Wonder if I can convince iroiromono to ditch his snow roads round the year in favour of rrty-tandem. (although panic 300 was due to a tandem failure so...)


I'd be up for that....

 This month I just completed RRTY 4 with The Eightsome Reel.

 I have two other series which were 3x rides deep at the end of July, but I will only be continuing with one of those through the winter with this past weekend's Rothes Recce. I don't think I'll be taking off tomorrow simply to keep another one going. Believe it or not a 1600 isn't that conductive to getting lots of rides on the board in a month for a RRTY.

RRTY#5  now 5/12 complete this past weekend with Highland Audax's Eilean Dubh.

More importantly the 2 points gave me the last point I needed for the Brevet 25,000 award.

 This wekend I kick off RRTY#6 with the Centennial BRM Talla Ho!

Completed RRtY 4 on Sunday.  Mostly DIYs, with a covid interruption in January and February this year. From a selfish point of view, this lockdown was a bonus because I missed two months of potentially difficult weather and short days.  On the other hand, for RRtY 3 I lost several warm months and long days in the first lockdown between April and August 2020.

All done on a recumbent (I find an upright bike too uncomfortable for anything more than 100k nowadays):

19th August - 200k from Biggar
14th September - 200k from Stamfordham
11th October - 200k from Ponteland
22nd November - 200k from home
2nd December - 200k from home
Lockdown
30th March - 200k from Staindrop
17th April - 200k Calendar event from Brampton
14th May - 200k from Staindrop
19th June - 200k from home
2nd July - 200k from Staindrop
12th August - 200k one way trip from Grassington
5th September - 200k from Easingwold

And if I manage another 200k ride in September that will be number 5 started, with the prospect of winter rides to come.

Always good to do a RRTY qualifier early in the month; in my case, I am trying 3 rides in Oct, so to complete on 1st gives plenty of time to fit in 2 more. The weather helped with a satisfactory forecast cf the weekend. Not only that, the last 2mths have seen me complete 2 more RRtYs nos 34 (in Sep) & 35 yesterday. I have also managed to kick-start 2 more, so I am set for more Winter battles.

Trying to keep 2 going again, #5 has been a hard one to keep going with multiple false starts, ha dit on 4 months when my leg blew up the night before the 5th month, if it had blown up after it instead of the bike check the suspension would have kept it going.

Snow hare, lantern rouge, c2c2c and ToBaG have it on 4

#6 is on 3 with 4th month pending validation
Moscow express, moulin muirs route test, panic 300 and Rothes recce pending.

Wonder if I can convince iroiromono to ditch his snow roads round the year in favour of rrty-tandem. (although panic 300 was due to a tandem failure so...)

I'm tentatively beginning one.

I'm not entirely clear on one thing - In Sept, I did a 100km BP with an 100km ECE. Does that become BR?

April - Snow Hare 200 Helpers Ride
May - Reiver Fever 300
June - Debatable Lands 200
July - Four Tops 222
August - DIY 200
September - Talla Ho 200
October - Scottish Borders Randonnee 200

First attempt at a RRTY, never thought about it when living in Stornoway - too many DIYs in short daylight hours with the majority of cafes closed. Looking to complete by my 61st birthday in March. Next event is Long Dark Tea Time of an Audax Soul in November then onto DIYs.

15 years and 17 RRtY (if my maths is right).  Impressive - if I can keep going until I'm 75 I might catch you up.

I got to 10 x RRtY before C19 and flicked the idea of splitting another series around C19 restrictions. We might be able to get through 12 months without shutting down AUK again, so I might try for the next series:

Anyone else have issues claiming a RRTY using the form on the auk website? I get

"There was a problem sending your email. Please try again."

I've emailed Huggy directly, but wondered if this is a website bug others are experiencing...

J
I have your email and will process in next few days. Not aware of any issues with the claim form, will take a look and ask the websitefoomeisters if necessary…..
I have just sent my 31<>35 Claim to Huggy and had the same problem message. I then just sent again and it went ...successfully, (it claimed)? Over to Huggy.

I've already completed a RRTY a few years back (and that was annoying enough to schedule with all the other events I was doing) but now I have less racing I'm looking to do another one, but this time an AAARTY.

So, I'm looking for AAA rated 200s for 12 months (will have to be some DIYs in there as calendars are lacking over winter and timing prevents doing some others)

Nov: Chiltern Churner (remix) 3AAA, ridden on Sat
Dec: We've entered Kings, Castles, Priests & Churches 200k / 1.5AAA

If you know of any AAA stuff easily accessible by train from west London, feel free to let me know.

Could you do a DIY 200 that covers the same ground as the Down to Downs 100 perm? https://ridewithgps.com/routes/17863724

Cheers. I've grabbed that. Is it "audax legal" to ride a 100k route one direction and then immediately reverse it to get a 200k?
Another option in that neck of the woods I've already spotted is AWE - Around Weald Expedition: https://audax.uk/event-details?eventId=9198

Certainly yes.

(What is not allowed is repeating significant sections in the same direction.)

There is quite a bit in that part of the world. For example "The Shark" that is run by Ivan: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/19932929

If you are happy starting in Greenwich or changing up the route this came with 3.25 AAA points: https://ridewithgps.com/trips/1925765 and this got 3.75 AAA points: https://ridewithgps.com/trips/633957

Cheers. I've got Greenwich Mean Climb listed as a maybe - same as the Shark I've not really found time for it, but it could be a DIY.
I'm in West London, so many of these are going to require a schlep across town and back as well as the over-distance. I have to sell these to the missus as well, remember :D

Autumnal DIY 200 in October was great.

November should be month #9 but having caught COVID earlier on the in month it seems very unlikely I'll be able to do a 200 this weekend.  :(
