Eleven Wheelers turned up, including two on sparkies, at Gnomeworld for the start of the October Pathfinder, organised by Phil Conroy. I thought there would have been a bigger turnout but it had been a bad week for Wheelers coming off their bikes so we were down by at least two of the usual suspects. Maybe the prospect of the Clay Country on a dull day may have deterred the less adventurous but they missed a really interesting route on […]

OGIL ride report 6th September 2023 It was a hot and sticky morning, with only a handful of us out for the ride. As is fast becoming the norm, a storm of WhatsApp messages the day before sowed more confusion that clarity over the destination. Phil1 had proposed Melinsey Mill, only for Amanda to declare the Roseland as a no-go area for her, and for Dean the Elder to explain that he will be out but will not be taking […]
OGIL ride report 30th August 2023 The power of the OGIL WhatsApp group asserted itself on the morning of the ride, with the early start contingent (aka Amanda) announcing cryptically “Sea bean” after asking for the destination to be notified so that she could meet us (or not) later. After some discussion amongst the ten of us assembled at TOP, we concluded that this was probably the name of the cafe by the Camborne Redruth Community Hospital at Barncoose. In […]
OGIL ride report 23rd August 2023 A dive into history with this report, which has been gestating at the back of my mind for a while. As we are now 2½ weeks after the event, my recollection will necessarily be a bit hazy, but with any luck so will that of the personae dramatis, allowing me to be a little creative if need be. Of course, Strava does not lie (at least most of the time) so the route and […]
This month’s Pathfinder was led by Ian and started from the Church Field car park in Camelford. 16 Wheelers gathered at 10am. Martyn and Margaret arrived a bit late and were delayed putting their tandem together – they caught up with us later. We left in groups of four, going up Trefrew Road, back onto the A39 for a short distance, then right onto the road/cycle track across Bodmin Moor – Brown Willy was off to our right and there […]

The forecast suggested it might be dryish so a good turnout at HQ was expected. What a disappointment just Richard Trevor3 and myself . Amanda, Ian & Adrian had set off at sparrow fart. Robin and Ben were cycling with Andy. Trevor ( Red leader ), Sonjia, Don, Charlie, jill, Steve, Mike & Barbera were headed for Yorkshire so there we are. Trevor suggested Trevassack Lake and as i could not think of any reason not to go there we […]
