If you read the website posts you will know that Robin will be making his attempt on the 65-69 Masters Hour record at the Newport Velodrome on Tuesday 20 November. Phil Conroy is looking into transport arrangements for all who want to travel up to Newport to witness this event. We are planning to go up and back in the day and those that have ridden the track before have an opportunity to ride for a session between 12 and 2pm. Transport arrangements will, obviously, depend on the numbers who want to go. Please let Phil know asap whether you would like to be included.
As you have probably already seen on the Home page, the Pedal and Puff has been postponed due to the road works. The event was booked for Saturday October 20th. We will be notified of the new date as soon as possible.
Mevagissey tomorrow anyone? We haven’t been that far East in a while. New route!

Hi All Don't forget that we have our Monthly Club meeting on Thursday. This month we will be having Jono joining us to give us an entertaining talk with Photos following the Reverse Tapas Ride that took place earlier this year.
As most of you know already I'm attempting the hour record under VTTA rules for the age group 65-69. A date is now set - Tuesday 20th November at around 3pm at The Geraint Thomas National Velodrome Of Wales! We hope to be putting on transport for anyone who cares to come along and give support. I'll need it!
The club kit order has arrived. Let me know if you ordered anything and I will put your name on it - before giving the stock to Paula. Summer jerseys now £45 and winter long sleeve £55.
To everyone who was on the ride on Sunday, when we stopped at Hells' Mouth cafe to help a visitor to Cornwall, Cliff Martin, who came off his bike on the corner: We've had a very nice email from him, thanking everyone and especially Amanda for looking after him until the paramedics arrived. Luckily he wasn't seriously hurt, just bruised and scratched by brambles - 'a victim of my own poor bike handling'. He made it back to their motorhome for a late lunch, and is continuing with his Cornish holiday.
It has been suggested that whilst the Road Works continue along Bickland Water Road that we meet at Union Corner instead of our usual HQ for all rides. Does this sound like a sensible suggestion? I'm not sure how long the Works are going on for, maybe someone is able to let us know.
Minutes of the August meeting now in the members area of the Forum
If you haven't put your name down and paid a deposit £10 for the Christmas do, I'll be at HQ on Sunday and happy to take your money.
I'll be collecting names and the £10 deposit for our December House Party tonight. I hope you can all make it along. Please call me if you'd like to come along and are not at tonights meeting and I'll add you to the list. There will be limited space so please make sure you get your name down now as the available places will then be opened up for Hotel club members to fill.
Chris has put Carnival pictures up but we don't have very many, if anybody has more please send them to us.
I've not got access to my email account at the moment. If you have emailed me recently or want something mentioned at the August meeting can you get the information to be via another message please. Thanks
I'm going to drive up on Sunday with Simon. Room for one more.
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!!!
My Nemesi8s awaits on Wednesday - that b****y hill up to Trengilly Wartha! R753
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.
