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.

Question on the return of cards with Perms...

 I recently purchased via online entry a Brevet Card for a perm. After completing the event is it standard practice to send a SAE to the organiser to return the validated card or is this included in the charge?

I realise that some perms are the same price for either online or postal entry, however for postal entry you're required to send two SAE. The instructions for online entry don't elude to this.

It varies by perm organiser.  Most will ask you to include an SAE if you want your validated brevet card back.

Le Tour de neuf Cheval Blancs next Friday (29th). 

This caught my eye as initially I thought it must be in France, but it turns out to be a tour of 9 white horses in the chalk hills of Wessex.  Lots of familiar roads but joined up in different ways.  Will ride from home to start in Alresford about 6am and see how it goes.  Hopefully will be a nice 300 for my how-to-fit-in-an-SR-series-when-you-are-not-doing-PBP year.

Having abandoned the 2019 London Wales London 400km for reasons beyond my control  :'(, I'm planning to do this ride again as DIY Audax in July, preferably on a Saturday following the original route mostly, but avoiding some hills. The pace will be moderate, 20kmph moving average (not a fast rider, sorry  ;D).

Start: Chalfont St Peter
Distance: 407km
Preferred Day: Saturday 
Date: 20 or 27 July (flexible)
Start time: Flexible

Please let me know if you're interested.

I did a DIY by GPS on Sunday.  I submitted my route to the organiser at the beginning of the week but had no confirmation that the ride has been registered.  I went ahead and did the ride, uploading my GPX track.  I am assuming he is away on holiday, maybe making his way to Rambouillet and it will processed later.

Entered a DIY for 1st August. Confirmation page on AUK worked as expected but I didn't get the usual confirmation email. However, the organiser had received the entry.

Anyone else not getting confirmation emails?

Thanks for posting. Anyone else? Do please say, here or (better) on the AUK site.

It worked ok for me just now.

Can someone kindly link me to where it is explained how to make a DIY into a BR/BRM qualifying ride in order to count towards RRTY?  The FAQ for DIYs on the new website just points me here.  Feels very circular!

By default, DIYs of 200km and over are validated as BRs and so count towards RRTY and other AUK awards. No special action is required to stake a claim for DIYs; they are counted in exactly the same way Calendar events do, there is no distinction.

Perms - listed events and DIYs - are not registered with ACP and do not count as BRMs or otherwise contribute towards ACP awards, qualifying for PBP, whatever.

Beaten to it by the excellent Manotea; but here's my version of the same:

Any DIY of 200km or more is normally* a BR. (Minimum average speed 14.3km/hour for DIY 200s to 600s; speeds for longer distances in section 9 of the regs, which can be found by clicking "Directory", bottom right of this page:  https://www.audax.uk/about-us/  )

*There's such a thing as a BP 200, with a lower minimum speed, but it's unusual.

(There isn't such a thing as a BRM DIY.)
