Does anyone have a Key for route cards?

I seem to remember the Auk website had one, but I can't find it

Are you not thinking of the facilities key? - http://www.aukweb.net/events/facilitieskey/

The format of the routesheet differs between organisers, but they're fairly self explanatory. What's baffling you?

In what context? Something like 'R@T $ New York'?

Ah, yes that context.

Well, now that I look suitably daft - I'll be off.

Does anyone know where I can find the official route of LEL from last year? I'm looking to ride to Edinburgh next week from London and want to follow it.

I'm not sure they're the official ones, but you can find them on ridewithgps.com using the names of the controls as keywords (e.g. "Loughton StIves").
If you're definitely looking for the official ones, PM me and I'll attach them to you

Want to register a new Perm but the form doesn't seem to be working - is it just me or is it a problem with the website?

https://www.cyclingnewforest.org/auk-perm-proforma.html

(I'm on a Mac and have tried both Chrome and Safari. Have also emailed PermSec.)

ETA: sorted. PermSec has sent me a new link - direct to the form itself rather than embedded in a web page - and it works fine.

Apparently there was an article in Arrivée on riding in The Alps by Bob Bialek. Does anyone know which issue it was in?

I've paid for some virtual brevets to do some DIYs. Should I get some sort of acknowledgement from the organisor/validator or do I just assume I've got them and send in an entry form with a route?

Just send your DIY entry in and the org can see how many you've got. If you send an entry in once you've run out, they will remind you to "top up" with some more.

On the Aukweb site, is there any information about minimum speeds for certain distances? I.e. How it drops when you go above a certain distance etc.

Edit - Nevermind. It's in the regulations, subsection 9.7.1  :thumbsup:

According to Bob, he's never ridden in the Alps.

Organisers/Controllers,

Where's a good place to get stamps that are suitable for marking brevet cards?

I've had a look at places like Rymans but haven't found anything I really like so far.

Vistaprint/123print do custom or if you want more weird try Etsy.

Ooh, hadn't thought of Etsy - good suggestion, thanks!

Having done a bit more searching, I think the reason I've not been able to find what I want is that I've been looking for the wrong thing. Searching for "loyalty card stamps" turns up lots of promising results.

(Have consulted all the various FAQ pages and the AUK Regs but can’t find an answer to this one)

I have a vague memory that if a multi-day ride crosses an official time boundary then there’s a degree of latitude allowed in terms of the date to which it gets officially allocated - but an equally vaguely memory suggests that this might just be an RRtY thing rather than a points table and SR thing.

What I have in mind is starting a 500 or 600 DIY on Sunday 30 September 2018 and completing the ride the following day, Monday 1 October.

Subject to declaring it as my intention in advance, would I be allowed to have the ride and accompanying points attributed to the official 2018-2019 points table rather than the 2017-2018 table? Or is this flexibility limited to RRtY attribution only? (Or have I just dreamt up the whole thing.)

TIA
