Title: ACP Randonneur 10000
Post by: Liamo on 20 August, 2017, 06:11:55 pm
After completing LEL, I'm starting to think of where next for me with my audax goals.

As I love shiny bits of medals I've been looking at the various awards that I haven't yet achieved. One that interests me is ACP's Randonneur 10000.

Leaving aside for the moment the Super Randonnee 600, which I'd never heard of before, I see that one of the conditions is two full sets of rides ACP Brevets ie I think that means BRMs 200-1000. My question is if I need to have completed each of the sets within the same season. Or is sets x2 over the six year period?

Two times each of 200, 300, 400, 600 and 1000 BRMs, no substitutions. Any combination you like over six years.

Super randonee is a 600km permanent ride with a significant amount of climbing.

There is so.e discussion in the Cambrian series thread. 6c is the one you need.

The 6C is still in the works, is it not ?

Plus, having previously ridden the 6A with Rabbit and going over all the hills, it's bound to be fierce and choppy.

It's on the acp list of SRs, just needs to go up on audax UK. Personally I'd look to do it in late June or early July with maximum daylight. Should be ready by then.

Alternatives to the 6c would likely involve going to Alps or Pyrenees

Many thanks all. The update on a SR 600 in the UK is very interesting.

I put a claim in for one of these a long while back and did not hear back - Anyone else had the same deal?

Would a Pendle calendar ride count as the Super Randonee or does it have to be a perm?

Has to be a 600 perm recognised as a Super Randonnee by ACP.

I think in the UK the only Super Randonnee recognised by ACP would be the Cambrian 6C, if done in 60 hours

Super!
Next question:
The rules say PBP and, inter alia, a 1200
Would 2 PBPs count?

"Another 1200 km + event homologated by Les Randonneurs Mondiaux"

PBP isn't homologated by LRM.

Please could anybody recommend a 1200 UK based ride which would qualify?

Only LEL in 2021  full list of 1200s is here http://www.randonneursmondiaux.org/38-Calendar_2018.html

None in UK but one in Ireland

Possibly an oft asked question - but does anyone know if each of the required 2 series of ACP brevets has to be done in a calendar season?

The ACP wording seems a little vague to me - it says "2 full series of ACP brevets (200,300,400,600,1000)". But it doesn't state each must be in a narrower time window than the 6 year period of the Randonneur 10,000.

The ACP doesn’t need a series to be done in a single year for this award.

Cool - thx for the confirmation.

Since this thread has been resurrected from 3 years ago, note that there are now 3 more SR600s organised in UK, besides the Cambrian 6c:
https://audax.uk/event-details?eventId=8557 The Great Northern "from Hexham Abbey - more-or-less a tour of the Pennines, down one side and up the other with an extra loop into the Lake District - You Have Been Warned." (map shown on page)
https://audax.uk/event-details?eventId=8306 The Devilishly Difficult Elegant - Tintern to North Wales and back (map shown on page)
https://audax.uk/event-details?eventId=8688 SW England's Moors - from Exeter https://perms.audax.uk/?eventId=8688

Cambrian 6c: https://audax.uk/event-details?eventId=6556 from Knighton 'round Wales' https://perms.audax.uk/?eventId=6556 Openrunner trace (mandatory route): openrunner.com and search for "Cambrian 6C".

For those interested in SR600s further afield - buddy who works with Audax in South Africa just let me know that in the last few days, the ACP have approved and added the "SR Afrique du Sud" to their list.

More info on the Audax SA site - http://audaxsa.co.za/sr-afrique-du-sud/
