Crantock Intermediate Ride, 2nd Oct

The intermediate ride set off in a slight state of disorganisation, this unusually was caused by actually sticking to the planned ride… The easy ride had instead elected to go to the delightful “Wendy’s” in St Agnes, and under normal circumstances the intermediate ride would simply have re-routed itself to there. However due to the […]

Trerice Ride 25th September 2016

ride rep 25 Sep – janerickard@googlemail.com – Gmail The intermediate ride set out in the direction of Trerice with the perhaps uninspired aim of “not riding up the Ladock Valley” for a change, although this mandate did not extend to “not passing through the Waitrose car park”, aka the P & R, this as it […]

Intermediate ride to Lost Gardens of Heligan 18 September 2016

  The intermediate ride although low in numbers set out in good weather and spirits, not the least because the Garmin had behaved itself and dutifully regurgitated the route it had been fed the night before, for the riders to follow, taking one of the few, more or less sensible, routes out of Truro, up […]

Intermediate ride to Morgans, St Agnes 11 September 2016

  The intermediate ride set out in good weather with the intention of riding to Wendy’s Coffee Barn (AKA Morgans, the artist formerly known as Presingoll Barns), via a circuitous route involving the much maligned Waitrose Park and Ride, a short stretch of the Ladock Valley and a sharp right turn after the railway bridge […]

Intermediate ride to Victoria Inn, Roche, 28.8.2016

  The ride set out under cool cloudy skies, making a good pace up the Kenwyn Road, before making what might now be termed, the “usual” right turn down the Idless valley, right at the Llama farm T, through St Allen, right at that confusing little grassy triangle, all the way up to the A30, […]

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

  This ride set out to be a carefully planned intermediate route to the Bolingey Inn, with the aim of providing just enough distance and encompassing the requisite number of hills, so that the riders would feel that they had earned one of the famous Bolingey doorstops… As usual things did not go according to […]

Twelve go to Cardinham Woods. 12.08.2016

Perhaps it was the first day for a long while with no wind, no rain, and a decent 20 degrees that brought everyone out – it was certainly the first day in a long while that I’ve had eleven other riders on an outing. A few miles after leaving Truro I seemed to have re-learned how […]

Intermediate-ish ride to Tehidy Woods 31/07/2016

  Before it set out, the ride changed its mind, this was due to the easy ride which it had been scheduled to meet up with, moving its location to Tehidy Woods, which in turn was due to the unkind removal of the bridge over the railway at Greenbottom, which in turn meant that there […]

Intermediate-ish ride to Mithian, Miners Arms 10/7/2016

The ride set out from Lemon Quay in good spirits due to an outbreak of sunny-ish weather, well at least only a minority of dark threatening clouds at any rate. The route took the party up Moresk Road, before diving left into the possibly uncertain delights of the Idless valley, only uncertain because the road […]
