New DIY Regional Organiser

TONY HULL is taking over from IAN HENNESSEY as South West regional DIY organiser

Ian will continue to process DIY entries and routes, which have already been approved by him, until the end of February
ALL NEW DIY EVENT ENTRIES for south west region DIY organiser should be sent to Tony Hull

John - these statements from your post appear contradictory at first sight (but probably aren't). Are you saying that we can continue to use ukcyclist.org.uk to enter DIYs as before, but that Tony rather than Ian will see these entries, and that completed brevet cards should now be sent to Tony (and new cards ordered from him)? Would it be appropriate to put Tony's postal address on this thread?

Ian is still going to maintain a page on the UKcyclist website for DIY event entries, but they will all go to Tony Hull, who will be responsible for all aspects of south west DIYs: brevet card orders, DIY route approval and validations of completed events.

Another New 200km Permanent event from Steve Poulton
Designed by Steve to be "A good winter route with minimal ascent on god roads (no lanes)" and in fact designed and ridden (first as a DIY) by Steve so that he could maintain his RRTY cycling one-legged on his tricycle despite breaking his femur and replacement hip joint. Knowing Steve. I can't help but suspect he will continue like this through the year just so that he can claim the first one-legged RRTY!
 
Cheltenham Olde Folks 2000 (200km) (ref SP42)
Route takes in Controls at Cheltenham, Thornbury, Upton on Severn, Worcester and Evesham.

I think the Manningtree  200/300/400 are probably closest. Unless you want to do Lowestoft to Ardnamurchan.

(Didn't realise we could post to this thread - I'd been waiting for JW to post details of...)

Meridian Hills 200km (event WW11)

A scenic tour of the green and pleasant land that straddles the Meridian line south of London.  Takes in three Areas of Outstanding Beauty: High Weald, Kent Downs and South Downs.  210km and 3,500m of official climbing, but the hills are incidental to the route and not vice versa.  Several completers to date, with positive tales about their experiences.  Convenient for those who find themselves in London and the southern home counties itching for a day awheel.

Last call for the DIY-way to LEL. Having served its purpose, this will be withdrawn and I won't be taking any more entries after the end of June. Any existing entries will remain valid until the end of this season (ie 30th September)

Coming soon...London-Edinburgh-London the Permanent Way

Many thanks to Cyclingnewforest for getting these new perm rides on to the system.

The Bryan Chapman Memorial (permanent) is now available as hybrid of all the best bits of the variant of the ride from the last few decades.

Further info at http://www.aukweb.net/perms/detail/MR11/

No need to wait for the May monsoons.

And for those that would like to ride the course at a more tranquil pace, here's also a populaire version available.

Further info for the populaire at http://www.aukweb.net/perms/detail/MR12/
where you have a concentration of power in a few hands, all too frequently men with the mentality of gangsters get control. History has proven that. Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Once again, many thanks to Cyclingnewforest (and Steve Snook the AAA Man) for getting these new perm rides on to the system.

Mae Mr. Pickwick yn mynd i chwilio am ddreigiau (Mr. Pickwick goes in search of dragons). A spectacular cycling experience, exploring the most scenic & diverse countryside in Wales, from cycling along the Wye, Usk & Teifi valleys in the south to the Nantlle and Conwy valleys in the north - and evertyhing in between. Experience the tranquillity of lakes Cwellyn, Bala & Vyrnwy - but to name a few. Cross dessert from Llandovery to Tregaron. Controls at Tewkesbury, Monmouth, Talybont-on-Usk, Llandovery, Devil's Bridge, Barmouth, Pen-y-Groes, Betws-y-Coed, Newtown and Leominster. Many of the controls also have sleep facilities available, so start anywhere on the route and ride it as a round-robin. Of course you could always wait and see what faukther christmas brings in next year's calendar

Further info at http://www.aukweb.net/perms/detail/MR13/

And for those that would like to ride the course at a more tranquil pace - (say) at 100km per day, there's also a populaire version available. This ride being ideal for those looking to step-up in distance, but having the luxury/option of taking a rest-day - or two.

Further info for the populaire at http://www.aukweb.net/perms/detail/MR14/ .

Speaking to John today and like to note that Old cards/rides that have been paid for through me can be used and entered through me until used up.
No new DIY events refers to no new cards purchased.
I have taken the diyaudax email from Paypal so this shouldn't happen now anyway.

Once again many thanks to Cyclingnewforest for getting this new perm ride on to the system.

Benjamin Allen's Spring Tonic is now available.

Further info will be loaded onto at http://www.aukweb.net/perms/detail/MR24/  . But for those that cannot wait, calendar info available here http://www.aukweb.net/events/detail/14-323/
This  ride is very, very similar to the calendar event, A fairly fast 200, not flat - but certainly not lumpy enough for AAA points.
