Ya’ll come back now! Ya’ hear?

This was not Simon’s call to Mike 2 and Keith, to keep them close to the rest of the pack, but Jed Clampett’s weekly farewell to viewers of the Beverly Hillbillies. And I could have sworn that I heard it again as we left the Atlantic café, at Portreath, during today’s OGIL ride. Just Phil1 and myself met at Union Corner to cycle over to the official OGIL start point at the other place, where we joined Simon, Keith, Paul, […] Read More

Off to see the sunset

At union corner was Sylvia, new rider Dave, who could hardly be called an OGILLER, (neither can Sylvia) Phil, Helston Trevor and myself. We caught  Phil 3 and Mike up in Treverva and Keith and Paul were already there.  With a bit of fresh blood in the camp lots of new venues were being tossed around. It was finally decided that we would go to the Sunset Surf cafe at Gwithian.  This was nearly out of our comfort zone but […] Read More

Lost boys of Helston – found in Roseland

There have been teething problems with our new website – but it’s finally coming good. Or so I thought. After some nagging Chris has provided us with a message board called – “Guestbook” – and on Saturday morning I left a message suggesting a leisurely Sunday ride to St Mawes – the weather looked fine and, after a bit of a climb from the ferry, the road rolls smoothly along the coast and provides snatches of far reaching views of […] Read More

The No ‘Falmouth’ Wheelers OGIL ride to Poldhu – 6th June

An ideal forecast for cycling and so it turned out. Mike C was waiting when I arrived at the other place and soon Ian and John joined us. Where was everyone? All spread out around Europe- Spain, Iceland, Scotland and many other places! At least there were two Penryn Wheelers and two Mawnan Wheelers. A quick chat about destinations followed and Poldhu was agreed. Off we went, through Gweek and Trelowarren, across Traboe Cross and Goonhilly Downs, through Mullion and […] Read More

Women wanted.

The London Walking and Cycling Commissioner (how much does he/she get?) has said that cyclists in London are too white, male and middle class and more needs to be done to encourage women and ethnic minority groups. A trip out to the Dewspring Tea Room with the OGIL today would have given the answer as to why there are fewer women cyclists. It p****d it down for most of the morning. Women, it has to be said, have more sense. […] Read More
