Club Meeting Report, March 31st

The turnout was lower than usual for last night’s meeting, and we received apologies from Sonjia, Adrian, Dean E, Simon, Jan, Dean G, and Steve H.  Several members have had Covid but all are recovering.

Fred chaired the meeting.

Past Events:  The Pathfinder from Cardinham Woods on February 27th was attended by 22 members, who enjoyed(?!) a hilly 30 mile ride, with some lovely scenery and an excellent stop for lunch at the Jamaica Inn.  Pilates has finished for the summer and hopefully will start again next winter – it has been very successful.  The first Pub Ride of the year took place last Wednesday.  Meet at HQ at 6pm, details on What’s App.  Sunday and Wednesday rides have been well attended.

Eddie Angells has donated a bike carrier to the club – it goes on a tow hitch and can take two bikes.  Fred is storing it if anyone would like to borrow it.

Coming Events:  Pathfinder on Sunday April 3rd is from the car park in St Columb Major,  meet at 10am.  Lunch at Trevose Head.  The club Audax is on Sunday April10th from Falmouth Cricket Club.  Get your entries in soon, the closing date is Wednesday 5th and there’ll be no entries on the day.  The 100k route will be the original one via Marazion.  Thanks to everyone who has volunteered to bring a cake for the Audax tea, but more would be welcome!

Something different to go to:  the Ukulele concert at the Tolmen Centre in Constantine, is on Friday 8th.  It’s at 7 for 7.30pm, tickets £5.

After the meeting closed we enjoyed a film – ‘The Soul of a Cyclist’ which celebrated the joy owning and riding a classic bike.  Made in Portugal, and mostly subtitled, it included some stunning scenery and wonderful get togethers of classic bike enthusiasts, all in period costume.  Shots of the ‘Tweed ride’ through London were great fun, as were the scenes of a French festival of classic bicycles and their riders.  An inspiring film, although we felt that those bikes would be hard work in hilly Cornwall!  Thanks to Amanda for organising the film show.
