Fulsome congratulations and thanks have been coming in from all quarters to new Audax organiser Trevor Stephens who ably took on the Devoran events this year. The cheery welcome, the repartee at Gwithian, the rhubarb crumble at the arrivée and of course the weather have all been noted and enjoyed.
There was a good turn out on all the events, including riders new to Audax, the usual local suspects and a few AUKs from further afield.
Results on the Audax UK site; see links below.

All sunshine and smiles for the Falmouth Wheelers events on Sunday.

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 arivée, 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.
Provisional results lists now on the Audax UK site; see links below.
Very belatedly, here are the links to results for the October Celtic Coastal and Celtic Canter events and Ed’s Mince Pie and Mulled Wine event in December.
Both events went ahead very enjoyably despite unforeseen problems – so special thanks to organisers who (re)organised, riders who turned out despite poor weather forecasts, cake makers and tea pourers all.

Starting from Carharrack Organiser Simon Jones
A longstanding and popular Cornish randonnée in dual format – a 67km route on the tarmac for the roadies, and a 66km parallel off-road route for the mountain bikers, which is 90% off-road and has some technical bits. Both trace the now scenic industrial landscape of the Copper Kingdom and the Great Flat Lode, returning to the Carharrack hall twice with the option of enjoying a pasty lunch and a cream tea.
