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...

Coincidently I also submitted my claim yesterday (late) evening, without any errors. Didn't receive an automatic confirmation by email, but that is probably just as the system works.

Mine have been confirmed as well  :thumbsup: Thanks for the speedy processing Grant!

I vaguely recall that it's possible to claim parallel RRtY, but can't find anything on / linked from the AUK RRtY page or from the Audax FAQ topic in this forum.

If I ride three (registered) 200+km rides every month for the coming 12 months, can I then claim three RRtY? Or is it one RRtY "with special merits"?

And to complicate things further ;D can parallel rides be staggered? My RRtY completed last month (June). However in April, May and June I logged at least three rides; can I now consider April my first month for a "2 parallel" RRtY challenge?

Yes to both questions. Multiple RRtY can be done in parallel and each RRtY can start in any month, overlapping in any conceivable pattern.

Yep, thanks for that reply LWaB :thumbsup:

As an extreme example, not so long ago when life was a different normal, a certain rider completed the Ultra RRtY in 14 months!  Ultra being the gold merit of 10 x RRtY series over any period of time.
Having 2 or 3 concurrent series, with or without the same start month, is not uncommon.

Does this mean the theoretical max number of RRTY's you can do at once is 29 ? As in 1 per day, in a leap year.

There is nothing stopping somebody from riding 2 x 200 in a day.

That would make a theoretical max of 58 at once...

Anyone wanna do that challenge?

I think sleep would be a natural limit for the attempt. Doing multiple laps of a short course and drafting non-entrants or motor vehicles is a no-no.

58*200=11,600 km exceeds Steven Abraham's month record (11,400 km). Of course you'd only need to do that many once.

Well I've done one 200 this month, which could be a precursor to 58 next June.

Surely for the RRTY, you'd need to do 58 for 12 months in a row. For a total of 696 200k's, or 139200km total...

I'm thinking you'd start 5-6 new series each month until you reach 58 at once in the 12th month then wind down over the remaining 11 months.

The middle month could even be a 31 day month with 62x200.

In fact I don't know why we're limiting ourselves to 2x200 per day...

I'll settle for two a month, that'll be challenge enough for me  ;D Only nine months to go!

Jan and Feb are hardest. Few calendar events our side of the pond, and high risk of ice.

Btw, does this mean I'll be seeing you in Amsterdam for the 200 in December?

Likely yes, despite it using the houtrib- and oostvaardersdijk; only the afsluitdijk would be more boring...

My first RRtY was 12 BRM, the 2nd was 2 BRM +2 DIY (but: covid). Qualifying for a Dutch RRtY is quite difficult because they only acknowledge BRM. At least we now have two options for December  :thumbsup:

The route has been changed. Going over those dijks in December is just masochistic.

My second RRTY was 9 BRM, then 3 calendar events, I was trying for 12 BRM, but plague...

The Dutch calendar is much more RRTY friendly now (except in PBP years), tho the only 200 in July is usually a 2500m climb from Heerlen, which is annoying, but at least now a RRTY of just Dutch 200's is in theory plausible, even if July is very very difficult.
