THE SOUTH WEST PENINSULAR CHALLENGE 2018

COMING VERY SOON !

THE SOUTH WEST PENINSULAR CHALLENGE 2017

 

The Challenge is now finished and proved to be quite popular.

After an initial surge of interest with 69 people signing up things settled and a total of 41 people took part with 13 visiting all 20 points to earn platinum certificates.

I joined others on several organised and impromptu rides and managed to visit several points more than once! I am now considered a local at Lovacott. A deliberate mistake that nobody spotted – Sopley Mill is in Hampshire not Dorset!

Certificates have been sent or mailed as appropriate

A huge thanks to Peanut and member Alex Hunt for posting all the pictures, we handled a total of nearly 500.

And a massive thanks to all that took part and supported the event.

The Western section have been in touch to say they are going to run a similar event next year, do we mind.
I am looking forward to trying theirs, predominantly Wales.

I enjoyed setting the challenge and researching the points and have been asked to set another for next year. So watch this space, a new challenge starts 1st January 2018

There were five points in each county:

UPDATES FROM TIM

Update June

With three months still to go we have 60 members signed up - 24 yet to start and 9 that have completed all 20 points - well done to them.
368 pictures have been submitted and hopefully all are visible on the main site -run by Peanut or the Flickr site managed by Alex. Thanks to both for their time and effort.
A gentle reminder, when you submit pictures please rename them. In the form of "Your name.Location title.Point number" - thanks
I am hoping to finish all 20 by the end of August so may see some of you out there
Tim

Update March 10th

At last it has stopped raining and is actually quite warm today.
So far 16 people have made a start on the Challenge and taken 107 photos - well done for braving the weather.
There are several ride outs organised to take in one or more Challenge points so keep checking the calender of events.
We have several new members signed up - welcome to them - it`s not too late if you wish to take part

Look forward to seeing you on a ride sometime

Tim.

____________________________________________________________

Happy New Year to all and thanks for the overwhelming interest in the Challenge. To date 50 entries and many locations already visited. Due to the number of entrants I have had to limit the photos being published on the web site - if all of you complete I would have to deal with over a 1000 pictures. I am sure you understand, please continue to send you pictures and selected ones will be published on the web site and the best one each month will go in the Journal.
Safe riding.

Tim

 

Although not a race a massive well done must go to Western Section member Robert Bilson who has already completed all twenty points ( Jan 2017 )
