Category: Completed Events 2019

The Audax UK season runs from 1st October to the end of September, so the local 2019 season started with the Hall at Wall events in October.

If you complete an event within the time limits and with a valid Brevet you will be included in the number of riders finished and you will usually appear on the full AUK results list for the event. You can order cloth badges and metal medals for the standard distances, and Grimpeur medals for AAA points, online from the Audax UK website.

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 D├ępart 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!
