I'm working on resurrecting AWE as a calendar event this summer, just need to finalise the hall bookings and should then be ready to publish it

4 rides done.   Hopefully the Invicta Grimpeur this Sunday will complete the set.

Been quite good fun doing something different this year.

And done.   Really pleased with these events and they seem to have given me a new lease of life.

Here it is: http://www.aukweb.net/events/detail/20-177/ - filling the gap in the GdS calendar for July as well.

Damn.   Will be away at the Pan Celtic.   At least I think I will.

 :-[ Sorry to hear that Martin but thanks for trying.

I couldn't make it anyway, given it clashes with BCM and also a festival I'd double-booked myself in for. Most likely outcome is all are cancelled.

All my perms AAA Milne, Mallorca Moonpig, The Reliable and Meridian Hills are available from August 1st.

AAA Milne, Mallorca Moonpig, The Reliable can also be extended to 200km, AAA Milne certainly lends itself well to this being 50km from That London to its Northernmost point, RRTY AAARTY and even GdSRTY all ticked in one ride what's not to like?  :thumbsup:

A reminder that the IoW round the island 100km ride in either direction is valid as a GdS and it doesn't need to be entered as a DIY; just a gpx route to me or photos around the route will suffice; and of course a 6 rider limit from any one start location

Also; like RRTY and AAARTY the GdSRTY resumes tomorrow so March-July 2020 are excluded (unless you did an eligible ride in March) The regular GdS award still requires 5 rides to be ridden before 31.12.20 (there were 3 eligible calendar events which did run this year)

There will almost certainly be no more calendar eligible events this year as I have had no entries for the Mid Sussex Hilly / Hillier in October even if were to be allowed

It hadn't personally occurred to me to enter MSH as I assumed all Calendar entries were closed until AUK announced otherwise, if it was to go ahead I would definitely enter. I would also be happy to help out on the day if a shortage of helpers was the only thing stopping it going ahead. But yes, obviously you need to have some certainty in planning at some point.

I don't think it's possible to run an event of this type with full hall service and many riders clamouring for hot dogs at the lunch control until the Covid threat has disappeared. A shame because this year would have been the 20th edition  :(

Would like to recommend the AAA Milne as a superb day out, I rode it on Sunday. Can start from East Grinstead railway station, so fairly easy for them from That London.

Recommended.
Besides, it wouldn't be audacious if success were guaranteed.

AAA Milne was slated to run as a calendar event for the 3rd time in July 2021; as I will probably be running 2 200s before then we'll see (goes to check best before date on hot dogs in garage)

I second the AAA Milne recommendation! I rode it on Saturday. Really enjoyed the quiet lanes through the forest, lovely scenery, and all the climbs felt quite gradual, nothing too sharp.

I also extended it using the excellent new EPE functionality, which worked out well. With the 2 possible AAA Milne start points there are a lot of places within range!
