IntoTR1 are looking for volunteers to help marshal the Falmouth Triathlon on Sunday 15 September. Marshals for both the run and bike sections are needed and for each volunteer they will make a generous donation to the club. Alternatively the marshal can have a free entry into another of the Tri Series events. You would need to attend for a briefing at 7.30 am on the day and it is all over by 11.15 am. Unfortunately I am only back from holiday that day so can’t help but if anyone is interested then please leave a comment here. I am sure most of us have taken part in an event that wouldnt happen if others didn’t come forward to help marshal. Perhaps your turn to pay back and usually great fun.
The Wednesday evening pub ride is going to the Ferryboat Inn this week. It’s also the Falmouth Week Air Show so I’m suggesting, for those that want to, to meet near the Gylly cafe at around 5:45/6:00 and then head off to the pub after we’ve watched for a while. We’ll probably get a view of the planes most of the ride to the Helford!
Well done to everyone who took part in the Ride London 100, and special thanks to Paula and Richard who wrote about it. Thank goodness they had better weather this year. We have been promised more photos in the Gallery - please can we see them soon!
Anyone with articles, or ideas, for this years Annual (Christmas) Newsletter, please send to me by email or facebook message. The sooner the better. Dean
It's there on the calendar. Severn Stars - Flushing. Was decided at the fox and hounds. But I have been made aware of some confusion so it has been changed to the punchbowl. See you in two weeks.
There appears to be some confusion as to where the Wednesday pub ride is going this week, not just the pub name but where was decided on last week.
The long ride is going east this week, so starting at The Norway Inn at 8:30 with Lostwithiel our cafe stop. Expect ride to between 70 and 80 miles but shorter for anyone not planning on continuing to Bodininnick ferry and Fowey. (23 miles by main road from Lostwithiel to Truro). All welcome but need to ride “Amanda pace”. Ask Amanda if unsure!
REMINDER. It's only a week away from the Falmouth Carnival. We had a lot of response at the meeting and are hoping that many more will join us. No fancy dress, No silly costumes just yourself in full Wheelers regalia to promote what a brilliant club we are. Meet at the Falmouth Rugby Club at around 6.00p.m. There will be family entertainment on in the afternoon and of course a bar. See you there.
Mendips Sportive Jan, Amanda and I completed the Mendips Sportive in a cracking time. Brilliant ride and well recommended. Full report to follow.
Thanks Chris - Stithians it is then. R
Sorry Richard. I changed the calendar but completely forgot the what's on in July post. Sorted now.
According to the calendar tomorrow's 'pub' ride is to the 7 Stars Stithians. Acc to What's on in July it is the Ship at Mawgan. Acc to Robin, well - it could be anywhere!. So, WHERE? R753
Wednesday pub ride. Last week saw a last minute change to the destination - from “The Wheel” at Tresillian to the “Ship” at Mawgan (then later “The Black Swan”). After much consultation and discussion - and the use of various algorithms - the chosen pub this week is the “Seven Stars” in Stithians. Possibly the “Stag” later to check on Richard!
There’s still time to book your place at the December House Party at the Merchants Manor Hotel on December 20th. Please let me know if you’d like you name added to the list and then arrange to get the £10 deposit to me on Sunday. ( or near enough) I’m confirming the numbers by the end of the week. Thanks.
Some of us - the more 'sedate' riders - really enjoyed our ride to Portreath on Sunday. The weather was near perfect, not too hot! Out via Halvar****le, Penmarth, Mawla, Dolcoath and Tuckingmill. We noticed how much easier going down Portreath Hill was than going up! We opted for the Tideline café where the service was as usual very prompt with an added sense of humour from the staff. I have to say that my 'Full English' was probably the best ever! We returned up the valley to Redruth and then onwards and upwards to the top of Lanner Hill, then over and down to Penhalvean where I parted company for a coffee at Stithians Lake. Nice day out with the usual good company. Thanks all - R753
Many thanks Simon and team for yet another excellent M&M ride - I echo all that Kath said. R753
Many thanks to all involved in Sunday's Mines and Mineral Audax ride. It's a great route, lovely distance and Pasties and Cream Teas as refreshments. What's not to like. The weather this year was just about perfect too. Kath
Please remember your £10 deposit for the Christmas do. I’ll be at the meeting on Thursday evening. December 20th at the Merchants Manor Hotel. Thanks.
There is now a gpx file for the ON-road Mines & Minerals. Email me if you need one.
Suggest some may want to meet at Devoran (trail car park) at 6 pm tomorrow for the pub ride to the Roseland Inn - instead of HQ. Ferries run on the hour and every twenty minutes - so you should make the 6:40 ferry ok.
