Audax UK: Challenge yourself to go that bit farther
This Month's Rides
Light up your November with a great audax ride as well as fireworks. Distances from 100 to 300km. In Scotland "Long Dark Teatime of an Audax Soul" captures the feel of the last 50 kilometres of a ride as the days get shorter, and further south there is a chance to go on a "Cheshire Safari" with a hazard you don't usually see on a route sheet - "Beware of the Elephants!"
This Month's Rider

Why would it be hard to ride a tricycle? "Imagine riding a sailing catamaran on the road. Like a catamaran, the trike won’t lean into a turn, but will lift a side up into the air. Simple turns can become tippy, exhilarating stunts". (more at Classic Cycle)
