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.

Even More Rivers

11 June, 2017
Starting from Penzance
Organiser Martyn Aldis

308km Brevet de Randonneur, crossing the rivers Fal, Fowey, Lynher and Camel by ferries and bridges, large and small.

Based on the Many Rivers to Cross route but cutting out the trip to the Lizard and replacing it with a loop right around the high eastern flank of Bodmin Moor with long views across the Tamar Valley to Dartmoor (Weather permitting). An even fuller and tougher day out.

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.

Many Rivers to Cross

11 June, 2017

Organiser Martyn Aldis

307km 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 follows the original Many Rivers route crossing the A30 at Four Winds. This crossing should be open by June but if the road scheme suffers further delays and the overbridge is incomplete entrants will be able to swap to Even More Rivers 300 or the Four Hundreds 200.

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.
