six of us destined for the Intermediate Ride to Crantock, however Chris F was operating a bring-and-buy sale and had stock left over which had to be returned to base. Chris informed us that he would endeavour to catch us by the time we reached Fraddon. The route took us up […]

Intermediate-ish ride to Bolingey 14.08.2016
