Looking like it will be wet tmrw morning. I’ll organise a WattBike session at Falmouth Sports Hub if a few are interested instead of riding. Suggest 10:00 o’clock.
Attention, everyone who comes on the winter Sunday 10 O'clock ride - it was agreed today that we'll meet at 9.30am from now on, as the mornings are much lighter on fine days, unless it's really gloomy and damp, when we might revert to 10am. If you're not sure, text Sonjia or Denise to find out what's happening. Thanks!
Is anyone driving over to Robin and gills tomorrow that could drop by Budock Water and give steve a lift please? If so, please give me a call or message. Thanks.
New Years Day ride. I'll be at HQ at 9am if anyone fancies a ride before heading to Robin and Gill's place

As I mentioned at the meeting, and now put up on the Audax Kernow site, there is an AUK offer that essentially gives you your £3 supplement back if you rode on the Celtic Coastal/Canter as a non-AUK member and now want to join. The direct AUK link for details is https://www.audax.uk/join-us/. Benefits: the magazine is a good read/inspiring/terrifying, you save the £3 each ride, and you get to buy an Audax Kernow jersey if you want one.
We’ve managed to secure the studio at Falmouth school Sports Hub for WattBike training on both Wednesday evenings at 6:30 and Friday evenings at 6:00. Let me know whether you want to attend either session.
Interesting article - What's in a name. A territory familiar to me and near to where I used to live and cycle. Trewherry, Tregustick, Nanswhyden, Trerice, Rialton, Talskiddy and others - you may not know or recall, but I am sure Wheelers have been through these at some time since I have been riding with the club.

A bit of trivia. On the return from Sunday's ride (my part of it) I thought I would recheck the so-called "4-mile hill" - have I got nothing better to do you may say! Starting at the very bottom where the road crosses the stream - after about half a mile there is a very slight dip (enough to freewheel for a few yards), then the 'climb' continues until 2,7 miles when it definitely goes downhill. So, "4-mile hill is pure fiction! Does anyone else have any other local myths they wish to dispel? R753
The Irish Recce. Our apologies for the lack of a report and any photos covering the four days we spent in the Wicklow Mountains - but good news! I’m hoping to give a short presentation with the help of the club projector at this weeks meeting. Don’t miss it. Trip planned for September next year.
Can I please have the remainder of the Christmas house party (20th December at The Merchants Manor Hotel) money in at the next meeting on 31st October please. £15pp. There are some places available still so if anyone would like to join us, just let me have the full payment of £25.
Christmas do update - The vegan option is the same as the Vegetarian option with a change from clotted cream too sorbet. There are now 19 Wheelers signed up for a great night out. There are still some places available so please let me know if you'd like to join us. Just £25 for a 3 course dinner and dancing. £10 deposit required asap please. You'll find the menu on the webpage. Thanks
Sorry to be difficult, but I will not be doing the Pathfinder this month - so if anyone wants to fill this slot, please feel free to do so. My planned one will now be submitted for 2020 - probably/hopefully in April or thereabouts.. R753

40 riders have entered the 500k Audax that leaves Pendennis Castle at 9.00am tomorrow morning (Saturday). I am hoping to go and wave them off. I'm working In Penzance from 8 so won't be able to ride with them or go for breakfast but am happy to see them on their way.
