7 Bikes left Hendra at 11.00 & headed for St Ives, rode through the Busy town & then along the B3306 to St Just National Trust Carpark, where we had refreshments & enjoyed the Views. On the way back we diverted through Portreath, St Agnes & Perranporth (where the Nuddy Beach is 😉) filled up at Morrisons when we got back at 15.00.

Thanks to Pete for the Heads Up-re the B3306
Thanks to Keith for Tail Ending, hope everybody enjoyed the Ride Out.

Wed 9/6/21 11.00-14.30
Hendra-Padstow

10 Bikes left the site at 11.00, we rode past Newquay Airport & it seemed ok, with a few Police around & the odd closed road for the G7 DFA Summit, then followed the B3276/Coast Road, through some lovely villages & scenic beaches to Padstow.
Parked up for an hour on the Harbour Front, had a Wander About & some Nosh, then came back via the same route, except the Old Bill decided to have some fun by closing the main road A30 around the Airport, we had to U Turn along with all the cars & find another way round, that’s when the Fun Started.
I reset the destination on the Satnav & we ended going down (basically) a Cart Track, complete with Slippery Ford, then wound our way through the lanes until we got near Indian Queens & back on main roads to Hendra.
Thanks to Keith for Tail
ending.

Friday 11/6/21 11.00-14.00
Hendra to Charlestown Harbour.
(Sub titled-The Lost Key Incident 😉)

https://goo.gl/maps/V6KKuFVPbJQ3BMPk6

12 Bikes left site at 11.00, nice steady ride through the lanes & some main roads to St Austel-Charlestown Harbour.

A few of us parked in the free motorcycle bay but 7 couldn’t & had to park in 2 bays, paying £1.50 each, we need to find out the parking rules for M/Cs-do you pay for each bike or each bay ?

Had an hour for refreshments & returned to the Bikes to get ready to leave, however one of us lost his padlock key 🙄 (no names-CHRIS) Lorraine went off in a vain search for it, retracing their steps, to no avail, it was decided that the rest of us should go back to site as there was nothing we could do, but we’re like the Military -‘leave no one behind’ & we waited patiently until Lorraine returned. She double checked Chris’s many pockets Low & Behold-She found them 🤪
So after a short delay we headed back to site, diverting on the way due to road closures, we’ll be glad when this B/S G7 finishes.

Mon 14/6/21 11.00-14.00
Hendra-Looe

7 Bikes went out on a Medium to Fast Ride to Looe, using main roads, duel carriageways & some lovely picturesque lanes, running alongside the River. We parked up outside Martin’s Dairy (Great Name for a Pasty Shop 🥟) & wandered down to the beach for an hour, before heading back to Hendra.
Nice little Hoon.

Thanks to Little Graham & Little Ann for suggesting this one.

11 Bikes left at 11.00 Bobbled along the coast to Perranporth & St Agnes, popped into Chapel Porth for a looksee👀 then onto the Strawberry Farm where some of us Picked (& ate) a few, spent a good hour getting refreshed then we rode to Godrevy Car Park on the Wild Atlantic Coast, right opposite St Ives, spent 10 minutes admiring the lovely Views.
Then we just ambled back along the coast to Hendra.

Teenie Weenie Ride Out.

10 Bikes went out for a Little Ride about, round the local Beauty Spots, we headed to Crantock Beach Carpark but it was exceptionally busy so we just turned round in the Bowgie Inn & tried to get some refreshments, but with all the Flipple Flapple of downloading Apps etc we decided to take our custom elsewhere & went to Holywell Bay, where, what I thought was a Masked Mad Woman 🤪 (Pam Monk) flagged us down outside the Treguth Pub where we stopped for refreshment. Then most of us came back to site & a few went on to Perranporth (Nuddy Beach ☺️)
