(no) Breakfast at t' Milburys - 100km - 2 February

The following email has gone out to riders today (some may not see it in spam folders)

I route checked yesterday – and along the way, learned that the Milburys pub after whom I had named the route have now decided they don’t want to be a control after all.

In order to comply with the AUK requirements for route & distance integrity, I’ve had to add an Info control (answer a simple question on the Brevet card) at a junction just before the Milburys, and those wanting a feed will need to continue another 10km to Alresford where there are numerous cafes, pubs, shops and ATMs (to obtain a receipt) .

There will however be plenty of food (included in the entry fee) provided Awbridge at before the start and again at the finish.

I do appreciate this won’t suit everybody, and can only apologise for the late change in arrangements.  If it causes you to pull out, let me know this week and I will issue a refund.

One point about Awbridge: There is quite a bit of parking – but this event, and especially the accompanying 200km event, are proving very popular, so if you are able to ride to the event, or share a vehicle, that will be much appreciated.

Updated routesheet and GPX track can now be downloaded to the AUK website event page http://www.aukweb.net/events/detail/18-485/ (old website) and https://www.audax.uk/event-details?eventId=6943 (new website)

There will also be a changes in the accompanying 200km event, the first to replace the Milburys with an info control - and
the second to replace the village hall lunch stop (into which someone drove a 4x4 last week rendering the whole building unsafe)  :facepalm:

Both events have proved extraordinarily popular for winter events and a first time running so I'm hoping there are some volunteers out there who would like to help with providing food / card stamping etc
