Audax Kernow Jerseys – Please order now

Thanks to those who registered your interest. I will be putting in the order for the custom jerseys shortly. On  current lead times the jerseys should be available during April. A couple of updates:

  • We will be able to offer a long-sleeved version as well as the short-sleeved styles – full list updated below.
  • We’ve extended the availability of the jersey to Kernow and Southwest 600 riders, in addition to AUK members who have ridden at least one of the Audax Kernow organisers’ rides.

To preorder a jersey, please send details of the jersey(s) you want to buy (size and style), with a cheque for £25 deposit payable to Audax Kernow, to
Sundown, Kersey Road, Flushing, Falmouth TR11 5TR.

Alternatively email us using this link and I will provide bank details for payment by bank transfer.

Jersey details

The jerseys have a strong Cornish theme and are designed to give excellent visibility as you can see from the photos – you will definitely stand out in the crowd.

Some people may also be thinking about the non-local event of the year – London-Edinburgh-London. If you have been an Audax UK member from 25 March 2015, or if you have a guaranteed place, you can enter online from Friday 6th January. Entry is open to everyone else from 20th January.

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

4 December, 2016
Starting from Caharrack
Organiser Eddie Angell

eds2016checkin

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.

eds2016simonThe return, as far as the tandem was concerned, was a bit more leisurely to allow for digestion as well as a long climb into a headwind.

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.

A belated post to add the links to the results for these events.

Congratulations to all the riders, especially those who took on the 2016 Many Rivers to Cross route, which offered extra explorations of Bodmin Moor due to the A30 crossing closures.
