Audax Kernow 2023 Season

A belated round-up of the events of 2023 and links to results.

After starting our season with the Falmouth events on the 2nd of April, next up were the 50km, 100km and 200km events from Perranwell on the 21st of May. All three rides were well supported and the weather was kind. Some nice photos of the Lizard and the Camel 200km from St Austell Wheelers and of Peter’s Point 50km from Newquay Cycling

The Mines and Mineral Railways on- and off-road events followed on the 18th of June, and again we were lucky with the weather. Pasties and cream teas went down well, and the off-roaders were no muddier than usual.

The final events of the season were the 200km and 300km events from Penzance on the 25th June. There was just one rider on the challenging Many Rivers to Cross 300km event, and although it was not run as a Paris-Brest-Paris qualifier this year, it nevertheless preserves its record: so far, every PBP entrant who’s completed this ride has also completed their PBP. Lucy Bufton finished both with little time to spare, and her account of her Many Rivers to Cross ride appears in the Winter 2023 edition of Arrivée, the AUK magazine.

The Audax UK site lists the validated finishers – links below. E-bike riders are not included in the official lists, but were welcome on all the Brevet Populaire rides and deserve full credit for meeting the different challenges involved.

Mines and Mineral Railways ON-road and OFF-road

Sunday 18th June 2023
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.
