Audax Kernow riders complete Paris-Brest-Paris Randonneur

Paris-Brest-Paris 2015 - jeudi 20 août

Martyn Aldis and Trevor Stephens have completed PBP. Trevor achieved a “sub 80 hour” finish, while Martyn, true to form, made it with just a couple of hours to spare.

Chapeau to both.

Trevor Stephens – with time for a beer

Martyn Aldis – a buggy tracker kept us guessing

Local (and not so local) rides in 2015

I have updated the “Forthcoming events” calendar with details of all the Audax Kernow organisers’ rides up until July. As usual, you will also find some details of Devon events that venture our side of the Tamar. Printable poster (PDF file) here:

Audax Events on Cornish Roads April to June 2015

As this is a Paris-Brest-Paris year all the events over 200km in length are BRM (Brevet Randonneur Mondiaux) events, run under the regulations of the French club, Audax Club Parisien (ACP). More information, including details of the timeframes for qualification, is available on the Audax UK site.

Rumour is that a few local Audaxers are hoping to take part this year. You can see Don Hutchison’s 1999 ride report on this site, and we’d welcome your reports of 2015 qualifying rides whether in Cornwall or further afield.
