Days 1-2

The tour or Majorca has begun. Robin, Phil 4, John and Amanda This is why we’ve come to Majorca, it’s warm and sunny and our taxi driver is a font of knowledge and confirms our belief that we chose a good location. The villa in Pollenca is everything and more then we ever expected.  The Bougainvillia  perfectly shades  our outside dinning area; lemons dropping from the trees and an exotic fruit, that we don’t know the name of, but our […] Read More

Lucy’s London Marathon Report!

It’s Lucy again! The last time I wrote I was making my final preparations for the 38th Virgin Money London Marathon and now I am an official finisher.   I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who made my cake sale at Wendron such a success. On the day I managed to raise £112 for Mind, and I couldn’t of done that without all of your kind donations, whether that be from making or buying cake, […] Read More

The Chair gets the casting vote

Before I got to Bicklandwater Rd I had doubts about my summer attire, so returned home to grab my Night Vision jacket, available from Evans Cycles, and good job too. Open the side vents during the odd moments of warmth and zipped up tight whilst it decided whether to rain or hail over Blackwater way. Even with the “temporary” traffic lights by the football club I was at Union Corner before Kath and Ian, but Phil1 was already propping up […] Read More

Stithian Sunset

The Wednesday evening pub ride destination was the Golden Lion by Stithians Lake, and what a superb evening it was – just as was forecast. How nice when they get it right! I rode there from home via Cot Hill and the Lakeside Café for a coffee; then to sit in the sun at the Golden Lion. Julian was already there and then the others arrived> They decided to go inside as it was a bit cold so sit out […] Read More

In case a certain little lady passes by.

I thought I would be wearing my Night Vision jacket from Evans Cycles all year, but today, today was an opportunity to leave it safely on the back of the door, and not only that; the shorts came out for an airing, though we were lucky not to pass any horses and frighten them with my winter legs. And where else would you want to go on such a day? Poldhu, of course, and unlike the club Audax day, there […] Read More

The best Wednesday this week.

Although Mystic Meg had suggested it was to be a sunny day it was raining when I got up and I did wonder whether I was the first, the last or the only one to be at Union Corner; but Kath, Phil1 and finally Ian eventually joined me. John was already at Halvasso turn when we arrived, with Keith, Mike2, Phil3 and Andrew. Though the weather had cleared by now I suggested a roundabout route to Miss Molly’s and with […] Read More
