2020 Summer Arrow/Dart to York, 19/06/2020

Mmm, well, not to steal Andy's thunder, but they're up...

Arrow & Dart, same w/e as York Rally / BHPC on Sun

Nominal finish will be The Postern Gate PH, 90 Picadilly, York - I'll see about covering ETA periods of entrants as they come in, and I get a feel for how things are shaping up.

Better read the "Herding Cats for Beginners" tome then :P
I'd offer you some moral support - but I have questionable morals.

Are the Arrow rules in an appendix to the Audax Rools and Appendices? The appendices seem no longer to be appended.
https://www.audax.uk/about-audax/audax-uk-regulations/
https://www.audax.uk/media/1806/auk_regulations_050418.pdf
the "AUK Regulations and Appendices"
There's a link to the 'Arrows' page
https://www.audax.uk/about-audax/audax-uk-regulations/rules-arrows/
but these aren't the full rules (at least they seem to be (merely) a precis of the 2018 rules).
Where has the 'Arrows' appendix gone?

Here's the full version, possibly not quite current, but accurate.
It's no longer linked on the website.  I don't know why.

I can't do the Easter one (unless someone has a team in Girona looking for a rider?) but I assume a Summer Arrow would count towards Brevet 25000 award?

If so, are there any teams around London looking for a rider?

Yes the summer arrow does count towards the audax uk brevet 5000 and 25000 awards.
It does not count for the ACP randonneur 5000 or 10000 awards.

Cheers. I was skipping over the shorter ones but now I see there's a 100,000k award I should be aiming for instead... :S

I reckon that's about 20 years of Audax for me. Rides can count towards different awards, so need need to skip over, you can collect them all. Of course brevet 5000 doesnt prove much once you have brevet 25000

Yeah, I'm not so much interested in the awards, I just saw it as something to 'check off' my mental todo list and didn't see the point bothering with the intermediate steps.

I know I smell but I really thought I'd have more interest from random people on the internet to stare at my backside for a whole day ;)
