New custodian - Marlborough Connection 200  / Cheddar Gorge 300 Perms

For my sins I've taken into custody the above perms (from Nik Windle); thanks to Nik for his stewardship over the years.

Entry/info via AUK Perm pages as per normal.

First of all you have to find and kill the current organiser, then inform J Ward Esq.

I'm looking for someone to take over some of my Permanent events. Namely the Severn & Dean 200 from Worcester, Lechlade 200 from Bromsgrove and Droitwich - Towcester 200. If interested please PM me.

Not a new event exactly, but I have revised the La'al Lakeland 100 perm to make it match up to the calendar event.  This has the benefit of a nicer route between Bouth and Gummers How, with no need to cross the A590.  It also removes the faff of having to go into Ambleside for a control.  I just need to do a bit of revising of the instructions/getting the new cards and it will be ready to go within a week or two.  Just nice for keeping the winter AAARTY ticking over.  The May calendar version is unchanged but now has both a 200 & 300(BRM) on the same day with the school gym (with M/F changing areas) available for sleeping before/after.  The new 300 is a real mixture of Lake District, wild and lonely Pennines and bits of Scotland.
'Brant and Slape' 200km out of Windermere, is on the calendar for Oct 2018.  Church Hall the night before the ride.

EWE  Baaa 200 perm now available (http://www.aukweb.net/perms/detail/PH04/)

To quote JW:-

Controls at Kew Bridge / Windsor / Caversham / Lambourn

This is an out and back event that may be ridden starting from either end East-West-East or West-East-West
(or start at an intermediate control and set off in either direction)

What more could you want?

Good-oh. I assume all usual rules apply.

Now that sounds good - I always thought Lambourn would make a decent turning point for West London types.

I now have two perms on my doorstep (this and the Ditchling Devil).

I will file that away as a ride to do and send you some funds.
Right! What's next?

Ooooh. That sounds like a daft idea.  I am in!

Sorry jhob I've only just noticed this. Yes you could start from Ashbourne or, perhaps better for you, Carsington Water Visitor Centre and then the Knockerdown pub if the Vis' Cen' is closed when you get back.

Actually, now I come to think of it, there's no reason why you couldn't start in Cromford  ;D

I've got my new calendar 200km ['The Horsepower', coming up on 7th March 2015] registered as a permanent: 'Horses for Courses', which has proved popular already - 5 brevets completed and a whole lot more in the pipeline...

It would suit a Norfolk [Attleborough/Snetterton] start as well as Suffolk [Lavenham, or Newmarket]. Outwith normal café hours, Attleborough, for a handful of 'bonus' kms will have to replace Snetterton Park [Lady Moe's Café].

On a Dunmow start, the first 50+kms are on treated A/B roads - very much appreciated when we rode at the end of January!

I have stopped accepting new entries for The Dean 300k Permanent. I will continue to process any outstanding cards for the time being.

The new organiser of the Calendar event may want to provide the Perm service as well so watch this space. In the meantime, I have absolutely no issue with people using the route as the basis of a DIY route and expect no notification or donation for doing so. I didn't create the route and, having been the third custodian, feel that the ride is now as much the property of AUKs members and riders as it is mine.

It's with great reluctance, but I'm withdrawing paypal from my perms. The main reason? it is becoming impossible to supply cards to the requirements of some cyclists. I've recently received an order at 19.00 hrs for a ride to start the following morning.The last collection from my local post box has recently been moved forward more than 8 hours, making fast turn around albut impossible.

Couple this with the two-tier system that blank perm cards are supplied on, it is hardly worth my while in continuing.

 
where you have a concentration of power in a few hands, all too frequently men with the mentality of gangsters get control. History has proven that. Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Mine perms (Poor Student / Marlborough Connection / EWE Baaa / Cheddar Gorge)

If you're contemplating riding in next few weeks get an entry in by the 26th Aug - otherwise you'll need to wait until post- 12th Sept.

NEW PERM  http://www.aukweb.net/perms/detail/PL01/
(My first tentative toe dipped into the world of organising)

This is as little overdistance as humanly possible. 
The gmaps walking comes to exactly 200km and the routesheet comes to 204 km

It's not 'flat' (nothing round here is) but it does it's best to avoid any significant lumpiness, so it's useful if you're wanting a quickish winter 200 to keep your RRTY going.

Nominal start is at Fisher's Pond (near Marwell Zoo) but anywhere around the route is acceptable.

If you are coming by train from that London, Start & Finish at Eastleigh (Southwest Trains from Waterloo) is also accepted.
