Falmouth Audax Events 8th April 2018

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.

Best laid plans

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.

Mines and Mineral Railways ON-road and OFF-road

Sunday 1st July 2018
Starting from Carharrack

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.

Many Rivers to Cross

Sunday 10th June 2018
Starting from Penzance
Organiser Martyn Aldis

306km Brevet de Randonneur. A very substantial day out for the well‐prepared and self‐reliant randonneur. Crosses the rivers Fal, Fowey and Camel by ferries and bridges, large and small.

This is a return of the 2010 Many Rivers route after the lengthy disruptions caused by the A30 dualling works. Slight modifications give an extra sea vista above Porthscatho and an easier crossing of the A30 taking advantage of the new overbridge.

Note that this is an “X-rated” event, which means there are no manned controls or specific facilities. You attach commercial or ATM receipts to your brevet card for timed controls, and post it to the organiser after the event. No on-the-line entries.
