Bernie’s Blog – 19 miles!

By Clare|April 4, 2017|Uncategorized|0 comments

Bit the bullet and went for a longer ride. The shorts got an airing as I went for a spin around Falmouth and Penryn.   Mostly downhill to Falmouth from home which is great, then a little nip up past Penryn Rugby club and breezed through Penryn, along Ponsarden then up to the High Street from Greenbank. It was there that a guy decided to bump start his little van. I'm no

Real super Heroes don’t wear capes! I have been cycling to work most days at the moment and even on the windiest days I have been giving it my all.  However I hit upon a snag the other day.

Bernie’s Blog – The Hat

By Clare|February 1, 2017|Uncategorized|0 comments

The Hat I managed a whole week of cycling to work, the weather conditions were just right.  I wear normal clothes for my commute as it is a faff to change out of the lycra.

So finely honed are her skills that she didn't even need me to complete a test.  I probably
