Fake Nudes (The pube ride report)

Having been displaced from my self imposed role as Senior OGIL Ride correspondent I am forced to report on the other ride that takes place on Wednesdays, at least during the summer. It’s a bit like, after a life writing for the Times, being asked to put finger to keyboard for the Falmouth Packet. Still, what else is one to do on a Wednesday eve, other than to clean the bike and polish one’s helmet? The pub rides start at […] Read More

Straight on or right?

As we chatted under leaden skies at Union Corner, we tried to identify the rider approaching at some speed.  It looks like Clive.  Gosh it is Clive – on his own.  After joking that he had probably dropped Kath on the climb, lo and behold here appeared Kath some 20 seconds adrift.  Initial thoughts about EPO were dispelled when we realised Clive was aboard his gleaming new e-bike, resplendent with retro bar-mounted bottle and kickstand.  Looks like we will have […] Read More

TOTALLY FOURPHILLED

Big turn out this week – including all four Phils, recent aspiring cyclist Tania (who’s training for Ride London) and Dave who was back after last week for more of the same! Victor said that Perranuthnoe was the destination and most present seemed keen to go. Beth and Matt fancied a longer ride and joined Phil B, Ian, Amanda and myself heading to Mevagissey. We followed the usual route to the Norway Inn then misery for quite a few miles […] Read More

Site Maintenance

Tomorrow afternoon/evening I will be performing some long overdue maintenance to the site. During this time the website will be unavailable. It should only be for about 20-30 minutes as long as everything goes ok. If not it might be longer. Before I start the updates I will be performing a full back-up which will put strain on the server whilst everything downloads so it might be a bit slower to load before the update.

E, that was a good ride

It was a passing visit to Electric Pete’s bike shop on Commercial Road, Penryn that prompted Clive to take up the offer to try out Pete’s pride and joy, his Red Shiny e bike on the next OGIL ride. So, it was Clive, myself, Phil 1,Colin,Adrian, Ian and Nigel also on his e bike that met at Union Corner. In the currently bone dry other place were just 3 others, Phil 3, Mr Happy and Mike.  Amanda had posted an […] Read More

Victor Ladorum

What about Mullion, said Victor, No one objected, now he said ‘how do we get there’?, After a brief discussion with the group intending to go to Roskillys, we decided to all head to Gweek together and then break away. As we got to Gweek it was decided, to all go to Mullion, Cafe at the Chocolate Shop.  Vic should know the way there, he goes every year just before Christmas to buy me a large box of their chocs, […] Read More

Yo-Yo ride to Hell’s Mouth

With surprisingly little Whatsapp chatter beforehand, it was therefore a bit disappointing that only eleven of us congregated at the Halvasso turn for the traditional discussion about destination.  Dean had given his excuse for not joining us, which seemed to involve him being in training for a dentist’s appointment next week.  His subsequent request for care home suggestions was reinforced by his use of a dentist joke that it is believed first surfaced in music hall sometime in the century […] Read More

Pathfinder News update

Due to unforeseen circumstances we are not able to hold a Pathfinder on Sunday July 14th as advertised. Is there anyone who is able to step in to help with a Pathfinder for either this coming Sunday or the 21st or 28th July please. If so please post the time and venue on the Website or post an event on facebook. Many thanks, Kath

Going down Poldhu Hill, coming up.

What a glorious day to go OGILing; not a cloud in the sky and warm from the start. I expected a good turn out and was not disappointed, 12 in total. Adrian, Martyn, Paul, Phil1, Nigel, Ian, myself and Georgie from Union Corner, well outnumbering those waiting at Halvasso turn; Simon, Phil3, Keith and Andrew. It was a toss up, Poldhu or the Jam Pot and Poldhu won, but with a little twist to the route. Down to Gweek, via […] Read More
