A Nice Comment About us!

We don’t often receive e mails on our ‘Contact Us’ e-mail address that are not about membership enquiries so not worth sharing.  This one however is just something I thought I’d like to share with you all. Non Edited!

Denis P Gibson has sent the following message from the Contact Us page on

“Hi, must contact you and mention a great sight  on Sat morn while looking out of the B&B window.

We, my wife and I, had driven up from Falmouth Cornwall the previous evening for, 1) for appointment for herself at Derriford hospital, 2) Kayak across river Tamar in afternoon and 3)see a blues band in pub in evening.

We did all three and as we stayed overnight in Railway Hotel, on the top of the steep road which descends to the bridge piers, Maria just looked out the window, 10 ish time, and shouted me to look/see, and what we saw was a terrific sight of your club on lovely bikes, coming up, I assume, the hill, which, to me, at my age, (ive been into cycling since Eddy Merckx era) I could not manage at all.

As I say, the group looked ace in the YOGI tops and some smart bike`s an all, I take thousands of pickys but I just couldn’t get down from 3 floor in time to get some shots.

My wife said to me,  “it looks like a Pro team as they all looked sleek and brown”…so, wish you all well and again, a wonderful site all those bikes, impressed.

So a thanks to Den and his wife for such nice words.

    To Dennis and Maria,

    —- in fact, we did not climb the hill, but had just exited from the Tamar Bridge cycle/footpath, which joins near the top of the hill.

    In honour of your good selves, and Eddy Merckx, I propose that, the next time we cross the Bridge, we loop around the Saltash Waterfront, and climb up said hill (Lower Fore Street), and back to The Railway Hotel.

    Many of our number Kayak also, —-which is the nautical equivalent of cycling— ?
