Not quite a Poldhu day, with the wind blowing off the sea, but as near as damn it. Perranuthnoe seemed a good alternative, as it can usually accommodate the OGIL, though we need to be there before 11 when the breakfast menu finishes. Just Phil1, myself and new rider, Pete, at Union Corner but a goodly collection spilling out into the junction at the other place, discussing Mike2’s new Gore-tex jacket. My social influencing wasn’t working. Kath’s absence was noted; […]

It was a bit lonely standing at Union Corner. I’m not often first there and today it looked like I would be the only one. But Phil1 arrived shortly before the appointed time, as did the rain. This was more than the two raindrops suggested by Mystic Meg. Now, it appears that since I began my new career as Social Influencer, promoting items available from Evans Cycles, the profitability of said Company appears to have taken a nose-dive and it […]
A wintery weather forecast is enough to sort the men from the boys and girls. In my Night Vision jacket, also available in blue, I was, at times, too hot. The traffic was queuing back as far as the Church Field so I only just managed to get to Union Corner by 8.50am. Adrian and Phil1 were already there and as soon as Ian arrived we were glad to get moving. A good manly turn out at the other place […]
We’re talking ‘Marginal gains’ here, but its the difference that makes a difference. Last week Robin attended the Boardman Performance Centre to explore their Aerodynamics services; wind tunnel to you and me. The Chris Boardman Performance Centre (for old codgers?) Gill’s ears don’t exactly prick up when I mention aerodynamic drag – but at least she doesn’t roll her eyes. I tell her that I’m thinking of going to the Chris Boardman wind tunnel in Evesham to be aero tested by […]

Falmouth Wheelers film night Thursday 15th November at Wood Lane Social Club.
A bright and sunny day beckoned as I drove to Lanivet to meet five other regular FW pathfinders. How the weather has changed though for the shorts we’ve been wearing since the Spring disappeared and were replaced by several layers to keep out the cold wind. We cycled just 6.5 miles to meet the others at the start from Luxulyan but, after several steep and long hills, I could see we would be needing our climbing legs! Soon after we […]
Following a session at the Velodrome on Thursday Robin has confirmed that he will be attempting to set a new Veteran Time Trial Association “Masters” Hour record on Tuesday 20 November. I am sure that club members will want to be there to witness his attempt, the culmination of many, many, months of hard work and training. Phil Conroy is organising a Mini Bus for those who do not wish to drive to Newport but if you are intending to […]
