A Tight Squeeze
Jul 13, 2016, 9:36 pm

As I met up with the two Don’s at Union Corner today (Wed) for another mystery tour it decided to rain, so the boys had the idea to use the telephone box as a shelter. As the three of us squeezed together it was rather cosy and I thought I heard Tina Turner singing “Steamy Windows”, but maybe that was just my imagination. The rain soon passed so we set off towards Gweek, up Gweek Drive and then down through Trelowarren Estate. It was then on past Goonhilly and very soon I found myself flying down hill to the café at Poldhu. It was quite busy and windy there but the sun was shining so we sat outside and had very tasty bacon and sausage baps and watched the surfers. Mr G had a few twinges – I think he may have overdone things on the Huff & Puff last Sunday. There was some very serious talk between Mr G and Mr M about which route to take back home. Instead of the usual climb out of Poldhu, we followed the coastal path to Gunwallow, (we had to push the bikes a tad) through Halzephron and some quiet back roads to Helston eventually emerging at Culdrose. At the end of Rowe’s Lane we took a right to Wendron Stoves and I thought, “Oh Good, we’re going to miss out Carnkie hill”. However, Mr G had other ideas. We turned left to Porkellis and then it was the usual route home. Said farewell to Mr G at Union Corner then I cycled on to Pendennis Point to add a few extra miles. Mr M stopped off at the shops at Albany road so I carried on alone. No stopping for a naughty Magnum at the Point today (I’ll save that for another day). I had a great ride thanks to the Don’s and apart from the shower at the start, the weather was just right for cycling. I totted up a very acceptable 51.4 miles.
