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 […]

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.

Snow Patrol: ride report 18/3/18

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 […]
