Lovely riding across the moor from Minions, this time with some of Andy’s variations. We’ll be taking in Rocky Road, Amy’s Camel Humps, the main mast descent and plenty of general hooning. Always great riding and great terrain.

Des and Julie's loop through Malpas and along to Idless woods. Cross country and twisty woodland descents. Des is calling this his 'End of a Decade' ride as it's his birthday around now, so back to Des and Julie's for refreshements, and a BBQ if the weather is good!

One of Robbie’s excellent rides. This one is an XC loop out of Redruth heading through Treskerby, Unity and Trevarth woodlands via Mount Hawke. There’ll be some cool descents, techy bits, a couple of jumps, and a café stop. Hopefully a few pleasant surprises!

16th June (Saturday) 09:30, Location – Grogley Bishops Hustyns, Grade 5, Distance 14ish miles

Ride Setter – Ben

Ride Leader – Ben

 

Time for a summer GBH session. We’ll hit the gnarly woodland trails at Groggers, and depending on what Ben wants to do maybe charge through Rabbit Run and Wizard’s Stick or just keep sessioning. It’s steep and rooty but should be running sweet now it’s summer! Sure to be awesome. Saturday.

Ride Setter – James

Ride Leader - Andy

 

The return of James and Andy’s XC ride starting down the back of Redruth. We will tour the sights of Tolvaddon, past a couple of sewage farms, past the famous reindeer, up the Red River, and through various other exciting places. Mostly bridleways and easy singletrack, a good leg spinner.

1st July (Sunday) 09:30, Location – Penwith, Grade 3, Distance 25ish miles

Ride Setter - Les

Ride Leader –

 

It has been a long time since we have been around Penwith! Les is going to lead us on a ride based on one of Eric’s loops. Starting at Wheal Ding Dong we’ll head across the moors up to the north coast, with cracking riding along the coast all the way past Cape Cornwall. Expect plenty of climbing, lovely views, a spot of cake, some tight twisty coast path to focus the mind, and generally great riding.
