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 arrive in groups of up to five, ( though no one is counting 🥴) and contact me before hand by WhatsApp or text message (07769565796). We’ll operate half hour slots from 11:00 until 2:00. Once a group has taken a slot I’ll post that on the Wheelers WhatsApp group and on the message board. It will be outside and in our garage and there will be a roaring log fire in the yard. We’d be very grateful for any cake you bakers – please contact Gill or me beforehand. 😃🍰🧁🥧🍩
I’ve organised a short but hilly route on Strava ( I rode it on Saturday ) if you feel a need to challenge yourself on your first ride of 2021!! It’s only about 17.50 miles but has over 800 mts of climbing. 🤪🚴🏼♂️
THE MYLLORCA CHALLENGE
The “suggested” New Years Day ride starts at “Just Delights” 😂😂😂😂in Penryn and immediately heads up past St Gluvias church and on to Flushing. Turn around at the “Severn Stars” in Flushing ( you might want to stop for a drink – and a scotch egg 🥴) then back up the hill to Mylor Churchtown. Turn around at the cafe ( or stop for a coffee but no need for a scotch egg ) then head back up the hill to Mylor village where you can stop for another drink providing you’ve still an appetite for scotch eggs – then on up Passage hill turning right at the junction to Weir Beach. At the beach take in the view, ponder whether you are yet half way through this torture, turn around and head back up eventually turning right at the cross roads signposted the “Pandora Inn”. Once in the car park, take a deep breath,( or stop for a drink, scotch egg etc?) then back up the hill turning right at the junction and head towards the Norway Inn. Once at the junction either cross over the busy main road for refreshments ( drink/scotch egg?? ) or immediately turn around and drag yourself up “the murderer” turning right at the junction next to Carclew Lodge to descend to the main road once more. Give yourself a good talking to and dismiss all ideas of shortening the route. Head back up the hill turning first right up “Hangman’s” and ride all the way to Penryn. At the main road start thinking CAKE and warm fire. Don’t go home – instead ride back up Truro Hill to a warm reception at the “Lockdown Inn” Mylor Downs.🚴🏽😃
