    Super-Orange Audax Club Bristol, Super-hero kit arrived today.

    Membership No. 505 has meaning: “Step forth with confidence & enthusiasm, take new directions, take chances, expand your horizons & seek new experiences.” Just about sums Audax up. Could also be a play on SOS :whistle:

    I have a fetching Audax Cymru jersey .I keep deluding myself I can get down to the size I was when I bought it..

    “Step forth with confidence & enthusiasm, take new directions, take chances, expand your horizons & seek new experiences.” Sounds a bit like getting lost on a ride.

    You'll need to up your beer intake to be worthy of that jersey.

    I did ‘lost’ on a recent 200. That would have been ok, but 2 riders were following me in ‘confidence’. It was embarrassing.

    I had to buy 1 size up from my usual with the Force GB kit. It comes up very snug. Racefit. As I become a stronger rider I plan to spend more social time in the controls eating cake, so I think I made a good decision. The Force GB garments are really well made and should last many seasons.

    Yes! Those ACBers aren’t shy of a party are they?

    Each rider is entirely responsible for following the route. If they followed you, they should feel embarrassed.

    I did that to an entire team of Italians during my first Paris-Brest-Paris in 95. I stopped and they swept past into the distance. Did I feel guilty?*


    *see above.

    By coincidence my longest "detour" ever on a 200 Audax permanent was on Ian H s Sea and Levels which should weigh in at about 201 but I used all my masterful navigation skills to see much more of Somerset and Dorset than my 2 quid entry entitled me to . Did over 220 after giving up at one point and taking a long food break then realising I still had almost enough time. Finished with at least a minute or two to spare :-)

    PS can strongly recommend Sea and Levels as a ride. Its a coast to coast and back ride. Normally starts in Lyme Regis with Ians permission I started in Clevedon . Theres a 200 and a 150 version.

    Remind me to send you a bill for the extra 20km. ;)

    I did an extra 20km in the midst of a group of Japanese at PBP 2015. I paid a bit more attention to the route after that.
