Devoran Events 12 May 2019

Another bit of luck with the weather, with all the riders enjoying a cool-ish but very sunny day.

First off were the Lizard and the Camel riders, on a slightly modified route (due to knee-deep chippings at White Cross) which took the recommended route distance up to 212km.

A very good field this year, including club groups from One and All Cycling and Wadebridge Coasters CC. Special kudos to the latter for virtually passing their collective front doors at well over half way before starting the return leg. There are some excellent pictures of their day on Facebook here and here.

The 110km Red River Blue Sea event was off next at 9:00. The route is a figure of eight giving the riders a scenic loop around West Penwith, and two bites of the cherry (or what you fancy) at Gwithian.

Finally the 56km Peter’s Point riders set off for a round trip to the Gwithian control. There was a good mix of riders of all ages, including several on electric bikes.

A few more pictures from the Départ here.

The first riders on the short route started to arrive back around lunchtime, soon interspersed with the fastest on the 100km route. The Randoneurs started to return in the early evening with everyone through by about half past seven – some relieved, some triumphant and all in very good spirits.

Congratulations to everyone who took part and made it such a pleasant day all round, and special thanks from the organiser to all the helpers on the day.

Penzance Easter Sunday 2019

These events have a bit of a reputation for extreme weather adding to the challenge of the routes, but this year’s glorious April sunshine must redress the balance!

Audax events in 2019

Audax Kernow events for 2019 are all now calendared, and I have updated the information on this site. As usual I’ve also included links for forthcoming events in Devon. If you are interested in travelling further afield, check out the complete calendar on the new AUK site. The full web site is under construction, but if you are new to Audax or have questions about what it is or how it works this is the place to find out more.

Apple Tree Cafe Control SignYou can now download a PDF flyer to publicise the first Audax Kernow events of the year in April (Falmouth and Penzance events) and May (Devoran). There’ll be an update available next month to include the Mines and Mineral Railways events and the Celtic Coastal and Celtic Canter events starting from Wall. The Wall events are running earlier this year, on 29th September rather than in October, which conveniently brings them into the AUK 2019 season too.

The poster is going up in number of Cornish bike shops, cafés and other places frequented by cyclists. If you know of a venue that we’ve missed, or would like a laminated copy to display in another good location, please let us know.
