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 down to Poldhu for excellent breakfasts, bacon bap and toast with our coffees.

Discussions revolved around cycling tours and medical issues while Mike and I struggled to eat our mammoth full English breakfasts.

Ian led us home on the usual route to Culdrose, Muddy Lane and, avoiding the busy traffic on the main road, taking the quieter but hillier lanes to Porkellis and Carnkie.

A wonderful ride……47 miles for me.
