Robin and Gill would like to thank everyone for their generous contributions to St Petrocs. £150 raised. A great turn out of wheelers, guests and great cakes.
Tomorrow that is.
Meeting at 4 o'clock Crane Garage Longdowns for the ride up to Goldsithney re Mousehole lights ride. Plenty of time for punctures, getting lost and even a pint!

Replying to Robin - I don't think it can have been any of us, because I turned up to HQ at 10am on Sunday, but no one was there - put off by the weather? On my way home a very heavy shower came through. I hope they can trace the car driver, and there would have been plenty of witnesses. Was the cyclist hurt?
I've just received a call from a young chap who witnessed an incident on Sunday where one, of a large group of cyclists, was knocked off their bike by a car, and the offending driver drove away without stopping. This took place at the junction near the Norway at around 11:30. He drove after the vehicle and managed to get the registration - he then went on to contact the police. However, because he took chase he wasn't able to establish which club the cyclist belonged to. Was it one of our rides? The 9 o'clock ride headed West.
A Happy Christmas to all Wheelers and great cycling In 2019 * R753

Sad news. Paul Sherwen died on Sunday in his sleep aged only 62. Well respected pro rider in the 70s and 80s on the international scene and well known broadcasting partner of Phill Liggett on ITV's coverage of the Tour de France. One of the small band of Brits who broke into the European scene and rode 7 Tours and commentated on 33 others.
Don't forget that on Monday 3rd December a representative from Watt Bikes will be at The Hub (Falmouth School) at 7.00 p.m. to demonstrate the new Watt bikes and show us all of their functions. All welcome, you don't have to be a member of The Hub. I understand there will be a short 'class' too.
