Spring finally arrived, leaving some riders feeling a little overdressed but no doubt relieved not to negotiate the torrential rain, gales and snow we’ve had to put up with this winter.

With blue skies, calm creeks and sheltered lanes on the routes, and sausage-in-a-bun added to the usual feast of delights back at the Cricket Club arivĂ©e, the mood was upbeat and the thanks profuse – to Phil Conroy the organizer, cooks and kitchen helpers, and of course the weather gods.

See the Falmouth Wheelers website for more photos.

Falmouth Events 3rd April 2016

Riders on Audax April 2016The Falmouth events started in dreary wet and windy conditions but the weather gods relented and we saw plenty of sunshine, even if the descent to Porthleven required a bit more pedalling that we’ve come to expect!

There is now a full gallery of photos from the events on the Falmouth Wheelers’ website. Links to the lists of finishers below. If anyone would like to send me a report on “how it was for them” I’d be glad to put it here on the site – would be great to have some impressions from those new to Audax.

Thanks to Phil for organising, helpers for helping, and cake and sandwich makers for the scrummy refreshments – everything well up to the standards we’ve come to expect!
