Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to cancel four of our six planned audax rides this season. All Audax UK rides are currently suspended.
We managed to run our Gently Bentley 200 km ride on 15th March, just before the entire country effectively closed down. Our 300, 400, 600 and 1,000 km events will not happen this year. We are still hopeful that normal service will be resumed in time for the Rowlands Ramble 200 on September 6th.
£1,400 donated to charities!
We offered riders the choice of entry fee refund less the PayPal fee, or donate to our chosen charities. We are delighted and touched that most chose the latter, and we have therefore donated the totality of entry fees from the four cancelled rides to Kingston Hospital, RoadPeace, Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust and the Cyclists Defence Fund.
Plans for next year
We plan to run all the events that we had planned this year on the same dates in 2021. We’ll update this page when they are published and open for entries.
Audax UK is the long distance cyclists’ association. These 200 km+ rides are organised under Audax UK rules. Maximum and minimum speeds are usually 15-30 km/h (approx. 9-18 mph), so you don’t have to be a fast rider to complete an Audax event, but it’s important to note that these average speeds include any time off the bike for eating/sleeping etc. You can find out more general information on the comprehensive Audax UK website together with a calendar of upcoming events all around the country.
