Another Season Rolls On

The Celtic Coastal and Celtic Canter events from Wall wrapped up the Audax UK 2019 season nicely. Numbers were down a bit, probably due to the truly horrible weather the day before and the forecast light rain and strong winds. There may have been a little weather trepidation at the Départ but Chris Rayne’s parting shot of “it will be sunny later” certainly proved correct, even if early climbs took us up into the clouds. Winds never seemed quite from the direction expected as the road and the eddies turned back and forth along the cliffs and lanes, and riders enjoyed an exhilarating mix of headwind, cross wind and going well, along with some spectacular seascapes. Back at the Arrivée we were well rewarded with hot soup, sandwiches and cakes – many thanks to Chris and Liz for organizing and feeding us, and helpers Trevor and Simon at Wall and Peter (and Max) at The Apple Tree. Results are on the AUK site – linked and summarised below.

If you rode one of the Wall events paying the £3 insurance supplement for non-members you can take advantage of an offer from AUK membership to deduct £3 from your joining fee. More details are in the flyer here, or on the AUK site.

Don’t forget that in addition to the AUK membership benefits, if you’ve ridden one of the Audax Kernow events AUK membership also qualifies you to purchase an Audax Kernow jersey. Details of the jersey are in this post – we currently have a S, M, L and XL in the full zip short sleeve version, plus a limited selection of the long sleeved and 3/4 zip variants.  Email us using this link if you are interested.

Last Audax Kenow events this year – September 29th

Don’t miss the chance to ride a last Audax this season. The Celtic Canter and Celtic Coastal events are running at the end of September this year – just nipping into the 2019 Audax UK calendar year.

These events start from the Methodist Hall at Wall, near Carnhell Green, and offer a choice of 60km or 100km scenic routes in the far West. Always an enjoyable and exciting ride whatever the weather, with welcoming refreshments at the finish.

Click on the thumbnails below for more information about the routes. If you enter in advance via the AUK site (follow these links: Celtic Canter and Celtic Coastal), you’ll be sent a GPX file as well as a route sheet. Or roll up on the day in good time to enter on the line.

Best laid plans

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.
