Mines and Mineral Railways ON-road and OFF-road

25 June, 2017
Starting from Carharrack
Organiser Simon Jones

This popular Cornish randonnĂ©e is now in its 22nd edition in its familiar 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.

Order your choice of pasty and either rice pudding or scone with cream and jam by entering online at ukcyclist.co.uk/audax-events/61-mines-and-mineral-railways-2017 0r follow the instructions on the Audax UK site from the links below.

Lizard and the Camel

16 July, 2017
Starting from Devoran
Organiser Martyn Aldis

210km event from Devoran village hall, planned with the first-time randonneur in mind.

The route provides more modest ascent than other 200s run in Cornwall but it is scenic in the literal sense. The Camel Trail is used for a 21km section but this can be avoided on supplied all-tarmac alternative. Controls at Lizard Village, Gwithian and Padstow, plus 2 information controls.

Tea or coffee at the start and free refreshments at the finish.
