A First 200 in Cornwall

LizardAndCamelRouteUnder one of the lesser known rules of AUK, an event organizer and helpers involved on the day are entitled to ride a calendar event in the two weeks before the date of the event itself.  Thus it was that we set off yesterday to route check the Lizard and the Camel, and hopefully have a good day out in the May sunshine.

Many Rivers to Cross

5 June, 2016
Starting from Penzance
Organiser Martyn Aldis

309km Brevet Randoneur, this year running in June.

A very substantial day out for the well‐prepared and self‐reliant randonneur. Crosses the rivers Fal, Fowey and Camel by ferries and bridges, large and small.

The route has been updated taking out the visit to Lizard village and looping east of Bodmin Moor.  The start is half an hour later in order not to arrive too early for the King Harry Ferry via the new route. Update has been forced by delays to A30 overbridge construction but the resulting route should be a treat.

Note that this is an “X-rated” event, which means there are no manned controls or specific facilities. You attach commercial or ATM receipts to your brevet card for timed controls, and post it to the organiser after the event. No on-the-line entries.

Lizard and the Camel

15 May, 2016
Starting from Devoran
Organiser Martyn Aldis

A new 200km Brevet Randoneur from Devoran village hall.

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 Towans and Padstow, plus 2 information controls.

Tea or coffee at the start and free refreshments at the finish, with shop and café stop opportunities at controls and elsewhere on route.
