Mines and Mineral Railways 30th June 2019

Over 100 riders on the Mines and Mineral Railways events enjoyed a day out up, down and along in mining country, most also taking advantage of the pasty lunch and cream tea.

There were 58 riders on the 67km on-road route who all finished well in time. The riders included several on e-bikes who successfully played off the power of legs and batteries to cover the terrain without running either flat.

An off-road route of similar distance is a much harder challenge and there were some DNFs but still 32 finishers, including one gritty rider who finished with 17 minutes in hand, then turned around to go back and urge on her flagging friend – she also made it, with 3 minutes to spare. Chapeaux all round, and many thanks to Simon and his helpers for the excellent organisation and feeding.

There are some pictures on the Falmouth Wheelers web site here and here. Results list are on the Audax UK site as linked below.

Excellent day out yesterday both on tarmac and on trails  – who’d have thought we would be glad of a drop of rain to keep things cool for a while.

Chris Rayne has provided some excellent photos of the event as usual.

Chris’s own events, the Celtic Coastal and the Celtic Canter on the 21st October are now registered in the AUK calendar for the 2018/19 season and are open for entries. I’ve added these and other local(ish) events currently registered to our list of forthcoming events.
