Nothing here... I've got FOMO...

And rightly so.

The back cover ... Invisibility cloak?

John Sherlock, international man of mystery.

He was wearing a black gilet over a bright yellow jacket, and my camera couldn't cope with the yellow. Looks as though it just interpolated the background - I never noticed :facepalm:

Dale's photo shows how he looked: https://flic.kr/p/CWAmsS

I was wondering how it happened. Green screening in more glamorous models, double exposures...
Now to actually read it. I've been really enjoying the new look version

Yeah, when Dean sent it to me I was baffled, not seen anything like that before.

EDIT - Just got my copy. Err... yeah... the effort of the volunteers is appreciated but this whole helmet thing can fuck right off. In the bin it goes.

I was interested to read the story about Tom Hatton and his ride to Portugal, as I rode with him on my first ever (or was it second?) 300 and remember him telling me about his friend. Good bloke!

Looks like it was taken on a camera with an HDR mode which takes two frames at different exposure levels and stitches them together to hide the overexposed parts. Which works great as long as the subject isn't moving!

My copy of Arrivée arrived today.
I think it's great!
The invisibility cloak is amusing and the pedant in me can get picky but it's always picky.
Great read. Love the paper quality!

Thanks a million, team!

No, it was the green. All the other photos of riders taken at the same time with the same settings have all arms, heads etc present and correct: https://flic.kr/p/ZVL9Yv

When was the last issue? I've not moved an home and membership is up to date, not had a copy for months.

About 4 weeks ago. Send a mail to membership@audax.uk with your real name and membership number and I will check if you have somehow slipped through the mailing list net.

Does Arrivee exist anywhere online? I seem to have misplaced the latest issue before I got a chance to read it....

Yes, at www.aukweb.net > Arrivee

But I see we're only up to Feb 2017 (135) but as the latest one was 140, it is a few issues behind.   I'm not sure who uploads them.  It looks like it's one of those jobs that has fallen between the cracks of job descriptions.

Coming through a letterbox near you very soon, if it hasn't already landed (assuming I managed to get the mailing list correct of course!)

Arrived today for me and I usually get it 3 or 4 days after the first person posts here about it.

Got mine this morning, just a quick flick through, looks great, plenty in it I'm looking forward to reading.  Some excellent photos and I like that it's moved away from those double page spreads of every rider on an event, which were only slightly interesting if it was you or someone you know.

Mine has arrived.
Only had a cursory glance so far.
I note few Mileaters entered the >10,000 camp.

Are Mileater distances in miles or km? - I assume the former based upon the name but cannot find a definitive answer on the AUK web site. I do see that Pat Kenny did 30468 in 2000 which is jaw dropping regardless of the units of measurement.

Have surnames from T to Z been missed from the mileater mileage list? Only 26 names listed but article says 38.

Re: Arrivée est arrivé!

They shouldn't have been - all 38 names were submitted with the article... My copy isn't here yet so I'll see when it gets here...
