p.s. if Pete is still reading this thread:

why 15kph, not 14.3?

Sorry not to have picked up that my perm was being discussed  :facepalm:
Personally I'd have everything (up to 600km) at 15kph minimum and do away with 14.3 in the interests of simplicity.

I do get that full-valuers (and I'm one myself - as mattc knows) can find the extra time rather helpful on the more 'scenic' rides - but my perms, whilst they do have the odd bit of lumpiness, are nowhere hilly enough to justify AAA points, and I just can't see the additional time being needed.

Also applies to the new "Dip Into Dorset" 200km

With respect to BCM permanent, the outline of the route looks splendid (I am assuming it runs clockwise)... Is it possible to do it with GPS validation? (I do understand the risks involved in relying on an electronic device for a 600). Also, is it possible to start/finish in Dolgellau? Seems to make sense in order to reduce the load on the bike
