Tour of Britain group ride is meeting at 11am at Gylly Beach on Sunday. We’ll ride around the point in groups and then meet again at our start point to go for an afternoon ride.
Falmouth to Lands End Ride - Friday 10th Sept. A small group of friends from my old club in Bromley are doing a 400mile ride from Bromley to Lands End. A bit of a retirement celebration for Andrew (who cycled with the Wheelers a couple of times in the summer). I’m planning to join them for the last couple of days on 9th and 10th September. On the last day, Friday 10th Sept, we’ll be setting off at 9/9.30am and riding from Falmouth to LE, We’d welcome any Wheelers who’d like to join us for the day. The plan is to catch the 4.15pm train from Penzance back to Truro/London. Anyone interested, drop me a line to arrange the meeting point. Sarah .
I am informed that members who want to order club kit that we do not hold in stock can now order direct from the supplier. See Club Kit page for details.

Roll up, Roll up, Roll up. Club Kit inventory has been updated
That should have read “post lockdown pubbing”! Obviously a new word. Not to be confused with pubing.
Post lockdown punning. I suggest that everybody turns up at 6:00 tmrw at HQ and a decision made then regarding numbers and venues. Amanda has booked a table for 6 wheelers at the Royal Standard which may suit us all - or arrival times could be staggered. Or sit at different tables. Or use the Seven Stars. Or the Lemon. The fact is we rarely get more than a handful turn up for a pub ride these days. 😃🚴🏽🍺🍷🍹🚴🏽🤪
Hi all, I'm part of a research project on cycling infrastructure in Falmouth and Penryn. If you live in/regularly visit Falmouth & Penryn via any means of transport we'd like to hear from you! Please share your views on current cycling infrastructure through this short anonymous survey or feel free to ask any questions via the email address listed in the survey. Many thanks and happy cycling! Emily
Hi everyone and hope you're all well and got out on the bikes over the Easter weekend in the lovely weather- I was asked by Phil Samuels to write a reminder to you all to join Cycling UK if not members already as it gives you Bike and personal accident insurance as well as third party liability , legal help and retail discounts and six great cycling magazines ! I used my cover when involved in a collision in 2014 and Slater Gordon - a top law firm - handled my case superbly and made the whole experience stress free - I was able to recoup my lost earnings as well as receiving compensation for my injuries. I highly recommend joining at a cost of £48 adult membership or £75 joint per year. It makes you feel safer when out on the roads and I also belong to ETA ( The Ethical Choice ) bike rescue for £24 a year in case of mechanical failure!! Happy cycling Paula
Thank you all for the beautiful flowers I received today. It's been reassuring for me having you there and helping Steve and myself while I was away with Mum. All the messages have been really supportive for me. It's not just about cycling (and beer!) Looking forward to getting back with the groups cycling.
I hear that Richard753 has been in the wars again, although he escaped with only bruised ear lobes. The driver of an Electric Toyota attempted to over take him at a far too narrow point along the road from Devoran to Point. Far from apologising she suggested that Richard was in her way. Seems that road is jinxed for him.

The road from Point to Devoran is becoming my nemesis, Badly bitten by a dog along there last Friday! Had to get medical aid which is ongoing so not riding at the moment, po!ice involved etc, so take care along there! R753
HNY to all Wheelers, Only cycling solo for now as riding in a group inadvisable! Just doing frequent 20ish miles at a time,looking forward to better times? R753
