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 spotted. That happened since this morning. The cal still had T&D on 4th and I emailed H&B re rego availability. No maps for the "The Scamper Series" yet.

and I got widers tyres and all, might leave them on and see how I fare.  Was looking forward to dirt roads even if they were muddy but I guess there would be very few riders wanting to do 200km + rain + mud.

The Scamper Series maps for 100km, 150km and 200km are up.

Norwest Boulevard is a racetrack, Showground Road at the shopping center end on a Saturday morning, we should miss most of the mess, please be careful anyway.  Then the fun of the M7, I do that whole section of M7 everyday.  Not so happy about Great Western Highway, lots of utes.

Did my first Audax ride today surf & turf 100km from Terrigal. Hilly but fun

congrats mark.  I missed my ride today, office flooded and had to take care of that, my bag of gear for the ride happened to be on the floor as well.
