Report on the February meeting

When the AGM closed on Zoom on Thursday evening, (which was attended by 18 members –  see the Members Only section to read the minutes), we turned to general discussion after Kath had opened her leaving present of a rose bush in a pot, appropriately named ‘Proper Job’, to thank her for her excellent leadership and hard work over the last three years.  Hopefully the rose will thrive in her garden and be covered in red blooms by June! We […] Read More

CYCLING IN THE COVID ERA (Part 2)

Well, here we are a few months on and not a lot has really changed – at least as far as cycling is concerned. How are other Wheelers ‘surviving’? I am still doing as many rides a week as possible: keeping local which means around 25 miles a day along now-familiar lanes and still avoiding too many main roads. The odd quick dash along ‘suicide alley’ – only to get me to different routes a little quicker. I often do […] Read More

Thrills and Spills in a Life on 2 Wheels (continued from the 2020 Wheelers Magazine)

It does become a bit of a pain in the proverbial riding 265km a day on one of the ultra long distance events as the Calais-Brindisi had been in 1984 after so many continuous days in the saddle. So it was going to be five years before I attempted another one. It was time for something completely different. Sportives existed only in Europe in the 80s, not at home. The attitude of the authorities here towards cycling of any kind […] Read More

Report on our January 28th Zoom Meeting

For the second time, our monthly club meeting was held on Zoom, with 13 members joining in.  Various issues were discussed, and Phil reported that 39 members have already paid their subs for 2021, which is the fastest ever.  Using bank transfer has been very successful – it’s easier for everyone and will be continued from now on.  Our new line up of club officials were announced, with Fred taking over from Kath as Chairman, Amanda becomes the Vice chair, […] Read More

VeloVino Saturdays at 6pm

Saturday night is our Velovino evening to get together for an hour (ish) and catch up with each other. At the moment we’re only able to cycle locally with one another so this is a chance to hear about the creative routes we’ve been on as well as any other world topics that crop up. BYO wine, tea, beer….. It’s just nice to have bit of a chat. See you Saturday’s at 6pm Click the link – Topic: Velovino Time: Saturday […] Read More

New Year Greetings

Welcome to 2021 and from here we will look forward to all of our lovely coffee stops being open and thriving and lots more cycling events taking place. It was really unfortunate timing that we had to cancel the annual trip to Robin and Gills on New Years Day but I’m sure that once the Lockdown restrictions are eased then their garage will be welcoming us with open arms again.  (I will have to check this with Robin though) I […] Read More

New Years Day Charity Fundraiser CANCELLED

Sorry folks, but due to Cornwall now being placed in Tier 3 we can no longer host the New Years Day fundraiser.      You are all cordially invited to our annual New Years Day charity fundraiser – at the “Lockdown Inn”! The weather is looking slightly less outrageous so there’s the hope a few can cycle over. We will serve coffee ☕️and flapjacks/cake 🍰 from 11:00 am but due to Cornwall’s Tier 2 status you will have to arrange to […] Read More

December meeting

This month was our zoom Christmas party and Awards night.  It is with many thanks to Amanda for her work setting up and promoting this and the other zoom meetings that we have had.  It was Christmas trees, Christmas jumpers and hats along with festive Decorations for this months meeting.  Sadly we are still not in Woodlane where we would have soon been tucking into homemade sausage rolls, quiche, cheeses and all of the other delicious buffet food that Wheelers […] Read More
