    Audax UK website

    I submitted my entry for an Audax two days ago and for some reason the title is appearing in red and there’s a warning triangle near the date in the My Upcoming Events section. The other two audaxes I’ve entered don’t have this. What does it mean? :wacko: Thanks in advance!

    Taking The First Step Towards Audax

    From watching a number of videos about Audax and reading about Audax on a number of sites (including all the great info here on Cyclechat!), I've come to the conclusion that Audaxers are completely mad. In which case, I should fit in well :okay: I've been trying to come up with a plan to get...

    Setting up a 200km "Audax"

    I'm working on a last-ditch attempt to make a 200k ride, possibly Audax before the weather closes towards the end of the month. I've got a 200k ish route worked out that I know about 99% of, and I'm pretty sure I can make in the required 13 hrs or so. I'm not taking this too seriously, as even...

    New YouTube Audax Channel

    I have recently been experimenting with a GoPro camera and iMovie with the intention of showing some of the rides I enter. The short films are mainly about Audax but I have included bikepacking and a hike with my youngest daughter. My motivation for this derives from a podcast by a fellow...

    Dear Audax Agony Aunt: 600km Dilemma

    One of my many cycling ambitions this year was to attempt a 400 and 600km event. I’ll be starting the 400 in a few weeks so that’s that. However going through the AUK calendar, there isn’t a suitable 600 for me. That’s mainly due to single parent admin and school commitments. The only way I...

    My first audax

    It took me 60 years, but I rode my first audax yesterday, just to say I have done one. 200km. I must admit, its not really my thing. But I am aware many people like them. I was under the impression that it would be an individual effort ride. As soon as it started the other 7 riders got into a...

    It is only just over a month until SITD 2019. Those of you who have ridden it before know what to expect. For those of who haven't ... it is 100 km of extremely lumpy roads in beautiful surroundings, joined up by about 15 km of busier and less pretty roads, but don't let them put you off! If...

    England : Kent Fairies Audax : 50km-300km 1st July - Should I be brave?!

    I have been toying with the idea of an Audax for sometime - as I seem to be getting better MPH over longer distance, it is not competitive and it's all down to me I see that theres a local Audax with distances ranging from 50km to 300km! I am looking at doing the 50km (just over 31 miles) as...

    Just Entered My First Audax

    Despite best intentions I never managed it last year, but I've just put in my entry for the London Sightseer in June. A short 105km route, but one which will hopefully give me a gentle introduction into the ways of the audax.

    DIY Audax Events for Idiots Made Easy

(NB Routes and rides would be of the GPS variety) The only trouble is I can’t get my head around some of...

    The perfect Audax bike?

My current bike of choice for these is a Raleigh Maverick Tour which is a Reynolds steel frame and fork, 30-39-50 triple chainset with a 32-12 eight speed cassette. It's shod with...
