AUDAX – LONG DISTANCE RIDES OPEN TO ALL
No expensive fees, no headline sponsors, no goodie bags, no numbers, no gold standard times, no broom wagons and no pretending at the finish to have looked into the jaws of hell and survived. Participants cycle a long distance within set time limits with success measured in completion rather than speed.
Several hundred audaxes take place across the UK each year and Droitwich CC is pleased to be hosting two for the first time in 2022.
Both events are ‘x-rated’ or basic event in Audax UK terminology. In other words, café stops on route where riders can eat cake, drink copious amounts of coffee and discuss the next hill. When you have completed the ride, you just need to send your proofs of passage to the organiser for validation by Audax UK.
