Audax’s ridden

Audax is a cycling sport in which participants attempt to cycle long distances within pre-defined time limits. Audax is a non-competitive sport: success in an event is measured by its completion and completion of the Brevet which is handed out at the start of the ride. You have to fill out answers to the various questions (eg Name of roads, signpost distances etc) Plus stop at various control points which can only be accessed between times specified on The Brevet card.

The minimum overall speeds (including rest, food & sleeping) are:

for events registered as 200 to 600 km – set by the organiser within the range 14.3 to 15 kph (8.9 to 9.4mph)
for events registered as 700 to 1200 km – 13.3 kph (8.3mph).
for events registered as 1300 to 1800 km – 12 kph (7.5mph)
for events registered as 1900 to 2400 km – 10 kph (6.3mph)
for events registered as 2500 km and over – 8.3 kph (5.2mph)

The maximum speed for the whole or any part of an event is set by the organiser at any speed acceptable to AUK up to 30kph (18.75mph)
