Audaxes are long-distance cycling challenges where participants attempt to ride lengthier rides (usually over 100km – sometimes over 1,000km!). Rides from 200km upwards score 1 Audax Point per 100km and hilly rides can also count towards Audax Altiitude Award (AAA) points. The points go towards the national trophies as well as various awards that riders can claim by riding the required combinations of events. Find out more about Audaxing generally here. The club has several members who regularly take part in Audax events in the UK and overseas (like the famous Paris-Brest-Paris randonée and London-Edinburgh-London) as well as similar long distance epics including the Transcontinental Race.
Our members often organise DIY Audax rides, usually starting and finishing in Ruislip or Uxbridge/Hillingdon. Look out on our Facebook page or WhatsApp group for details. Members often car share to Calendar Audaxes outside the area.
We also have a series of DIY rides available for Audaxers. One series is for people wanting hilly rides in the Chilterns and they qualify for Audax Altitude Points (AAA). For those seeking flatter terrain, we have a series of standard Audax routes over 100km or 200km.
