Many Rivers to Cross

11 June, 2017
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.

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.

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.

Many Rivers to Cross

5 June, 2016

309km Brevet Randoneur, this year running in June.

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.

The route has been updated taking out the visit to Lizard village and looping east of Bodmin Moor.  The start is half an hour later in order not to arrive too early for the King Harry Ferry via the new route. Update has been forced by delays to A30 overbridge construction but the resulting route should be a treat.

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.

Easter BRMs from Penzance

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.
