Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all Cornwall cyclists!

Time to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a safe and happy 2018 – with all the cycle adventures you hope for.

We hope you can join us for our family seasonal ride along the Camel Trail to Padstow.   All welcome – and all ages.  Meet 10 am Saturday 30th December, Borough Arms car park, Dunmere (PL31 2RD).  Cafe stop en route at Wadebridge Co-op, PL27 7DA.  At Padstow, we normally have a bit of a walk  around the harbour and have lunch before cycling back.

Ride is approximately 11 miles each way – but obviously, if this is too far, it is possible to cycle back from the coffee stop. Hybrid or mountain bikes are probably most suitable for the Camel Trail but road bikes OK too.

Further info from ride leader, David:  07718 483875

We hope to see you there!
