A calendar event at last - completed the Tocky 200 yesterday so that's my July Rrty, number 8 in the sequence that has started with DIY's since December.  Nice to do the ride in company with a small group of riders.

Hot, hot hot weather and a bit of heat rash on the legs, hopefully that will ease off quickly.  An interesting route, using parts of the York - Selby railway path; and canal towpath, as well as nice minor roads.  Well worth entering if Nick runs this again next year.

Hello all RRtY'ers present and future. With immediate effect I have handed over the RRtY administrator role to our new delegate Grant Huggins. He will be contactable on the same rrty@audax.uk e-mail address so no change to the process. I am sure he will be very rigorous and ensure that no dodgy claims sneak through  :)

For the last two and a half years, I've enjoyed corresponding with all of you and collecting those little stories and special achievements which make things interesting. Good luck to all those trying for their first series and those trying to extend their run to earn the coveted x5 and x10 badges.

As a RRTY rider I have taken a lot of pleasure boosting my totals. But it takes a lot of effort to keep the tables accurate and up to date. Many thanks bhoot for your ‘turn’; it is good that we have a delegate to continue the admin, as I am sure I echo the whole RRTY chasers with their thanks.
Just added No 28 to my collection by riding 28 no 12 today, the hottest day. July is a short month for me as I have only just returned from a 3 week trip to Slovenia

Thanks for your tenure and our handover session, bhoot! 
I will of course endeavor to keep up with your claims when they arrive in the RRtY inbox as I climb the admin learning curve.  :)

Here here! Huggy will be getting my x6 in January (I think).

I got my August event out of the way yesterday.  A DIY because of holidays and limited number of calendar events this month.  It was quite cool at the start, with a bit of a headwind.  By the afternoon I had the wind behind me on the way back however it became very hot and humid.  I must have drunk at least four litres of various re-hydration drinks / water / juice and still felt thirsty at the end.

That's number 9 completed, just 3 to go (fingers crossed).  It starts to get a bit tense when you get near to the magic number.

Missed July again.

For me july was tight also, managed to sneak in a DIY during the final weekend. But this means that I missed a chance of 2 conscecutive RRtY's with only events.

I was planning to, but couldn't ride Saturday and didn't want it enough to ride solo in the rain all day on Sunday.

Trust you will be riding a 300 in either Aug or Sep to complete a SR series; I have a 300 Perm SP15 Central Scotland 300 Innerleithen<> Crieff. That might just kick-start a second RRTY? Well done on your First.
