Ride of attrition

Like freckles, the sun brought out a goodly number of OGILs for today’s ride, including those known to be allergic to rain. No shorts today, although Dean was cheekily displaying his ankles in a fetching half calf length number. A total of ten of us, including new rider Sam, studying animal behaviour at the Exeter University Penryn campus. Despite talking to him at length, it was not entirely clear whether he was just joining us for a ride or whether […] Read More

Destinations and route options discussed, a shortish trip to Helston Boating Lake was decided. In fact, we had only a light sprinkling of drizzle as we rode to Gweek via Brill and Tolvan Cross, along Gweek Drive and through Trelowarren to the […] Read More

Fantastic Quiz Night

Thanks to Martyn,  Margaret and Adrian for yet another evening filled with quizzical looks , thoughtful moments and a lot of fun. Who knew that St.Neot was only 18inches tall??? £35.00 was raised from the raffle and thanks to everyone. Roll on to the next one.

Bluebell in Autumn

Although the forecast was for some rain, apart from a few early drops the conditions looked benign enough as a select few (three) assembled at Union Corner. When we reached the other place, the few seemed even more select as the place was deserted. Did we have the right day? we wondered. But we were saved by the slow dribble of other riders arriving, busily removing an alarming number of layers in response to the slightly higher temperature than anticipated.  […] Read More
