OGIL’s Ride report 27th June

OGIL Ride to St Mawes
Another lovely day with not a cloud in the sky. So off I cycled to Union Corner to find Dean on his own. Soon after Kath, who only has one friend, turned up. We were just about to leave when Emma arrived, but she had to go to work later so would only stay with us until the other place.
At the other place only Keith, Mike and Paul were waiting so only six this week which made decision making easier. St Mawes had been decided on as the wing was easterly, giving a head wind out and tail wind home, at least that was the theory. Off we went via Halvaso, right at Jim’s old place and through Stithians and Perranwell. Then across to Devoran and Point to the King Harry Ferry. Not long to wait at the ferry and we were off and up the hill on the other side where Paul and Kath decided to sprint to St Just. The rest of us caught up eventually. A cafe was found and our orders were placed although we were almost thrown out when Paul asked if the scones were fresh. The management was not amused. After tea, coffee, ‘fresh’ scone and other stuff we wandered over to the beach to admire the view.
Time to leave and Mike and Kath decided to take the quick and easy way back on the ferry to Falmouth leaving the four of us to finish the job and ride home. Just outside St Mawes and Dean was visited by the P fairy. It was quickly sorted and we were back on our way. Returning via King Harry and Devoran. Keith headed off at Perranarworhal and Paul left us on Treluswell leaving Dean and I to do Hangmans Hill and home.
This was brought to you in an untimely manor from your stand-in reporter as Dean is saving his energy for the Dartmoor Classic 100 mile Sportive on Sunday. Good luck to Dean.
