The St Erth vintage a bicycle ride will be held on the afternoon of Saturday, 31 August 2019 from 1330
A thoroughly jolly good day is to be had by one and all with a leisurely 4 1/2 mile ride, taking in the pleasures and surroundings of St Erth village and the riverbank, after which we will make our way towards Hayle with a short stop at the ‘Bird in Hand” in to wet the whistle.
From the Bird in Hand we route through Hayle via the historically industrious Foundary Hill and Lane, returning to St Erth via the causeway cycle path and Water Lane

The St Erth vintage bicycle ride will commence at approximately 15:00 hours (hopefully earlier pending completion of registration) with all riders returning to the Star Inn at approximately 17:00 hours, shortly after we will be class judging and awarding of the prestigious GOLDEN pedals Yrophies’.
Please note those participating with young children are recommended to onlyride the shorter 1/2 loop from the old school room to Green Lane then on to the riverbank and back to the old school rooms, this ride is approximately 30 minutes and without incline other parents/guardians must exercise extreme caution while riding along the river bank to avoid any unplanned watery interactions, the main group will then proceed to Hayle and should be returning between approximately 1 1/2 hours later around 17:00 hours.
At the Old School Rooms we will host a bar with home-cooked food from approximately 17:00 hours and live music, so a great opportunity to admire the selection of vintage bicycles and attire whilst wetting the whistle and swapping stories of the days heroic engurance ride.
If the weather is forecast to be rather inclement then the ride will be cancelled so please check back or call on the day.
