Silly question (that I should have asked before going out for the ride), but does a DIY 200 count towards your points and for a Brevet 1000 award?

My first DIY ever does now show up in the table on my results page, but is not included in the total points and "rides listed"; it does show "16 (1 are perms)" but it is still "3x200" as it was last week.

Yes, your 200 will count but it may just be a bit of a system bug or lag, my final ride of the season, the Border Castles 200 is on the results list but the 2 points have not been added to the total.  There is usually a lag between the ride being logged and I think the points go on after midnight but it's been like this for a couple of days, I might raise it on the AUK forum if it doesn't correct itself.

Hi, I am thinking about heading to Cornwall over the xmas break and have 5 rides/routes which initially I hope to do as leisurely rides - but then I thought if there is Audax points to be had why not claim them! 
Then I got thinking about AAA points, but not having factored that into a DIY by GPS before I wonder if any of this basic information below would even satisfy AAA-criteria? And thirdly do I have do anything special to claim the AAA points or do I just submit the entry form and gpx/route as normal?

Day 1 - 94km - 1574m total ascent
Day 2 - 143km - 1302m total ascent
Day 3 - 131km - 1374m total ascent
Day 4 - 141km - 1202m total ascent
Day 5 - is a perm

Total ascent values are through BikeHide recalculation of data.

No need to do anything special - just your DIY-by-GPS entry as usual.

Your track will get AAA assessment if there seems a chance of AAAs.

"Day 1" looks more likely than the others to reach the 15m/km AAA threshold http://www.aukweb.net/results/aaa/aaavnts/aaaqual/

AAA-ness is difficult to predict http://www.aukweb.net/results/aaa/aaaclmb/

Enjoy wonderful Cornish Climbing!

Thank you, not seen that first link; because like many of the pages it's not in the main menu or hard to navigate to!

The second table is very useful.
