July Pathfinder information
Jun 15, 2011, 12:52 pm

Ironman has now put me down for doing the July Pathfinder.  I am sure to be recovered by then.  Anyway, I have planned it all as follows: Date is Sunday 17th July, start at St Columb Major, Trekenning Road Car Park (free parking) at 10am - click here to see where it is.  I guess the usual early birds will meet and ride over. Destination, er wait and see, although the picture on the left may be a giveaway.  There is a nice cafe and loos there, so that's a good thing. Dan Dare
This ride is designed for all members and all abilities but there may be some hills along the way. Ed.

Another pub, another great ride - 08/06/11
Jun 9, 2011, 10:04 am

It might be a record for a midweek club ride with 20 cyclists departing HQ on a blustery but sunny evening. There were some new faces in the crowd and some ladies even formed their own small breakaway to go at their own pace and to their own refreshment stop. The main group made their way to the Fox and Hounds at Comford (near Lanner) along some very quiet, pretty lanes - it is a great time of the year to be riding in the country isn’t it?

I thought that one or two of the hills along the way may have been unnecessary but I managed to keep my speed down going up them so as to save energy for later. Thankfully there were no punctures or mechanicals and apart from a brief stop en route to discuss which Fox and Hounds pub to patronise – Lanner or Scorrier – the ride went smoothly. There were some faster younger chaps at the front and some slower older chaps at the back but we just about managed to stick together. All in all another great ride. Click here for the 25 mile route. Jono
Footnote: I’ve been busy carbo loading for months now and saving my legs from over-exercise whenever I can but for some reason I found Hangman’s Hill at the end a bit testing. On top of that my lycra seems to have shrunk in the wash. All very disappointing.


Wednesday Evening Ride to Wendron - 01/06/11
Jun 2, 2011, 5:16 pm

Eric (a.k.a. Shane) was away ‘doing the silage’ down on the Lizard so we decided to go for his suggested ride last week, the failed attempt to get to the Wendron New Inn near, er, Wendron, which was called off due to rain, thirst and lack of moral fibre at Constantine.
Seventeen of us, yes, seventeen of us, left HQ and within 2 miles we had our first puncture. Without too much fuss JB installed a new tube to discover that it was punctured as well. Red Leader gallantly fell on his pump and bravely gave JB his only spare. The puncture repair tail-enders then attempted to catch up the rest of the group only to discover 5 more miles into the ride John all alone at the side of the road fixing a puncture. He said he would probably go home and we weren’t to wait around so we carried on and eventually we made it to the pub and enjoyed a nice pint with everyone else, sitting in the evening sun. (Apparently the pub is haunted - click here to read some nonsense about it.)

Just as we were saddling up to go John appeared, hot and tired and well ready for a pint. We didn’t do the sensible thing and have another – God knows why – but dragged poor thirsty John home with us instead. What a nice chap, he didn’t complain at all but I think he definitely deserves a free pint on the next evening run. Click here to see the route, which is rather good.


KK's alternative French trip 10 o'clock ride 29/5/11
May 29, 2011, 2:10 pm

KK took his Ducklings to a new cafe stop near Constantine, the Potager.  We were greeted by a waitress with a French accent, which made KK think he was lost and the rest of us thought we're back on the French trip.  Not a very long ride but another cafe stop close to home for bad weather days.  Full report in the newsletter.

New Cornish Sportiff happening in October
May 24, 2011, 12:35 pm

A brand new Cyclosportive, ‘the Lands End 100’ is happening this year in West Cornwall organised by Cornwall Council with support from One and All Cycling
Club.

The available details are: Start and finish at St Ives Leisure Centre, 16th October 2011
2 circular routes - 100 miles and 100km
The 100 mile route will take riders around the coast of West Cornwall taking in the most Westerly (Lands End) and Southerly (The Lizard) peninsulas in Britain before heading back to the North Coast to finish. The 100 km route will follow the same route around Lands End and part of the way to The Lizard where the riders will cut across country to join the North Coast road and back to St Ives. They are hoping to make this an annual event on the cycling calendar.
Entries will be open by the end of June and also further information will be available then at www.cornwall.gov.uk/sportsevents

Read all about it - Truro MAMILS return in triumph
May 24, 2011, 12:09 pm

The Truro MAMILS have heroically completed their JOGLE and their blog (click here and scroll down to the bottom) makes a very entertaining and enlightening read. En route they 'gayly kiss the skirts of Gloucester', wonder about dying of hypothermia and compare pizza prices and on the final stage are treated to free tea and cake by our very own Auntie Gill.

Even with appalling weather in Scotland and having to cross mountains Oakhampton and Launceston sounded like the toughest bits. Well done chaps!
