Audax

Audax is a cycling sport in which riders attempt to cycle long distances within a pre described time limit. Audax is a NON-COMPETITIVE sport: success in an event is measured by its completion, rather than speed. Audax events are usually considerably less expensive to enter than 'Sportive' events.
Cycling UK Lincolnshire hosts an Audax event every year, organised by our local members. Additionally there are other Audax rides that occur in the county.

106km cycling event starting from York Knavesmire, (Racecourse). Controls at Knaresborough Cafes (Get Receipt) and Rally Headquarters, Knavesmire, York., plus 4 information controls.
This ride is based out of York Cycle Rally. A pleasant ride to pretty Knaresborough, with its riverside cafes. Fairly flat route, with a few fairly easy hills in the middle section.
The route passes through the attractive park of National Trust property, Beningbrough Hall. There is a possible second cafe stop at the Home Farm cafe in Beningbrough Hall park (or the NT cafe, but that will mean an admission charge to the Hall for non-NT members!). The route back to York follows lanes and cycle paths of the National Cycle Network.
Any profits will go to York Rally funds.

Date: Saturday 31st August 2024

53km cycling event starting from Carbrooke, near Watton, Norfolk. Controls at Carbrooke., plus 2 information controls.

A ride entirely on 'B' roads or the picturesque wooded lanes of Breckland. It is not 'pancake' flat but there are no demanding hills, making it ideal for newcomers and families.

The outbound route also passes directly by the OB Café at Old Buckenham Country Park.
