A Crafty wait for cake!

With a sunny and dry forecast for the day it was no surprise that fourteen Wheelers arrived at the ‘other place’ for a ride to Mullion. Fred, Mike C, Simon, Keith and I were waiting there until a peloton from Falmouth arrived- Phil C, Ian, Richard 2, Kiwi Dave, Kath, Emma, Amanda, Dean and Dave Spargo. Destination agreed… The Crafty Slice at Mullion.
Off we went, for the third Wednesday running, down to Gweek, where Admiral left us, along Gweek Drive to Trelowarren and on to Goonhilly Downs. It was a long haul from Traboe Cross, past the still unlevelled manhole where Amanda had her accident to eventually join briefly the Lizard Helston road before turning off to Mullion.
We were warmly welcomed as we made our choices and paid, noticing that, unusually, we significantly reduced the average age of the customers! Our numbers were back up to fourteen when Jan arrived to join us.
There was along wait before the coffee and tea came and an even longer one for cake, toast and diddlers (small cooked breakfasts). It was then time for another coffee to finish our meal, a 1 hour 18 minute stop, still well short of the record of 1 hour 38 at Miss Molly’s a few years ago.
Suitably refreshed we pedalled home. Simon has a deflation at Poldhu so Fred stayed with him and we carried on to Culdrose where Amanda and Emma left us to return through Gweek. We carried on to Helston, Wendron and Crane Garage.
A thoroughly enjoyed ride with a great bunch of people…. as you can see from the photo!
46 miles for me
