The short long ride report, 24 March 2019.

With a goodly group away in France I was not expecting many to be at H.Q. but I was surprised, must have been the weather and what a glorious day it was. Six of us set out for Newquay and I think about seven set off for Porthleven. In our group of six we had two new, hopefully to become, members names of Martyn and Hutch who were not sure what they were letting themselves in for but they proved […] Read More


Please can we have any charity nominations in time for the next meeting which is this Thursday. For those not at the last meeting, we are naming 3 local  charities for the coming year and all money raised will be split between these charities equally. There is an area on the website for nominations or alternatively let either myself, Liz, Sonjia or Fred know.

Blue is the new green

Excuses for not riding on Ian’s pathfinder at the weekend abounded at Union Corner this morning but it was time for the off before I had to make mine. And it wasn’t the reason why I lagged behind the rest on the way over to the other place. 4 of us had left Falmouth and double that number was assembled on the turn when I arrived. Jan is off skiing so this was our full compliment. St Agnes was suggested […] Read More

Longrock Pathfinder Report

I awoke bright and early on Sunday, looked out if the window and it wasn’t raining! “Bugger” I thought “no excuse not to go out” so I set o off at exactly 7.33am to meet the others at crane garage. Unfortunately for me I have barely ridden a bike in the 5 months since Dave’s Pathfinder to Dutchy Nursery so 27 minutes proved too little time to rendezvous with thee others. So a quick pause just before Halvasso turn to […] Read More

Nigel toys with a bit of sunbathing

Trump may have had problems dealing with Stormy Daniels but Storm Gareth was no match to the 9 OGIL who set out this morning for a short ride to Helston boating lake. Traffic Light Lane only adds 4 minutes to the ride to Union Corner but enough to mean that I only just arrived in time for the Grande Depart. Time and OGIL wait for no man. In this case it was just Adrian and Nigel who lead off to […] Read More

Sunday 10th March A windy ride to Portreath

It was wild and windy but I expected to see more than the other five who turned up at HQ on Sunday morning. We had no rain and the wind was never really a problem. It was even sunny as you can see from the photo. Robin led us down to Commercial road and soon we split with Ian (single speed) and Teresa carrying on while Philby, Dave (just returned from a month in NZ) and I followed Robin up […] Read More

OGIL say “Pffff” to Showers

At 7.23am I was woken by Mother Nature in all her glory. Even Max (Headwind) was trying to lift the roof off to get inside, out of the rain. Mystic Meg still suggested a showery morning and a dry spell starting around 9. By the time I had got back from the loo the WhatsAp group was busy with excuses. Simon had made the mistake of looking out of the window rather than relying on technology and others had thought […] Read More
