Evening rides

Thanks to Tom Round for once again arranging our evening rides. 
Routes are previewed on Whatsapp/Strava so you'll know if It’s going to be either mid-week mayhem in clay country or a more leisurely trip through the lanes around Truro - but always with one or two hills to test your legs.
You can join Tom and the pack on Wednesdays leaving from Lemon Quay at 7 p.m. (NB: Bike lights recommended) 

Webmaster Needed

We would like someone to take on looking after our new website, which is nearly ready to launch. If you’d be interested please get in touch

Vintage Bikes

Message from David Hignett (Penzance) “I have two vintage bikes which I am selling as I no longer ride them and I wondered if anyone in your club might be interested.  One is a Dawes Galaxy from 1995, £200. 57 cm. Racing Green metallic. Mostly original (inc Brooks B17 saddle) but upgraded to Campag Ergopower bar shifters and hand-built wheels. Very good condition, original paint with just a few scratches. Original Owner's Manual available.  The other is a Gitane Tour de L'Avenir pre-1980, £250. 56 cm. Frame green/black. In very good condition. Bike was in storage 1980-2009. Mostly original equipment, Sachs-Huret Classic 2500 gears, 7 x 2. New Alhonga brakes, front wheel Mavic CPX 33 on Shimano Ultegra hub, tyres Gatorskin unused.  Both in very good condition”.
