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.

Sunday 3rd July 2022
Starting from Penzance 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. 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.
Ups and downs guaranteed.
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 entries on the day.
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.
