Saturday 14 & 12 Road Rides – 7th February

Hi all, It’s looking like we are going to be short of ride leaders for this week’s 12 and 14 rides. We will therefore resort to how we used to do it in the good old days ( “during the war” as Uncle Albert would say). Meet at B&Q car park at 09:00 and think up a route or routes between us. We are also looking for ride leaders for the months ahead please, if you are available please add a comment to the Ride Leader’s post and I will then update the list, thank you. Ian   :  )

There are plenty of bailout options and a good café stop that we will pass several times.   Anyone is welcome to join us and have ago at 50, 70 or the 100 miles. My words now! I’m intrigued … Read more…


Saturday 12 Road Ride – 17th January

I know this is a rather late post compared to our usual std but we had no volunteer leader for once, however likely I will be riding now so happy to lead.  There is potential for tricky conditions so think it best to head to Cornwall where hopefully the Atlantic Oceans influence will mean less risk, even so we will avoid the usual minor roads as much as possible.. So route is Cattedown – Cattedown Roundabout – Knotte Street – Millbay – Torpoint – Polbathic – Hessenford – Seaton (cafe stop) – Downderry – Coast Road – Anthony – Torpoint Do … Read more…
