Mines and Mineral Railways ON-road and OFF-road

6 July, 2014 from Carharrack Organiser Simon Jones

We had a total of 55 starters for the two events, more for the off-road, including 16 women. The youngest rider was a girl of 13 and in the offroad a lad of 14. The weather was fine and a bit cooler than last year. We had to do a bit a hedgetrimming to clear undergrowth along the offroad route but there were still signs of bloody arms and legs on the offroaders from
“bramble rash” but this was all taken in good spirit by the time they tucked into their jam and scones at the finish.

One rider emailed “Can I just say what an amazing day I had yesterday,
what a great event! I will definitely be there again next year! Thanks”.

Thanks to the riders who participated and raised a modest sum for Cornwall Hospice Care.
