The usual tracks in King’s Wood plus an excursion to little Polgooth, Levalsa and possibly stopping for coffee and cake in Mevagissey. Total distance will be 20ish miles but we’ll do the Kings and Levalsa bit first so you can bail at around the 12mile point if you need to. Ride will be mostly XC with some steep stuff in King’s Wood.

Andy and James’s XC ride starting down the back of Redruth. They will take us on some sights near Tolvaddon, couple of sewage farms, past reindeers, up the Red River, and various other exciting places. Andy promises this will not be an epic! It is mostly bridleways and easy singletrack, a good leg spin.

Falmouth ride is a mix of things with stretches of coast, riding across town, some woods, and a couple of other bits and pieces. Steep slippery rooty sections, flights of steps, busy narrow paths and some technical slow speed riding. Some lovely hills and some lovely views. This ride is 9am pedals down.

Ben’s Callington and surrounding area XC ride. It has been a while since we’ve been up here so expect some great riding out of Callington, up Kit Hill and around the Tamar valley down to Cotehele Quay.

3rd December (Sunday), Location – Gawton

 

Club Gawton session. We’re heading back to Devon for some relentless downhilling! You’ll need to book your own uplift. There are a maximum of sixteen places on the uplift bus so make sure you do it in good time before it sells out for the day. You can also ride up each time but that’s quite a bit more effort, and anyway the bus is more fun. HSD and Proper Job for flat-out shredding, and Super Tavi and Egypt if you’re feeling hardcore!

The morning after the night before! A bit of tired, mildly hungover wood bashing at Idless. No broken bones this year Des! Short steep ups and techy little downs. Plenty of roots and gloopy mud almost guaranteed. 10am start.

Des and James’s Christmas week social night ride adventure through Unity woods and around a few gentler areas of Poldice valley, followed by a baguette for a few quid per head and chips and a beer afterwards at the Fox and Hounds Scorrier. Des will need numbers in advance so he can let the pub know, look out for a post on the Facebook page near the time. This is a night ride so you’ll need suitable lights.

Good fun riding round here as a club. Meet in the Cardinham carpark and ride up the road to Lanhydrock for a lap of everything, including a bit of racing down the doubletrack. Then roll back down to Cardinham for a lap before grabbing a cake in the café. Start off the year with some groomed trails and lovely manicured berms!
