Been away and returned to find quite a few emails

Absolutely fine to enter still

I could probably get a route and details out by 1st class if people get entries in ASAP

Alternatively just send in form and one SAE to return brevet card

Details / route available for download here

http://www.cliftoncc.org/challen/audax/tanhill

If you are unable to get an entry in and absolutely have to enter on the line.

Entries on the line ONLY if you bring along completed form, print off your own route and ideally provide an SAE to return brevet card!

Any questions i can be contacted on 01904 621550

And AAA (climbing) points have been upped

Now 1.75

Officially we are 1750m of climbing but i think this was based on the mid section from days when only this part qualified

See what the Garmins produce Sunday!

That PGW2TD ride had something like 3000+m of climbing apparently, and I'm sure the tan hill route is just as hilly as it :s

Either way, compared to last year, my ride for Tan Hill and PGW2TD where both around the 10,000ft+ mark. Although oddly enough this year the PGW2YD was only around 8900 despite being the same route.

[audax geek hat on]
According to AUK rules, a 200km ride requires more climbing than the Tan Hill has in order to qualify for AAA (Audax Altitude Award a.k.a. climbing points), I think the figure is 2500m. However, a 100km section of the ride can qualify for points by itself, the lower limit being 1500m climbing. Our steep middle section has this, so we get the points for that and ignore the flat bits at either end.

It should certainly make a nice change from the flatness and headwinds of York-Cambridge-York last weekend, as long as my knees have recovered by then!

Fantastic route and perfect weather!

A huge thanks to organisers and fellow riders.

Off for a soak in the bath... Wake me up when it's time to go to bed

Very nice day out that, on my way home I decided to add some more miles in to beat my longest distance of 175 on the PGW2TD, so did 181 miles today.

Rats - I thought I was "excessive" with 167m.

Well anything over 140 miles is nuts really :p But I love eating miles just as much as I love eating food :p
