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.

"Thanks for these links and info Bill. Not carrying all the gear for cooking etc this time or more water than for a day's riding but I'm interested in setting myself up so I can do more adventurous rides in future."

Setting up cyclo-cross bike for a tour

Help! Doing a solo off-road tour at short notice on my cyclo-cross bike (Cellbike Brunswick) that lacks some touring essentials. Any recommendations for navigation (Garmin? what kind?), luggage carriage (maybe a T-ONE CAPA Rear Rack Carrier Bag and detachable alloy rack - is that tough enough for off-road?) and any innovative water carrying solutions? My touring knowledge is, like, 30 years out of date. So very keen to hear any and all suggestions. See More

"Thanks Bob. Yes I'd heard about the Camperdown club and we'd love to have something similar in Artarmon, including the community gardens, but on a more modest scale."

"The Camperdown Bowling Club has been converted to a cafe/restaurant with vegetable gardens, play areas etc, with a small takeaway coffee kiosk out the front. I think there is an art gallery attached. Very popular, and a lot come on foot, although…"

Artarmon Bowling Club-house - what next?

Posted on September 16, 2017 at 5:23pm 0 Comments

I'm on a Citizens Panel to make recommendations on the future of the clubhouse of the former Artarmon Bowling Club, next to the bike path through Artarmon Reserve. The Club sold the site cheaply to council to be a dedicated recreation area. The grounds are proposed to be re-landscaped with community gardens, play and picnic spaces etc with access from the bike path. The panel has already decided that uses of the site should be low impact, compatible with multiple uses by different…
