…the office desk and the bed. Yes, tracking LEL riders has been hard work for me, with a real shock about how long the event seems to go on when also trying to do a bit of normal life as well. I hope we’ll have a report from a rider at some point but in the meanwhile for anyone who hasn’t had tracking fever this week the bare bones are that in the 117 hours category Kevin from the far west finished with hours in hand but sadly Trevor from Helston had to abandon with an Achilles tendon problem after just a glimpse of Scotland. Robin from Mylor rode in the 100hr category and finished with a good buffer intact in spite of two long sleep stops. It’s quite possible he even had time to shave. One rider who certainly did not was Anco from the Netherlands who completed the 1440km event in about 63 hours.
Good luck to our Audax Kernow riders!
You can follow their progress via Rider Tracking on the London Edinburgh London website.

Thanks to those who registered your interest. I will be putting in the order for the custom jerseys shortly. On current lead times the jerseys should be available during April. A couple of updates:
- We will be able to offer a long-sleeved version as well as the short-sleeved styles – full list updated below.
- We’ve extended the availability of the jersey to Kernow and Southwest 600 riders, in addition to AUK members who have ridden at least one of the Audax Kernow organisers’ rides.
To preorder a jersey, please send details of the jersey(s) you want to buy (size and style), with a cheque for £25 deposit payable to Audax Kernow, to
Sundown, Kersey Road, Flushing, Falmouth TR11 5TR.
Alternatively email us using this link and I will provide bank details for payment by bank transfer.
The jerseys have a strong Cornish theme and are designed to give excellent visibility as you can see from the photos – you will definitely stand out in the crowd.
The types of jersey offered are from Endura’s Custom Classic and Women’s Fit collections as listed below – follow the links for full details.
These are good quality road-fit jerseys, made in Scotland. For sizing see the Endura size guide.

I have updated the site with details of local AUK events currently calendared for the first few months of the year – more to come soon as events are finalised.
Some people may also be thinking about the non-local event of the year – London-Edinburgh-London. If you have been an Audax UK member from 25 March 2015, or if you have a guaranteed place, you can enter online from Friday 6th January. Entry is open to everyone else from 20th January.
