(We had pencilled in Gawton this week, but HSD has been closed for refurbishment so we’ll head over there in a month or two.) So, back to the club favourite! A run through Wheal Busy, Unity Woods, through the Poldice valley taking in Mars, Ridgeracer, Down to Brown and back again. Lots of great flowing lines, some steepness and some serious technical riding if you fancy pushing yourself.

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.
24th December – No club ride this weekend as we’ll be busy wrapping presents and basting turkeys.
31st December – No club ride this weekend as we’ll be busy doing New Year’s Eve stuff (drinking).

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!
