Later in the year than normal but still the same great ride after all the waiting. Online entries only this year due to Covid-19 restrictions – no entries on the day.

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.
