That should have read “post lockdown pubbing”! Obviously a new word. Not to be confused with pubing.
Post lockdown punning. I suggest that everybody turns up at 6:00 tmrw at HQ and a decision made then regarding numbers and venues. Amanda has booked a table for 6 wheelers at the Royal Standard which may suit us all - or arrival times could be staggered. Or sit at different tables. Or use the Seven Stars. Or the Lemon. The fact is we rarely get more than a handful turn up for a pub ride these days. 😃🚴🏽🍺🍷🍹🚴🏽🤪
Hi all, I'm part of a research project on cycling infrastructure in Falmouth and Penryn. If you live in/regularly visit Falmouth & Penryn via any means of transport we'd like to hear from you! Please share your views on current cycling infrastructure through this short anonymous survey or feel free to ask any questions via the email address listed in the survey. Many thanks and happy cycling! Emily
Hi everyone and hope you're all well and got out on the bikes over the Easter weekend in the lovely weather- I was asked by Phil Samuels to write a reminder to you all to join Cycling UK if not members already as it gives you Bike and personal accident insurance as well as third party liability , legal help and retail discounts and six great cycling magazines ! I used my cover when involved in a collision in 2014 and Slater Gordon - a top law firm - handled my case superbly and made the whole experience stress free - I was able to recoup my lost earnings as well as receiving compensation for my injuries. I highly recommend joining at a cost of £48 adult membership or £75 joint per year. It makes you feel safer when out on the roads and I also belong to ETA ( The Ethical Choice ) bike rescue for £24 a year in case of mechanical failure!! Happy cycling Paula
Thank you all for the beautiful flowers I received today. It's been reassuring for me having you there and helping Steve and myself while I was away with Mum. All the messages have been really supportive for me. It's not just about cycling (and beer!) Looking forward to getting back with the groups cycling.
I hear that Richard753 has been in the wars again, although he escaped with only bruised ear lobes. The driver of an Electric Toyota attempted to over take him at a far too narrow point along the road from Devoran to Point. Far from apologising she suggested that Richard was in her way. Seems that road is jinxed for him.

From Richard 753 “Out on the bike near Point when the chain jammed then broke at the “quick link”. Rejoined the very filthy chain with new one -i always carry spares! The culprit was on of those flat headed roofing nails- you just don’t know what is waiting for you in the road. R753"
Richard (R753) has just let me know that his computer has died, so he is looking to acquire a second hand laptop. If anyone has one they wish to sell him give him a ring. Must have Microsoft Word loaded but I don’t think he links it to the internet.
Kath asked for contributions for the Annual Magazine in a previous Chair’s report and I have contacted a few individuals for ideas since. We are very pleased with the response so far. We shall start fitting the content on to the pages early next month so I hope that those who said they would contribute are busy scribbling away at this very moment. If anyone else fancies appearing in print, you are not too late. Just let Fred or myself know you have something in mind and send us the finished document, as a Word file preferably but pen and ink is acceptable, as soon as possible
Hi Recently moved down here. I’ve sold my vehicle and relying on my bicycle for getting around Falmouth. I’m totally shocked at the ‘anti-cycling’ attitudes that prevail around here. From motorists to pedestrians, the prehistoric authorities that close roads and insist on cyclists dismounting. And it feels far more dangerous than my previous home town of Edinburgh, far more advanced in their facilitating of cycling. I’ve just moved back 20yrs! Is there a local organisation which campaigns for cycling and facilities for safe cycling in Fal? Thanks Duncan
The Fal Cycling Campaign facebook group hasn’t been active for more than a year. I have failed to contact the owner so have started a new group, the Falmouth & Penryn Cycling Campaign. I know CC are working on improvements to cycling provision between Falmouth and Penryn so thought we need to be in on the debate. If you use facebook, do join.
