Eleven riders  pedalled along lovely country lanes to Luxulyan and on to Eden where we ate our sandwiches in the sunshine near the ticketing office. Returning to Lanhydrock via back lanes around luxulyan and Breney Common. The weather was perfect, for a lovely day which we all thoroughly Enjoyed.


Update 18th JANUARY 2017

Old Cranks Cycling Group Ride Wednesday 18th January
Golitha Falls and Jamaica Inn

January 18th the Old Cranks met at St Cleer Memorial Hall (thank’s St Cleer for allowing us to park our cars.)

From here we cycled to Golitha Falls and on to the Jamaica Inn for lunch. The road runs along the side of the River Fowey pretty much most of the way.  It’s a lovely road for cycling but the wearing of high viz jackets is essential to alert any other traffic.

We had lunch on the picnic tables outside the Inn which were bathed in winter sunshine in such such a nice part of Cornwall.

After lunch I asked a very nice customer if he would be so kind as to take a group photo of the Old Cranks. He even put his lunch on hold to oblige and I have to say that he takes better photos than I do!

After the photographic session we returned to our cars and the completion of our eighteen mile ride.

Don’t forget if you have a bike and transport - then the Old Cranks could be just what you are looking for.

Update 1 JANUARY 2017

Old Cranks Cycling Group Ride Wednesday 18th January

Happy New Year

I hope that you have had a good Christmas Break and are now
looking forward to a bit of exercise in January.

So our ride will be on Wednesday 18th. Meet at 10.30, St Cleer
Memorial Hall Car Park (we have permission) it’s off Well Lane
PL14 5EA.

From here we will cycle towards Golitha Falls and along lower
Siblyback Road to Bolventor and Jamaica Inn for our lunch stop,
They may even have some Figgy Pudding left from Christmas.

We will go back the same way but may take a different route to
St Cleer.

The ride is 15 Miles on quiet roads with a nice long upward incline
to Bolventor but remember it’s downhill coming back.

There are picnic tables outside or you can frequent the hostelry.
I do hope that you can make this - our first ride of 2017.

p.s. I now have one good eye and am waiting for procedure on
the other - just hope it’s not the 18th January.

Can’t wait to see you all again - Brian

As ever please let me know if you can make it?
