Hi Dave. I'm very interested in teh trip to France but I'm taking the family to a show in Plymouth on 7th so it could be difficult for me to join you on that day. Andrew
Hello, this is kiwi Dave. I am trying to organise a trip to Brittany in September around the 7th, I would arrange the ferry and accommodation and then we would work out where we are heading the night before. If your'e interested let me know so that I can get on book it.
I forgot to mention at the last Meeting that the Annual Meal at the Lizard, Polpeor Cafe organised by Steve Lightfoot has been booked for Friday 12th July. Please contact Steve or someone who can pass a message to Steve is you would like to go. It's always a good night out in a stunning setting. I am unsure of the time but it is either 6 or 6.30. I'll let Steve confirm the time when you make arrangements.
Chaps, thanks for waiting for me today in the cold and wet conditions. Hope I didn't slow you all up too much.
Christmas Do details are on the News page now. Please have a look and let me know if you'd like to come along. I require a £10pp deposit by 20th July (next meeting please) I know its really early but we're getting a really great deal on this venue. We can fill the whole venue with Wheelers!
Hello there I am investigation a fail to stop RTC that took place in St Wenn on the 19/05/2019 involved a silver and Red Golf. I believe some of the members may have scene the manor of driving
Suggest meeting at the Norway Inn at 8:00am tomorrow for those riding up for Richards Pathfinder. Coffee stop at McDonalds.
Could I settle the argument about '4 Mile Hill' once and for all? From Gweek to Edgcumbe - 4 miles it may just be, but certainly not a continuous climb! Starting from the lowest point where the road crosses the stream it is 2.84 miles (roughly 2 miles and 1526 yards) to where it levels off before a slight descent - this is the extent of the CONTINUOUS climb. I guess we can still call it '4-Mile Hill' unless someone can think of another name for it! R753.
Thanks to everyone who helped with the Audax last Sunday - Richard, Jo, and I had a very enjoyable ride round the Red River, Blue Sea route, 110k in perfect sunshine and not too much wind. Stunning views along the north coast, a warm welcome and food at Gwithian (twice) and Margaret's famous crumble and custard when we finished. Altogether, a great day out!
Just a reminder that the Pathfinder from Victoria Roche on Sunday 19th starts next to the petrol station the Bodmin side of the Roche turning and not at the Victoria Inn! R753
Riding down to Hayle tomorrow for Penzance Wheelers Prostate ride. Only doing the short route. Leaving Crane Garage 0800hours
Minutes of April meeting now in the members area of the Forum.
Sorry to peel off on Sunday's ride but I was not going to keep up! Drifted across to Brill then stopped at the Waymarker for coffee and toasted teacake - reasonably priced, I must be losing my 'marbles' but headed up through Halvarsehole again - twice in one ride! I then wandered off eventually calling at Stithians lake. This turned out to be a pleasant ride all round and doing 42 miles must show signs of improvement? One thing that I noticed was the increasing number of potholes - some really evil ones - one being so deep that I expected to see an engine house beside it! Cannot expect Cornwall Council to do anything about potholes as I am sure they have exhausted their funds on silly horticultural antics at Treluswell roundabout! R753
Many thanks to all involved in making today's Audax a great success. The weather didn't do its worst for which I was very grateful for. The spread back at base was again fantastic and such a welcome cup of tea. It's a fantastic route, thanks Phil, and shows our county off in its best Spring outfit. Thanks again
PATHFINDER - Sunday 19th May. The 10am start will be at Victoria, Roche - next to the BP service station about 100 yards Northeast of the Roche turning.
