In order for our Saturday Road Rides to take place, we need volunteers to lead. If you can lead a ride or two (or even more) that would be fantastic and we would like to hear from you. There is a page of guidance and notes to help ride leaders and new riders here. Our amazing club is run purely by volunteers. If you would like to do your bit, here’s your chance. Thank you! Below is a list of ride dates and leaders, where we have them. If you wish to volunteer please leave a note in the comments section … Read more…
Hi All. Got to be the perfect time to visit the sea side what with Sunshine, warmth and a hol weekend all combining to make it an obvious choice. Route is Cattewater- Millbay-Torpoint Ferry (approx for 10am ferry)-St John-Millbrook- Maker-Cawsand-Whitsand Bay (cafe stop at the Cliff Top)-Tregantle- Anthony-Torpoint-Home. A perfect route of 35 miles albeit a bit hilly but we will take these at a genuine Leisure pace and keep us in a tight group. As ever looking forward to seeing the usual faces and ideally some less familiar/new ones👍!
Ill lead the 14-16 ride this week, we will be going out to Bovey Tracey, stopping at either cafe 64 or cafe 360 depending on size of group.

The sun is shining, it’s a Bank Holiday so surely got to be the perfect day for a century ride to the seaside? Led by our very own Ross Wildman, his plan is a century loop out to Bude with a stop for lunch before heading for home. The plan is to meet at The George (Roborough) at 8.45 a.m. Pace will be around 16-18 although may be quicker as it’s a fast route but it will depend who turns up. Either way, we’ll stay together and work as a group so don’t be shy and the more of us … Read more…

This weeks ride will be a magical mystery tour! Mostly because I can’t decide whether to pick a route with a headwind on the way out or on the way back!! Where are the voting buttons? If you have a preference let me know in the comments below… Suffice to say it will be around 70-75 miles with cafe stop around 45-50 miles in. Great group riding last week guys…to quote Mr Punch “That’s the way to do it!”. 😀
