It is that time of the year and anyone aspiring to pickup the above at the forthcoming Dinner & Presentation Evening should be preparing a list of the 'endurance' events that they have ridden from 1st October last to 30th September (fast approaching).
Last year's Chirk Express is not counted for the current year, as it was calculated in last year.
Points are awarded for all Audax events ridden; note events longer than 300km (approx.) do not count for the extra points that are awarded also depending on the distance and the climbing values for events between 100 and including 300km.
Rides in Sportive events with distances comparable to Audaxes will also be accepted; as will the Langsett and any commercially organised 'off-road' challenge. In respect of the latter, the 3-Peaks cyclo-cross does not count.
The Club organises a season opening Circuit of the Edge. There are 3-Loops rides, excursions to Bishops Castle, and the Wild Wales Challenge, which are all rated, and earn more points than an individual Audax.
Those wishing to be considered for the award are invited to send me their list of rides before the end of October; ideally before the date of the Annual General Meeting.
