February Fizz tickets are currently being sold...
Dec 8, 2012, 4:53 pm

Anyone wishing to purchase tickets for the February Fizz Fest on Saturday Feb. 2nd, please contact Donald on 01326 210285 or Caroline on 01326 375233 or buy them at the club's special Christmas meeting (party), 20th December at Woodlane Social Club.

Remember, Falmouth Sports Club members have been invited to buy tickets just as non-wheelers have been invited to do so for all our previous ‘dinner dances’. They are keen to party with us and the Falmouth Soul Sensation band as they enjoyed our Hog Roast in the summer and I dare say the chance of winning an iPad, Garmin or Kindle in the FREE RAFFLE for ticket holders may be an incentive too.

Make sure you buy your ticket before they all go!

Ed’s Mince Pie & Mulled Wine - 56km - 2nd December 2012
Dec 4, 2012, 11:43 am

The season of good cheer was evident at Carharrack as 19 FWs and 51 others turned up for the fifth edition of this annual roasted chestnut. The two grand old men of audax, Eddie and Peter were controlling while Louise and Scott, wearing Father Christmas hats, were busy brewing the magic potion for those hardy enough to brave and survive the next few hours on the road to “hellston” and back. It rained and it did not stop.

Our legs were warmed by the steady climb up to Vogue and over the hill and down into Redruth. After St Euny church we thought we were salmon as we fought our way up the river flowing down the road from Carnkie. Several times the eager leaders (no names of the guilty) had to be diverted back on course at junctions when they tried to lead the rest astray. Down through Beacon and on across the flatlands to Fraddam and Godolphin Cross the pace seemed to pick up a bit unnecessarily – “I thought this was supposed to be a social event!”.

At the control at Wendy’s farm on the Porthleven Road the kitchen was steaming with hot sausage rolls and hot drinks - and hot riders perched comfortably in front of the (1947) AGA. It was such a tremendous spread that we hoped we managed to leave a few morsels for those still to arrive. Many thanks Wendy!

Dropping into the valley at Sithney Green there was a solitary figure in summer attire standing by his upended bike. Richard I had punctured. There now followed a masterclass in speedy inner tube replacement by an increasingly large assembly of FWs. Unfortunately the new inner tube took a little while to extract from its location and when it was, it was found that its release was tightly controlled by red tape. Was this government surplus, circa 1984? Meanwhile we had blocked the lane completely and there was a lucky escape when the Aldis tandem came storming past in its run up to the long hill.

On past Truthall Hall the liquid muck in the lanes was liberally spread amongst the rest of us by those with no mudguards (no names of the guilty). Back up to Black Rock and along the spine to Four Lanes from where it was all downhill to a well deserved mince pie with clotted, and a glass of Ed’s magic mulled wine.            

A soggy ride home was alleviated by a pint at the Fox & Hounds at Comford and some very good homemade fish goujons, gratis and courtesy of the new landlord. A very good day out! Many thanks Eddie! Simon (see Simon's pictures in gallery. Thanks Ed.)

The inaugural Falmouth Wheelers’ 'February Fizz Fest' and Mega Raffle will be happening on Saturday 2nd February at the Membly Hall Hotel, Falmouth.

Yes folks, 'February Fizz Fest' is our annual dinner dance re-mixed. The 'smart clothes and posh frocks' evening starts at 7pm with a free glass of bubbly in the function room upon arrival.
There’ll be dancing to the highly acclaimed Falmouth Soul Sensation Band, entertaining mystery cabaret acts and a grand buffet. Each Fizz Fest ticket is numbered and automatically entered into a Free Mega Raffle.  First Mega prize is an iPad, (yes, you read correctly, an iPad) second Mega prize is a Garmin (yes, a Garmin) and third Mega prize is a Kindle (probably the best ‘3rd prize’ ever) plus there will be other excellent prizes.
There are only 200 Fizz Fest tickets available, they are only £23 each, and they go on sale this Thursday 29th November, at the club meeting. Word is Falmouth Sports Club members are eager for tickets so best buy yours soon as you can.
Note: This event will be supporting 'Penhaligon's Friends' - a local charity for bereaved children.


Sunday 18th 9 o.clock ride
Nov 22, 2012, 11:26 am

A frosty morning saw 18 riders set out for the Lizard via Budock and Gweek. At Garras Richard 1 thought there might be mud through Trelowarren so went the direct route with Adrian and Graham. The peleton enjoyed a traffic and mud free ride through the estate led by local guide Shane, he then took us via the quiet lanes to the Polpeor Cafe at the Lizard where a steady stream of Wheelers refuelled in the sunshine. Back to Culdrose with a detour to make sure that Poldue hill was still there. Half of the group headed home via Gweek while the rest of us made for Porkellis, Helston Trevor said that the Star Inn was on his way home so would join the thirsty ones. Richard 2, Dave and I peeled off to Underlane and home. An enjoyable ride of 51miles.  Jim


Guess who missed his dinner...

One or two Wheelers had commented recently that I had lost weight.  I can assure you that that this is not true, or at least not much; although after last Sunday's 'starvation' at Roskilly's - who knows?    Richard 1

Well he was that thin nobody could see him on the OGIL ride, but then there was some mud on the roads.  Edit.


Cold fingers & toes - Sun 18th Nov 10.00 er's
Nov 19, 2012, 6:26 pm

With a heavy frost & temperatures dipping to 2C twelve wheelers met at 10.00 for a leisurely ride to Stithians via Gweek top road. Joined by Steve L on a new Tricross disk and Emma who was on her second ride with the club and who hadn't been put off (yet) by certain FW legends last week.

Taking the usual route to Gweek we kept our height and whilst avoiding abundant potholes, linked up with the middle road out of Gweek up to the Half way house. A quick spin up the main road to the Spar shop and a left took us back on the usual route to Penmart & the reservoir.

Warm enough to sit outside with our coffee we headed home via the metropolis of Stithians and then back to Falmouth via Halvasso.

If you want to beg, borrow or steal any articles or our pictures (as if) we will take it as a compliment. No, really, we will.
