Tag Archives: Four Hundreds 200

Looking forward

Two Audax Kernow events for April are now on the AUK Calendar.

The Falmouth Wheelers’ Cornish 100 and Bunny Hop rides will run on 14th April – a week before Easter this year, as Easter is so late.

The Penzance X-rated 200km and 300km events will run on the 21st – Easter Sunday. As 2019 is a Paris-Brest-Paris year they are running as BRM (Brevet de Randonneur Mondial) events and can be used as part of a PBP qualifying series.

I’ll be updating our own calender and Facebook page with these events sometime later this year, with others as they are calendared.

No Ed’s Mince Pie and Mulled Wine Audax this December to look forward to I’m afraid, but many years of a very special ride to look back on and celebrate. As far as I can ascertain, this ride started in December 2007, running first from Connor Downs before moving more recently to Carharrack,  and only missed one year (due to icy weather in 2011) in those 11 years. I’m sure everyone who has ever taken part will want to thank Eddie Angell and Wendy Wallis for all their past efforts and successes in warming parts other rides don’t reach.

Four Hundreds 200

Sunday 10th June 2018
Starting from Penzance
Organiser Martyn Aldis

A varied route visiting the four ancient Cornish ‘Hundreds’ of Penwith, Kerrier, Pydarshire and Powdershire.

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.

X-Rated Events, Penzance 5 June 2016

A belated post to add the links to the results for these events.

Congratulations to all the riders, especially those who took on the 2016 Many Rivers to Cross route, which offered extra explorations of Bodmin Moor due to the A30 crossing closures.

Easter BRMs from Penzance

5 April, 2015
Starting from Penzance
Organiser Martyn Aldis

The Many Rivers to Cross and Four Hundreds 200 X-rated events have something of a history of attrition. Gales, deluges, heatwaves and hills have produced a fair proportion of DNSs and DNFs over the years. This year looked promising, with good weather forecast and the PBP qualification timetable probably contributing to a reasonable start list for events of this type, but illness and logistics still managed to reduce the starters to a total of ten hardy locals and two “furriners”.

Chapeau to all those who took part in these challenging rides.
