Put another Nickel in

It seems that Wednesdays are now going to be wet, so better get used to it. Five of us did our best to become acclimatised this week. There was a lot of discussion on the OGIL WhatsApp group but I was the only one at Union Corner, although Phil1 caught me up before I had gone very far. Phil3, Paul and Mike2 were waiting at the other place. With each of us suitable clothed for the wet start it was […] Read More

Dry Toes at Smokey Joe’s

It was a tad windy…. gusts of 40 to 60 mph apparently but […] Read More

A rousing cheer and enthusiastic clapping greeted Robin as he arrived at HQ after his recent record breaking attempt at the Newport Velodrome. After we settled down the assembled group split in two with one going to Marazion and the other to Roskilly’s. I joined the Fast Boys for a great ride to the Chapel Rock Cafe overlooking St Michael’s Mount. With wet roads but no rain the twelve of us- Robin, Ian, Danny, Phils 2 and 4, Amanda, Fred, […] Read More

O what a beautiful morning

Not quite a Poldhu day, with the wind blowing off the sea, but as near as damn it. Perranuthnoe seemed a good alternative, as it can usually accommodate the OGIL, though we need to be there before 11 when the breakfast menu finishes. Just Phil1, myself and new rider, Pete, at Union Corner but a goodly collection spilling out into the junction at the other place, discussing Mike2’s new Gore-tex jacket. My social influencing wasn’t working. Kath’s absence was noted; […] Read More
