Audax Kernow 2023 Season

A belated round-up of the events of 2023 and links to results.

After starting our season with the Falmouth events on the 2nd of April, next up were the 50km, 100km and 200km events from Perranwell on the 21st of May. All three rides were well supported and the weather was kind. Some nice photos of the Lizard and the Camel 200km from St Austell Wheelers and of Peter’s Point 50km from Newquay Cycling

The Mines and Mineral Railways on- and off-road events followed on the 18th of June, and again we were lucky with the weather. Pasties and cream teas went down well, and the off-roaders were no muddier than usual.

The final events of the season were the 200km and 300km events from Penzance on the 25th June. There was just one rider on the challenging Many Rivers to Cross 300km event, and although it was not run as a Paris-Brest-Paris qualifier this year, it nevertheless preserves its record: so far, every PBP entrant who’s completed this ride has also completed their PBP. Lucy Bufton finished both with little time to spare, and her account of her Many Rivers to Cross ride appears in the Winter 2023 edition of Arrivée, the AUK magazine.

The Audax UK site lists the validated finishers – links below. E-bike riders are not included in the official lists, but were welcome on all the Brevet Populaire rides and deserve full credit for meeting the different challenges involved.

Paris Brest Paris Randonneur 2019

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.

Click on the images below for stage timings. Unfortunately the tracker this time did not show distances, just timings for arrival at each control, but you can view the route on the ACP site here.

Looking forward

Two Audax Kernow events for April are now on the AUK Calendar.

The Falmouth Wheelers’ Cornish 100 and Bunny Hop rides will run on 14th April – a week before Easter this year, as Easter is so late.

The Penzance X-rated 200km and 300km events will run on the 21st – Easter Sunday. As 2019 is a Paris-Brest-Paris year they are running as BRM (Brevet de Randonneur Mondial) events and can be used as part of a PBP qualifying series.

I’ll be updating our own calender and Facebook page with these events sometime later this year, with others as they are calendared.

No Ed’s Mince Pie and Mulled Wine Audax this December to look forward to I’m afraid, but many years of a very special ride to look back on and celebrate. As far as I can ascertain, this ride started in December 2007, running first from Connor Downs before moving more recently to Carharrack,  and only missed one year (due to icy weather in 2011) in those 11 years. I’m sure everyone who has ever taken part will want to thank Eddie Angell and Wendy Wallis for all their past efforts and successes in warming parts other rides don’t reach.

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
