This event (and the End of Summertime) used to be AudaxUK events - is that not the case now? I rode both for about 3 years on the trot about 6 years ago.

Well it's not listed on the Audax UK events pages so I've no idea if it being under the CUK 'challenge rides' whether that has changed matters.
I haven't done one in a while and considering the 100 though more likely the 60 given how my health has been and how much actual riding I've done in the last 18 months!

They stopped doing them as Audax events a few years ago. I'm not sure of the whys and wherefores. Means a different entry system, but on the day it's much the same.

I notice there's no longer a 210km event, and the long-established routes have changed. Should be good though. I'm hoping I can make it, though Sundays aren't great for me.

I know that to do both Audax and CUK challenge rides required two sets of results to be produced which must have been a pain. The first non-audax one came about due to an administrative error brought about by some external circumstances (I gather AUK wasn't too helpful). I can't remember if any since then have been AUK.
