Paris Brest Paris Randonneur 2019

Congratulations to three new PBP “Anciens”. All three local riders who took part in the 19th edition of the Paris Brest Paris Randonneur – Kevin Talbot, Paul Nelson and Simon Evans – completed the ride this morning. As it happens, all three also included the 300km Many Rivers to Cross event back at Easter as part of their qualification series for the event.

Penzance Easter Sunday 2019

These events have a bit of a reputation for extreme weather adding to the challenge of the routes, but this year’s glorious April sunshine must redress the balance!

Many Rivers to Cross

Sunday 21st April 2019
Starting from Penzance
Organiser Martyn Aldis

306km Brevet de Randonneur. 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. A very rich variety of Cornish countryside, the extremes being the nearly flat downs of the Lizard and the heavily corrugated western flank of Bodmin Moor.

This is same route as 2018, brought back to the Easter weekend slot as a BRM to enable it to be used as a PBP qualifier.

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.

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.

Many Rivers to Cross

Sunday 10th June 2018
Starting from Penzance
Organiser Martyn Aldis

306km Brevet de Randonneur. 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.

This is a return of the 2010 Many Rivers route after the lengthy disruptions caused by the A30 dualling works. Slight modifications give an extra sea vista above Porthscatho and an easier crossing of the A30 taking advantage of the new overbridge.

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.
