Author Topic: Yr Elenydd . . . . in memory of Dave Pountney. (Was Yr Elenydd 2020)  (Read 2220 times)

In an attempt to prevent another of the longest standing and more iconic events "falling off the calendar". Yr Elenydd will take place on April 25th next year.

The core "Elenydd" remains intact. With 'business as usual from Shobdon through Rhayader and beyond. The event is at the longer end of the 300km span, but is a BR event - so you will get extra time for the extra distance.

AAA details have been submitted for consideration, but I would expect a similar figure to the perm event (which is 4.75AAA).

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.

The route looks great.

I am going to have to get a serious amount of brownie points in the bag with the wife to get away with riding three 300's in April!

Will the event be renamed in view of today's sad news?

The thought had occurred to me. But can we keep this particular issue on the back burner for a while.

My thoughts are with Charlotte at the moment.

I’m definitely in, so pleased to see this is back!

I was going to be sensible and do it on two wheels, but in light of recent news I’m going to attempt it on three with Flash... I’m glad it’s a BR so we get that extra hour...
