Well, if RRTY can have one, why not FWC? I know this means some of you nutters will have to log every ride here. Well, nobody's forcing you I guess...

2008/2009: 17

2009/2010:
Upper Thames 200 - 2
Tinsel Lanes 200 - 2

Now, if you'd asked me last year it would have been different. But this year I think it's a mere 2 points

IIRC it'll be my usual 8 points again this year from 4 winter 200s, Nov-Feb inc.

Cambrian 200 (5.75)

DIY 300 (3)*

Total 74.75
2 x SFW: 1 SR, 20+ AAA pts.

*Yesterday, my first geared audax since July last year. :o

My list is on the AUK results list, but if you add on my 17AAA points (another 8.25 for the not yet validated Hellfire 600) and the 2 600k permanents, then it adds up to 84 points.
I most likely wont ride another event this season, so if you do a few good rides, we might have a new name on the fixed wheel award. :thumbsup:

Now there's a challenge. A couple of quick 600s should do it.

Maybe you'd like to ride one with MikeK and I on 31st October?
If it helps, I'll do it on gears, just for a challenge.

1st Nov is next season though, how do points work with the end of season deadline? Can one start a DIY 2600 on Oct 31st and ride it over the next 13 days?

On the assumption that your question wasn't rhetoric - er No.

It's a trick question (ok, it's a badly phrased question).

There's nothing stopping you doing such a ride, but the question is better asked as; were you to do such a ride which year would the points be assigned to, this or next?

What about a 600 where you do equal riding on both Oct 31st and Nov 1st?
What about a 400 on October 31st that you finish at 8am on Nov 1st?
What about a 300 on October 31st that you finish at 12:01am on Nov 1st?

Who cares?
It'll give them something to stew over at the nexy comitte meeting. :D :demon:












Actualy, it's in the rules somewhere. I can't remember now, but it is in the rules.

Somewhere...

It's been answered on here as well, in the last few months.  Can't recall the answer though.  How helpful is that ? Not very.

If the rules are the same as for RRTY, then you could choose which season to allocate your points (and obviously not both). More pertinent for the FWC is that the Richard and the committee need the results as soon as possible if they are to be awarded in time for the AGM. A leisurely 2600km ride is likely to be too late.

I remember seeing something about rides, or parts of rides, qualifying for different RRTY months, but not for AUK 'seasons' in general.

My Search-fu fails me too.

Yes - I was reinterpreting RRTY "rules" for FWC purposes. I think the ins and outs are explained on Mike Wigley's RRTY site.

I think you're right. It's in the rules on the RRTY web-page

My current list (and unlikey to change before the end of the season as work has got in the way of real life):

Upper Thames (2)
Marlborough Connection (2)
Brazier's Run (1)
Springtime 200 (2)
Up The Uts (2)
The Dean (3)
DIY 200 (2)
Brevet Cymru (4)
Brian Chapman (14.25)
Rural South (3)
Suburban Breakout (1)
LEL (14)

Total 50.25

It's a pity the Brevet Cymru doesn't have any AAAs this year, as the identical route used to have them.

Not me guv, I'm done with audaxing for the season.  I reckon Iddu might be doing pretty well this year.

Just the same with me - only 2 points this year, though quite a few more than that last year. For various reasons I've only actually done 2 audaxes this year, one of which was on a geared bike. Though maybe I could squeeze in a DIY before the end of the season...

A SFWC and on track for Randonneur 5000. Just one BP and the only AAA scoring event was the BCM, not that I'm dodging AAAs as I'm going to route check the Mid Sussex Hilly with Martin as a 200km DIY riding from home. Hmm, must be feeling a bit fitter, last year I packed at 50km...
