Wonderful, thanks. I had some of the lines in my head while out riding yesterday!

Now I've sussed how easy it is to get to Mid-Essex by train from East Kent, I'll try to get over for some of these rides this winter. Just had a quick look at the calendar and can see the 3 R's, Stansted Express and Kelvedon Oyster listed, but not the Knights Templar - is that not running again? Are there any other additions to the series?

Kelvedon Oyster is top of my must-do list - even if they are Essex oysters rather than the superior Kentish ones. ;)

The Knights Templar Compasses will most certainly make up the quartet of ACME Anvil Winter Brevets again this season (just need to chase up the promotion to calendar with iddu).  As usual it will be the first Saturday of February - 2nd Feb 2019 @ 10am from the Witham Wetherspoons (Battesford Court).
Be good(y) to see you up this way, citoyen  :thumbsup:

Can't promise I'll make it for all of them, but I'll try!

and as if by magic with a bit of ruffling under the covers, the Knights Templar Compasses ride is on the calendar  :D

Annoyingly, there are engineering works between Liverpool Street and Ingatestone/Billericay/Barking that weekend.  >:(

It should be top of everyone's to do list and Colchester Natives are clearly superior to anything found in lesser counties of England.

I started this series before lockdown hoping to complete this winter with Essex 3Rs and the Kelvedon Oyster. Are either going to run? If not do I get a chance next year?  :)

My 2020 Stansted Airport Express 100km is in the AUK planner and the other three may be too by now. There have been a lot of Covid-Proofing hoops to jump through of late, but I'm getting there ... We can run them as very x-rated events with town centre car-park start (with public toilets), if the Labour Club aren't hiring out theirs. Free controls (please don't all descend on the Wetherspoons as usual!*) and a postal finish. Limit of 50 entries, groups of 6 or fewer etc, but you'll see folks on the road or at controls/feeds - mine will be infos all the way round, but lots of shop/cafe/pub feeding opportunities.

* Witham has several of the usual chains: Greggs, Subway etc and also lots of cafes that will be open well before a 10:00 start.

I'm aware that another organiser is offering GPX validation for their calendar rides (and free control towns otherwise), if that's something you wanted to consider for ACME?

I can't see any of the ACME Winter Series on the Audax UK website.  I have emailed an enquiry...

The planner is where we work on events before they are approved and published. Once an event is published it appears in the audax UK “public” calendar

Bugger; just checked Planner; it looks like 3R is on the same day as a 200 I've entered  :(

The dates in the currently unpublished calendar are:
7th November - Essex 3Rs
5th December - Stansted Express
16th January  - Kelvedon Oyster
13th February - Knights Templar Compasses

Usual 10am start, probably from a car park.

I'm aware that another organiser is offering GPX validation for their calendar rides (and free control towns otherwise), if that's something you wanted to consider for ACME?
That will be Organiser choice to offer per event.
