Audax Riders

Audax rides are non-competitive long distance tours by bicycle, called "randonnees". The challenge of Audax is not in racing, but in riding at your own pace. Rides are open to all reasonably fit riders - non-Audax members are most welcome to join.

for anyone considering the Wing It West rides this weekend, here is an updated document link.

18 riders so far for Wing it West on Sunday, not to late to enter BTW, probably close entries at 4pm Saturday.

I have suggested that baa baa's photo of 10 May could be a good model for a new range of Audax club kit and could double as Tweed Ride attire. Neil especially would look stunning in this style.

no reason you can't wear that now, looks like a helmet hiding under those caps. Raises a question, if hats were fashionable now would helmet wearing still be considered the barrier to mass cycling in Australia? Do we complain of helmets because we have trouble saying car drivers are f#cked in this country?

That's very good, makes we wish I liked mountains, if a bunch of toy like cyclists can do it maybe so could I?

(What number did I do?!? I WON THE RAID PROVENCE EXTREME! I Win The Raid Provence! 580 km 21h24. Incredible race!)

Not bad. Well for my sunday I rode to the shops  for bread, fruit and veg, (about 2 x 1/2  pannier) on the wife's size small step thru-sit up. About 3/4 of a km and this bloke looks fresher than I do.

I went to the NSW Audax awards night Wednesday evening where some outstanding (maybe also slightly insane) long distance riding was recognised together with some lesser efforts that might grow into something bigger.

The usual suspects celebrated Audax bike riding cumulative distances over a year that many car drivers don't achieve in their vehicles and recipients of the Year Round Randonneur medal (including Rob Berry) demonstrating sustained effort worthy of the great looking medal.

The appointment of the new National Awards Secretary was announced and it would be close to the mark to say SC Audax group members should be entitled to some direct insights into this important role.

What has been rightly described as my warm up rides scored a nice cloth patch (beer coaster?). A lot of riders who qualified for recognition but did not apply for awards but are recognised nonetheless.

Was a good night, a Paris-Brest-Paris information night is promised in October and Christmas function in December.

nice patch and well done on the over 1000km ridden.

Nice work Bill. Congratulations.

I attended a previous awards night. It's interesting to hear what different people achieve, all juggling other responsibilities while squeezing in Audax rides. Some people do a (crazy? impressively?) large amount of Audax miles. The Year Round Randonneur seems to be, rightly, held in high regard.

I was there on Wednesday night also but left before the awards section of the evening started. Sorry I didn't say Hi. I probably saw you but didn't recognise you. Par for the course for me.  :-)
