The story so far

Here’s a quick review of the Audax Kernow events since our restart after Covid 19 restrictions, with links to some photos and to the Audax UK results lists which show riders with validated brevets.

First were the Falmouth Wheelers’ Bunny Hop and Cornish 100 events run in September 2021 and, with a variation of route, in April this year. Then in May we had the 100km Celtic Coastal run by new organiser Charlie Jarrell. Last week saw the return of the Mines and Minerals On-road and Off road events. All well attended and much enjoyed, in varying weather conditions.

If you’ve entered already and missed the spot, it’s not too late to add your food order – just use the Audax Kernow part of the AUK Store to choose your pasty and cream tea or pudding.

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.
