Sunday 15-17 Road Ride – 17th March

So a couple of changes for this week…No rides on Saturday so we’ll head out on Sunday! Second change is we’ll meet at The George at Roborough at 9 – mostly on account of me being lazy! 🙂 From The George we’ll head out to Tavistock but trying to shelter in the lanes, we’ll go via Green Lane and Whitchurch. From there out to Gunnislake and on to Kelly Bray before dropping down to Golberdon and up again to Pensilva! Onwards to Liskeard before ducking back in to the lanes I’m sure we’ll find our way to Trereulefoot eventually! Then … Read more…

Anyone else who wants to do so please post accordingly. It will of course be considered an official club ride for insurance purposes. Should however the forecast … Read more…

Saturday 15-17 Road Ride 2nd March

With a rapidly changing weather forecast a bit of flexibility may be called for tomorrow, but as I type this it’s not looking too bad with no rain until later in the day and blowy but not strong winds! So once again we’ll try to pick up a tailwind home (hahaha!) by heading in to Cornwall. From HQ we’ll head to the bridge, on to Callington and Coads Green before dropping down to Rilla Mill and up, (and up and up) to Minions! It’s then usually a pretty good run to Looe via Dobwalls and Duloe – fast decent from … Read more…
