Here’s hoping the forecasters have got it right, and Audax Kernow’s second date of the season is as warm and sunny as last month’s rides from Falmouth.
On-line entries are now closed, but you can still enter on the day – come early and enjoy a cuppa before you set off.
See you there.

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.
Provisional results lists now on the Audax UK site; see links below.
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.
…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.
