Cycle Friendly Stretch Session
Our ride out to the beautiful Lime House yoga studio for some specific cycle friendly stretching is on Sunday 26th February.  We will have 3 rides leaving from Truro out to the studio which is situated near Perranporth.  Graham leads a club ride at 8.00, Melinda is leading an intermediate ride (around 11 mph), and Jonathan is taking a shorter leisure ride, both starting at 8.50.  The aim is to all arrive at Lime House at the same time – 10.15 ready to start our stretching class at 10.30.  We would have approximately an hour’s class, followed by delicious home-made cakes and coffee, then ride back to Truro feeling nicely stretched!  The cost for the session and refreshments is £10 pp.  (There is also an option just to have coffee and cake and pay accordingly).  Please bring cash/card on the day.  Sign up for the rides in the usual way on the Ride Hub.  Then email Melinda to let her know if you are taking part in the class, or just having coffee/cake. 

TCC Library

Have you discovered our lending library yet?  Look for the library tab on the Ride Hub.  Here you will find a wonderful selection of bike related books to read.  Just click on the borrow button for a book, and the owner should contact you to arrange to pick it up.  You can also list any books you would like to add to the library.

Brittany Trip

There are only a couple of spaces left for the French trip.  Lots of opportunities to discover the joys of riding in the beautiful Brittany countryside.  Chris has now booked accommodation in central Morlaix from 25th to 29th May.  This is a self catering gîte d'étape with secure bike storage
These trips have been very well received in the past, so please let Chris know if you’re interested in joining.

Club Kit

We have some of our Santini kit in stock including various sizes of gilets, ladies’ jerseys (both short and long sleeved), and one medium men’s jersey (short sleeved).  First come, first served!  There are also plenty of bidons (water bottles), socks and caps, and a few neck warmers.  Please contact Jane to purchase any of these.  I’m happy to bring along to a Sunday ride, or you can collect from Barton Meadow.

PHOTO SHOOT  28th – 31st March 2023
Do you want to be the new face of GRVL for 2023?
GRVL is a premium gravel specific cyclewear brand that launched in November 2022.  They are planning on shooting a new campaign in Cornwall on the dates above and they are looking for “medium” male riders to feature in their shoot.  The location is yet to be confirmed, but they plan to shoot on the Cornish Alps and around the Padstow area, along the coastal path and on the beach on one of the evenings.
They are looking for Male riders, aged between 20-60. The riders must be medium in size (38” chest and 30-32” waist) or wear traditional medium cycle kit.   They will shoot across all of the above dates, however you don’t need to be available for ALL of these or even ALL day. The best time to shoot is Sunrise and dusk so this might fit riders that work a typical 9-5.  They are looking for riders that are available for a minimum of 3-4 hours on 1 or more of the dates above.   Bikes, shoes and helmets would be provided and you don’t need to be a gravel rider to partake as the amount of technical riding that will be done will be very limited.  Travel expenses will be covered along with some free GRVL kit. The amount of kit would depend on your availability/time you can commit to.
If you are interested, please submit at least 3 photos, preferably 1 on the bike and several off the bike, along with confirmation of your size to the following email
Please submit the following details by no later than 1st March:
Name?  Address?  Size?  Date/s most suitable?  Time/s most suitable?  How long can you ride/model for?   Have you attached at least 3 photos?
