Ride Report 31.08.2014 To Stithians Golden Lion

The weathermen, eager for image rehabilitation are falling over each other in excited competition to predict ever more clement Indian Summers which extend, depending on their optimism, largesse or accuracy for days, weeks or even unto next June. It is almost as if they actually create the highs and lows themselves and give them as […]

Ride Report. 24 August, 2014 Twelve go to Goss Moor Cafe, via three different routes.

Seven gathered by the DrummerBoy and set off on this ….’chilly for August’…Sunday morning. First brief stop Tresillian to add 3 more riders to our peloton.

Ride to Zelah 17th August

Zelah – 17th August On a rather damp and blustery morning there were only 5 riders who left Lemon Quay to ride up Moresk Road to the traffic lights at Tregolls Road and down into Tresillian where a few items of wet clothing were discarded. We rode along through the Ladock Valley without any problems […]

Eight riders left the Drummer Boy at the usual time of approximately 10.10 and rode up Mitchell Hill to take a backwards route to Goonhavern. Peter had to leave us here as he had to be back home early. The rest of us rode on down into Tresillian and along the Ladock Valley to Fraddon […]

27th April – Blue Anchor, Fraddon

Blue sky nervously showed a presence on a day forecast to be somewhat “iffy”. So, not wishing to ‘look a gift horse in the mouth’ half a dozen members left the Drummer Boy for the culinary delights of Fraddon. Along the Ladock Valley to the village of that name and then left to skirt Ladock […]

Ride Report Stithians 11.5.2014

Sunday 11th May 2014 Ride Report Destination: The Golden Lion, Stithians The weather forecasters, having been pilloried in the past for predicting clement airs only to see the landscape washed into the sea in a gale, are understandably leery of suggesting good things to come. So it was that the web site pictograms showed nothing […]

Easter Ride report Godrevy (sort of)

20.4.14, Easter Sunday ride, National Trust Cafe at Godrevy (sort of)… Eleven riders materialised at Lemon Quay for the scheduled Easter Ride to Godrevy. After some discussion which included the likelihood of queueing for a long time at Godrevy, the general unavailability of tables inside, and the rain faithfully promised by the BBC, not the […]

Club Ride 16/3/2014 – Heligan Gardens

A good turn out, I think, for me of the first stormless Sundays of the New Year. Doesn’t it feel better when the weather is more clement? Enough wittering… Eight of us left Truro on a familiar easterly route (leaving John Gilbert, Pete Hargreaves and Hugh Bryson to potter off in another direction), taking the […]

Ride Report for 9th March to Zelah

There were 8 riders waiting for the ride leader at Lemon Quay, and the sun was shining. We all set off round Trafalgar Roundabout and up Tregolls road, into Tresillian and along the Ladock Valley. A forced stop at Brighton Cross caused by a rider dropping her computer just before that. Once reinstalled we toured […]
