A massive thanks to everyone who took part in this years Falmouth Carnival under what must be described as 'difficult conditions' to say the least. A special mention must go to Rhys, Adrian's grandson, Ben, Fred's grandson and Winn, Caroline's grandson who must have smiled the entire time and looked like they were enjoying every minute. Wheelers in the making and supporting the statement 'you never regret going',. Thanks also to Liz, Jo, Caroline, Fred and Adrian. I'm already thinking of what to do next year!!!
Please note that the date for the off roading event is Sunday 19th August.
Since the long ride got lost going to Penzance on Sunday they'll have to try again this week.
We had a successful carnival meeting last night. If you are taking part meet at Falmouth Rugby Club from 5.30 ready to leave at 6.30.
My previous post was regarding Falmouth Carnival. If anyone can edit it I would be grateful.
Don't forget that if you taking part in the carnival, or would like to take part, there is a meeting at my house this evening at 6.30. It's a fun event and a great showcase for the club.
After last weeks wash out I've put Penzance back in the Calendar for tomorrow.
Yes, Dean - perhaps I should change my 'handle' to Richard 753?

Following on from this evening's meeting, there will be a meeting at Kath's house on 6 August for all those intending to enter the Carnival. Meeting starts at 6.30 pm, prompt. This year's theme is "The Falmouth Stealers". Nothing to do with Reynolds tubing, Richard, but you are still expected to be there.
Kath wants to know who is interested in going in the Carnival on 11th August, details on our entry at the meeting on Thursday.
Le Tour: Watched the brilliant Alpine Stage 11 between Albertville and La Rosiere Espace San Bernardo. More to the point – with the Froome-obsessed media coverage, especially the BBC – what a joy to see Geraint Thomas’ superb win: cracking viewing watching him conquering everyone in such style. To be the virtual Yellow Jersey holder, and then to confirm it with such a striking and impressive win. Congratulations to that man – probably the best stage win in a Grand Tour I have ever seen! R75
Thanks Simon for a really excellent Pathfinder - many new lanes ridden, having not been in that area for many years. The 'hill from hell' just before St Mabyn was 'interesting'! Great day out enjoyed by all. R75
Fantastic Pathfinder today......wow! Lovely scenery, great company, a beautiful coffe stop and wonderful pub garden lunch. Thank you for organising a fabulous day out for the seventeen Wheelers who made the effort to cycle or travel to Noth Cornwall. Well done to the new ‘slim’ Raymondo who must have ridden over 120 miles! Phil Samuel
I'm leaving from Tresillian lay by about the same time.
Anyone riding to Simon’s Pathfinder we’ll be leaving from the Norway Inn at 8am.
I'll be starting from Tresillian layby just past Mercedes garage on Sunday to go to Simon's pathfinder. 7.45am it's about 23 miles on the direct route if anyone wants to join in. Can offer lift for one. Phil
What's 11 miles Chris?
Ok. Fair enough but is only 11 miles. We've been further on a Wednesday
Yes, if you leave at 5.
