BBc London 600 added  :thumbsup: The first calendar 600 to qualify

Anyone want to run a 400?  :)

This looks great! Literally just sent off my cheque for the BCM but might have to do both.

Mid Sussex Hilly / Hillier entries coming in nicely. One of the original GdS events (in fact the Hilly pre-dates the award by 6 years). The Hillier adds a few extra climbs around East Grinstead and of course Ditchling Beacon (up and back down) almost at the end.

Manotea aka "Mr Westler" will satisfy your post Cob Lane lunchtime hunger with hot dogs (veggie as well)  :P

also the last eligible calendar event of 2019; the GdS runs Jan to Dec  :)

as there isn't currently a GdS RRTY (most calendar events are sub 200 and thanks to the new AAA system there is only one eligible 200, yours) hard to comment

Isn't The Shark also an eligible 200... ?

2 new Steam Rides added for 2020

https://sites.google.com/site/grimpeursdusud/

Both rides are qualifiers for the new ACH SR in 2020:  www.steamride.co.uk

Steam Ride:University Challenge 600
https://www.aukweb.net/events/detail/20-617/

Chiltern Pub Crawl 200
https://www.aukweb.net/events/detail/20-294/


Unfortunately the Steam Ride:University Challenge 600 2.5AAA, GdS hyper-link is linking to the Island ride 1.5.. ???


as well as my other AUK admin I do have a full time job!  :-\ I'll get round to it in due course I don't usually update next year's events until nearer January.

Which 300? Oasts and Coasts has also lost its AAA IIRC :(

Greenwich Mean Climb definitely hasn't lost its AAA, and then possibly The Dean? (I don't think the Dean counts towards GdS tbh)

ACME Grand counts, with 9.25 AAA points. I think I used that last year in obtaining my GdS SR, and it is running again next September.

Also continuing to push the GdS region envelope, a couple more 1000's: KWAC's London–Land’s End–London and ACB's Cornish Riviera Express Perm?

There was text on the Hills and Mills page to say entries not open until 26th November. That text has gone (or I can’t see it for looking), but I don’t see an entry button yet.
