Devoran Events 16th July 2017

Calling the new 100km ride “Blue Sea” was probably tempting fate.

The day was mostly overcast and often mizzley, and riders on the West Penwith loop had difficulty seeing Lanyon Quoit, let alone the glorious view out to sea that makes the climb worthwhile. Nevertheless, we had a cheerful field who made the most of two stops at the new Gwithian Church Hall control and returned in good spirits to Devoran and rather nicer weather. As did the small but select group of Peter’s Point riders – everyone finishing in good time and probably the least damp of the day’s entrants.

The Lizard and the Camel 200km was more of a challenge in this year’s weather than last year’s sunshine, but the riders rose to the occasion brilliantly with nearly all the starters finishing. A number of last year’s riders took it on again, and two riders new to the distance gained their “Randonneur” status – chapeau!

Thanks to Peter, Eddie and Chris for expertly manning the Gwithian control, and to all the riders for taking part, playing the game, and making the day fun.
