First ride of the new Penzance group is a great success!

We are 9 riders on a cool sunny day. We meet up at The Lands End Cycle Hire at Long Rock which overlooks St Micheal’s Mount, which is especially nice today in the sunshine.

Andy leads the way through quiet lanes to the villages of St Erth and Leedstown, rolling countryside with masses of daffodils all around.

We stop awhile at the popular Trevaskis Farm Shop, near Connor Downs for our coffee stop. There is a large selection of maybe 20 splendid cakes and savories greeting us in a long display cabinet.

Refreshed, the route back takes in Hayle and then retracing the way from St Erth and Long Rock to our starting point.

Rides are fortnightly with the next one on Sunday 26th March. Meet up at 10am at The Lands End Cycle Hire at Long Rock.

Liskeard Men’s Easyrider First Group Ride Saturday 25th March

If you are interested in returning to cycling and would like to try a gentle group ride then this might be the group for you.  The group will go out from Liskeard Town Centre (meeting 9.00 am at The Parade, next to the fountain PL14 6AW) on every last Saturday of the month.  Led by an experienced member of Cornwall CTC, the first ride will be approximately 10 miles with a social café stop at Darite Village Hall (bacon butties, cake and good coffee).

No need for any special sort of bicycle and if you would like help with making sure your bicycle is roadworthy, Russell at Liskeard Cycles will be able to check it over for you.  For further information contact Dave  07906 165337

For your diary

With the current weather being so miserable, it is time to think about better weather and to save the dates of our two key 2017 summer cycling events:

CTC Cornwall  Camping Trip  – Saturday 3rd June and Sunday 4th June, 2017

Usually a ride of approximately 40 miles; an overnight stay at a camp site with evening meal at a pub or restaurant; breakfast on site and cycle back.  Camping gear transported separately and the option of cycling just one way with transport the other way.

CTC Cornwall Long Summer Cycle Ride – Sunday 13th August, 2017

A longer (up to 80 miles) all day ride with transport back for bicycles and cyclists.  The last two years have been rides from Liskeard to Lands End and Liskeard to Lizard Point.  This year’s ride will be from Liskeard to somewhere on the north coast.

We very much hope you can join us!
