Ed’s Mince Pie and Mulled Wine – 4 December 2016

Eddie’s ride is always a winter treat, and this year we were blessed with dry weather – and a keen wind to sharpen the appetite.

As usual, the ride was more or less fully booked. 77 riders made it to the start, and every one completed the ride with valid brevet – well done all of us!

Greed and good spirits tend to keep the pace lively on the way out to the control and this year we had the wind (mainly) helping us as well. We got a bit of buffeting on the tandem, so knew it would be essential to refuel well before the return.Higher Lanner Farm Control

As in previous years, huge thanks are due to Wendy for the warm welcome and legendary refreshments. The spread at the farm was imposing, varied and delicious as usual, with pasties, sausage rolls, scones and cakes all temptingly displayed. The collection for Parkinson’s raised £173.

A second welcome back at the arivée from Eddie and from the kitchen, where Simon and Liz were serving mulled wine and mince pies – a happy end to the event and a fitting start to the festive season.

Thanks to Eddie for once again organizing a splendid ride, and to helpers Peter Hansen, Simon Jones, Liz Rayne and of course Wendy Hayden.

Ed’s Mince Pie and Mulled Wine 2015

Starting from Carharrack

Falmouth Wheelers Ladies - damp but happy

Mizzle and drizzle, and a bit of a wind as well – but what did the riders care. ‘Tis the season to be jolly and very jolly we all were too on reaching the control. Wendy has moved to a new farmouse and the control had moved too (to the surprise of some old hands who failed to check their routesheets) but the spread was as magnificent as ever.  The long climb back was pleasantly wind-assisted, but some more serious rain and fog on the higher ground gave everyone a bit of a wetting – warming mulled wine and mince pies were just the job.

The event attracted riders from far and wide, including the CTC group from Liskeard – see the ride report here.

Many thanks from all the riders to Eddie, Wendy and all the helpers for a great start to the festive season.

Ed’s Mince Pie and Mulled Wine 2014

7 December, 2014
Starting from Carharrack
Organiser Eddie Angell
Ed’s ride proved as popular as ever, as the rain of early morning cleared away before the start, and riders set off hot foot towards the magnet of the Penventon Farm control. A warm welcome and a groaning table of pasties, sausage rolls, scones and a variety of cakes greeted us and tempted us to stay, but eventually that long haul back up to Black Rock must be faced and even enjoyed.

Back at the arrivée mince pies were warming and Thora had worked her magic on the cauldron of mulled wine. Most made it back without even catching a shower.

Many thanks from all the riders to Eddie, Wendy and all the helpers for a great start to the festive season.
