Perranuthnoe 3rd December 2017

Oh my prayers were answered! As I walked out of spoons with Martin I saw Chris F talking to a group of the faster riders (Chris R, Greg, Shaun and James). I was hoping to have a nice steady ride up to Four Lanes, if only there was a way to slow them down! Do […]

Club Ride to the Waymarker Brill 22nd October 2017

Phil and I had a great cycle into Truro, coming from different directions but ending up at Lemon Quay, the sun rose as the strong winds pushed us into the city, so we awarded ourselves with a cup of coffee from Wetherspoons and waited for the rest of our fellow cyclists to arrive. It was […]

Club Ride – Godrevy – Sunday 7th May 2017

What a nice sunny day, compared with the terrible weather we all experienced the day before. I was hoping the blue skies would attract a few cyclists and was relieved to see seven cyclists gathering on Lemon Quay (Chris F, Dom, Martin, Shaun, Gareth, Malcolm and James, a new recruit). After the signing in process […]

23rd Oct – Club Ride to the Lost Gardens

Six riders left Lemon Quay on the windy Sunday morning (Chris F, John B, Barney, Chris R, Josh and myself). The aim of the ride was to find the Lost Gardens of Heligan. It was a fast start out of Truro and it did not take long to discover Chris F was not feeling his […]

Club Ride – Sithney – 13th March 2016

It was going to be a great day for cycling today, the air was fresh, the skies were blue, the temperature was reasonable and the winds were Easterly. I was hoping this would tempt a few cyclists to come along on the Club Ride and that was just what it did as six of us […]

Club Ride – Mawgan Porth – 22 Nov 15

Only three cyclists (Chris R, Chris F and myself) cycled up Kenwyn Hill heading to Allet and Ventongimps. The weather forecast was iffy that day so only a few had the courage to tackle the elements. The roads were fine until we crossed the A30, for as we entered the country lanes, the roads became […]

Club Ride Century to Plymouth – 2nd August 2015

Last weekend was the first Club Ride Century where a 100 mile route was being attempted. I was unsure how popular this ride would be. I received four apologies which was encouraging as they couldn’t come due to other commitments. I was delighted to discover six cyclists were keen to begin the ride…we welcomed Rachael […]

Club Ride – Poldhu Cove – 19th April 2015

Six cyclists came over the brow of the hill towards Stithians Crossroads (Julian, Gareth, Chris R, Fionn, Josh and Chris F). It was nice to see Josh and Fionn for a second time returning to attempt another club ride. After discussions on the current trend to purchase black bikes with their logos blacked out, we […]

Club Ride – Plymouth – 1st March 2015

Five cyclists met outside Wetherspoons (Chris F,  Chris R, Julian, Rich and myself) for a ride to Plymouth. It was agreed from the offset we needed to take the shortest route possible as rain was forecast for 2pm so we needed to cover as much distance before the rain began. The ride towards Bodinnick Ferry […]

Club Ride – Lake Argal – Sun 8 Feb 2015

What a great day for a ride to Lake Argal. The temperature may have been cold but the skies were blue and you could feel the cold oxygen going through your lungs. Six cyclists gathered at the 108 coffee shop (John, Chris F, Dom, Pete, Fionn and myself). Pete, who was new to the club, […]
