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.

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.
