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.

I thought processing of Brevet cards had been delegated to the colonies these days and that a supply of Brevet numbers was allocated to each region affiliated with ACP, one to be applied to each card. N'est-ce pas?

Only for rides less than 200km, otherwise they are sent to Paris. BTW Australia was not a French Colony!

Comment by Garry Armsworth on August 12, 2013 at 5:12pm

The brevet cards aren't actually sent to Paris, just a spreadsheet with the results; homologation numbers are returned by email with the stickers following by snail mail.  Yes, it would appear that the BRM brevet secretary hasn't sent out stickers received back from France for a few months.  Everyone does the admin stuff in their spare time so a wait is usual but I'd expect we'd get the outstanding ones very soon.

Yep. The cards always arrive, eventually. Usually just in time to remind you it's time for another tilt at an endurance ride.

It's best to keep a separate record of the rides (strava, spreadsheet etc) you have done if you expect to apply for any awards at the end of the audax year.

Australie pas une colonie française? C'est unpossible!

Comment by Bill Parker on August 12, 2013 at 8:23pm
I have copies of the cards and records of the rides but if I lost these you would only have to ask my diminishing (for some reason) circle of friends who have heard the Audax ride stories so many times now they can all recite them word for word.

Anyone else doing Muswellbrook this weekend, I like the idea of getting further away from Sydney for some rides, spread my big checkpoint purchases around the State, bike lead rural recovery? Doing Cowra in September too.

I'm not sure how Audax works.  I joined this group because I was interested in some of the routes that were used and thought that I might be able to incorporate them in some of my tours.

Does Audax go on gravel roads, or is it limited to bitumen?

Comment by Rob Berry on August 14, 2013 at 2:38pm

It goes everywhere, mainly bitumen, but there are a growing number of "Tar and Dirt" rides. A bunch of us did a ride a few months back which had something like 60km of gravel in the 200km.

No to Muswellbrook, Bill. I'll be doing Daddy Gorge as a permanent in a fortnight before attempting my first 600 on the 31st.
