Snow Patrol: ride report 18/3/18

This was a make-it-up-as-you-go ride. The plan was to go to Heligan, but Heligan is the palace of the Snow Queen, and she was likely to emerge today, so we headed in the opposite direction; five solos and a tandem, under a clear sky. Cold as charity, though. Your reporter’s nose, tiddley-pom, froze while we […]

Leisure Ride to Cubert 24 09 17

A somewhat uninspiring weather forecast meant a dearth of riders for the Intermediate ride to St Mawes and a lack of the usual suspects for the leisure ride. The weather proved better than expected and five riders , Niq C-R, Penny Holt, Chris Fearnley, Dave Bennett and Hugh Bryson (leader) left the Piazza to head […]

Ride Report Callestick Cider Farm 30 July 2017

We left the Piazza at approximately 10.10 and proceeded along Lemon St, Charles St and thus up Station Rd (Hill) and thence along Treyew Rd through 3milestone towards Chacewater where we turned off at ‘Dangerous Crossing’ and into Key Down Rd, a sharp rainstorm forcing us to don our rain jackets by the Weak Bridge […]

Ride to St Agnes 9th July 2017

John rolled into the Piazza, panting slightly and claiming he’d beaten Jude on her new electric bike. Jude, as she cruised majestically into view, a vision of unflustered dignity on a machine so defiantly red it will undoubtedly launch a new range of cosmetics, seemed to imply that he’d started half-an-hour ahead of her. I […]

Intermediate Ride Bissoe 18.12.16

  (Niq’s Birthday Ride) As unusually the target of this intermediate ride was maybe only 4 or 5 miles away by a direct route, a bit of head scratching was required to stretch the ride out… After gratefully partaking of home made mince pies, supplied by the easy ride leader, the ride set off on […]

Intermediate Ride Tehidy Woods 4 December 2016

The original destination for this ride had been Vogue, however this was changed when it was discovered that the intended hostelry only provided the complete “Sunday Lunch” package on a Sunday, and not the obligatory bits and bobs that the club riders had come to rely on, and a polite veil will be drawn over […]

Intermediate Ride Cubert 27 November 2016

  The stated destination of this ride was Cubert, however this was a slight misnomer, as the actual lunch stop was the “Smugglers Den Inn”, which although it bills itself as being at that locale, is only really a “stones throw” from Cubert if you regard “launched with a small ballistia” to be in the […]

Intermediate Ride Mithian 20 November 2016

The ride for the day was planned as a kind of antidote to the previous weeks ride, which had been relatively flat and somewhat frenetic. Hence the route taken was to be along the more leisurely lanes of Kenwyn Road, Idless valley and so on… It was part way along the valley that the folly […]

Intermediate Ride Crantock 13 November 2016 Or The Intermediate goes Clubbing

  The weather was fair, and due to the paucity of riders who had selected the intermediate route, over the easy route, the ride was able to set off at a good pace, without too much discussion, or pauses whilst riders caught up… The route was straight up Tregolls Road, down into Tresillian, bear left […]

Not so wet after all! (Intermediate ride to Helston – 6 November 2016)

BBC forecast at 8am showed ‘heavy rain’ from 10 to at least lunchtime. Nobody’s going to show up this morning, are they? But it’s sunny periods at the moment, and dry, so at 9:45 off I go to Lemon Quay suitably dressed in thick winter jacket and waterproof socks – just in case someone else […]
