Many meetings and fresh tar – Leisure ride to Elm Farm

3 guest riders raised our number to eleven, but we couldn’t find a football so had to go cycling instead. Avoiding the roadworks we sped up the Greenway and thence past the Tennis Club to Besore and then Twelveheads, where the road is now newly resurfaced- Hoorah! Taking the Chacewater road and up at Sunrise […]

Longish, fastish, Leisurely ride to Crantock with Ice Cream Reward

Dave B, Niq, John G, John F, Jude, Paul and Ros, Newest Member Mark Rugman plus two Guest Riders Rochelle and Graham set off across the cobbles and out through Idless. A problem with Mark’s rear wheel delayed us for a while. We were all astonished that nobody had a cassette removal tool with them, […]

Three Go to Heligan – 14/4/19

Three Go to Heligan -As Opposed to Five Yours truly, a very reluctant ride leader arrived at Wetherspoons in a howling gale and drizzle in the hope that there would be a distinct lack of support. Jane duly arrived and pointed out that Malcolm was hiding in the Lemon Quay marquee and as per usual […]

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 […]

Leisure Ride to Cubert 09.04.17

Following a brief photoshoot on the Piazza, courtesy of club member Dave Rickett, (wife Melinda was with the Intermediate group) a group of 9 began a leisurely (but purposeful!) ride through Truro, up Kenwyn and on to Idless to be met once again by our intrepid photographer Dave who positioned himself along the route for […]

Leisure ride to Stithians Lake. 19.2.2017

  This took the form of an expedition to verify the myth that it’s always raining at Four Lanes. If the famous yomp across the Falklands by the Marines in 1982 had been done on bicycles, it would have felt like our so-called leisure ride. Already cloudy and damp as we left Truro by the […]
