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.

Well, we had a lovely ride (or maybe i'm just delirious). Started at 0630 finished 1630. Bloody hot at Mangrove but otherwise, not too bad. Took a few longer breaks to handle the heat, which seemed to work. Uneventful traffic wise. Oh! And we got rained on just at the end. That's one down; eleven to go.

Sounds like a better day than yesterday. Rain ... bliss.

Are you up for the Daddy Gorges next weekend?

I was on the Hunter Valley Randoneer as well.  It was my first Audax ride and I suffered a lot in the heat.  But I finished the 208km!!

Good on you Tony. A tough day for your first audax ride. 

Comment by Michael on November 21, 2011 at 10:04am

Well done Tony, we must figure out who is who on these rides and say G'day.

The good news is that was one of the toughest 200s I've ever done. The heat really does sap your energy. They are usually much more pleasant.

Doing a 200km North Sydney permanent on January 8th 2012, probably The Ferry Long Way Round.  If I fail that I'll have the ride on the 22nd to do.

Comment by Robflyte on December 28, 2011 at 1:37pm

drove the family around the Ferry Long Way round route, they were bored and just a bit amazed anyone would want to ride for so long, wife got sick on St Albans Road, that will be a great stretch on the bike.  Galston Gorge as the final hill could be quite a challenge.  Anyone around to come on Jan 8?

Comment by Farnsy on December 28, 2011 at 4:31pm
I plan to do the Woy Woy ride on Friday. Then maybe the "Brag" ride mid-Jan.
Comment by Michael on December 28, 2011 at 9:18pm

Really want to ride on Friday, but work is not optional. Next one is the Ferry long way round. Should be a goodie.

Comment by Michael S. (Boxhead) on December 29, 2011 at 4:23pm

@robflyte I'm thinking about joining you on the Ferry Long Way Round on the 8th. What's the deal with a permanent? Do I need to email Howard/Bec to say I'm going to do it?
