Some Like it Hot

July saw the final events of the Audax Kernow 2022 calendar – links to the AUK results lists below.

The 200km and 300km events from Penzance on 3rd July offered plenty of climbing and other challenges. It was a surprisingly chilly start with some stiff winds despite the sun, but a glorious end to the day in the far West to reward the small band of hardy riders who took these on.

The following week things had hotted up and riders on the events from Perranwell on 10th July enjoyed – or suffered – wall-to-wall sunshine. Entrants included several people trying their first Audax or their first 200km, and also Geoff Sharpe from Devon, on his 300th Audax. Chapeaux all round.

If you’ve enjoyed riding local Audaxes you might want to consider joining Audax UK. Full details on the AUK site here. Note that you if you paid the non-member insurance of £3 for an Audax Kernow event you can have a one-off discount of £3 on your membership.

Lizard and the Camel

Sunday 10th July 2022
Starting from Perranwell Organiser Martyn Aldis

The event starts from the Perranwell Centre (also known as the Perran-ar-Worthal Village Memorial Hall).

The route has been planned with the first-time randonneur in mind. It 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 a rather lumpy all-tarmac alternative

Controls at Lizard Village, Gwithian and Padstow, plus 2 information controls.

Includes free refreshments at Perranwell and Gwithian, with shop and café opportunities at other controls and elsewhere on route.

No entries on the day – advance entry details on the Audax UK site.

Devoran Events 12 May 2019

Another bit of luck with the weather, with all the riders enjoying a cool-ish but very sunny day.

First off were the Lizard and the Camel riders, on a slightly modified route (due to knee-deep chippings at White Cross) which took the recommended route distance up to 212km.

A very good field this year, including club groups from One and All Cycling and Wadebridge Coasters CC. Special kudos to the latter for virtually passing their collective front doors at well over half way before starting the return leg. There are some excellent pictures of their day on Facebook here and here.

The 110km Red River Blue Sea event was off next at 9:00. The route is a figure of eight giving the riders a scenic loop around West Penwith, and two bites of the cherry (or what you fancy) at Gwithian.

Finally the 56km Peter’s Point riders set off for a round trip to the Gwithian control. There was a good mix of riders of all ages, including several on electric bikes.

A few more pictures from the Départ here.

The first riders on the short route started to arrive back around lunchtime, soon interspersed with the fastest on the 100km route. The Randoneurs started to return in the early evening with everyone through by about half past seven – some relieved, some triumphant and all in very good spirits.

Congratulations to everyone who took part and made it such a pleasant day all round, and special thanks from the organiser to all the helpers on the day.
