    Link to a 106km one, organised by my club on the 4th May.
    Mid Cheshire to the bottom of the Wirral and back, with cake stop at the famous Eureka Cafe, (what do you mean you’ve never heard of it! πŸ™‚ )

    Audaxes are the best value cycling events out there, and are (or were) pretty relaxed. The LVIS Audax is a fine, if not finest, example of the breed. πŸ™‚

    Only done one. Not sure if I’d do it again.
    It was the LEL though…

    3 Down Audax just done. 310km, Chalfonts in Buckinghamshire to Fordingbridge in the New Forrest.
    Classed as easy and flat? not quite.
    I learnt that a race ‘type’ bike gets a little uncomfortable over that distance, rear mechs sheer off (two mates abandoned)wheels buckle ( i need to learn how to true one back again) thick bar tape is your friend, Cookie dough milkshake is sublime and a simple Garmin Edge 200 will navigate you over 200 miles without fault.
    And that on top of the New Forrest isn’t somewhere you want to be in sideways rain.

    Popping my Audax cherry next Sunday by attempting the Gourock 200km. Can’t say I’m looking forward to it. Never ridden that far in my life, nor has the ‘friend’ who talked me into it. Naturally I’m getting the miles in today and not sitting at a computer….. 😐

    Popped my 200km cherry yesterday on the Dorset Coast Audax. There’s some proper hills in that there West Dorset. Had a bit of a slump around Axminster but got a 2nd wind around the 105 mile mark and managed to finish the last 30 quite strong.

    Managed round the Gourock 200 yesterday. Pissing rain, blowing a hoolie and almost 8,000ft of climbing but kinda enjoyable all the same. Moreish!

    Absolutely. Last year was a cold bitter Easterly (I only did the 100km last year). Can’t imagine what it would have been like fighting the wind for the last 50 or so miles!

    we seem to have two audax threads on our mountain bike forum this morning πŸ˜€

    Is there a “proper” audax forum anywhere on the web, or will it just take over by stealth. On a tricycle.
