Audaxes

EWCC is affiliated to Audax United Kingdom, the internationally recognised long-distance cycling association in the UK. Usually referred to as Audax UK or AUK, it was established in 1976. AUK oversees the running of self-supported long-distance cycling events, and, using a system of timed checkpoints, validates and records every successful ride.

The ‘classic’ distances for AUK events are 200km, 300km, 400km and 600km. However, AUK aims to have something for everybody and events start from 50km (about 32 miles) and go all the way up to 1400km (about 875 miles), and even this is not the limit because there are set routes, known as ‘Permanents’, which span the length and breadth of the country and go up to 3200km.

All events can be entered through the AUK website: http://www.aukweb.net/events/.

Exeter Wheelers CC offers its own Super Randonneu (SR) award for anyone completing a SR series of club events. Past recipients are listed here.

Mudguards are not required for any of these events. Use whatever bike suits you. If you don’t want to follow a routesheet then download the GPS file. You will need to be fit and self-sufficient. Most of these events, especially the longer ones, are hard. You should be an experienced cyclist with both fitness and stamina. There is a minimum speed of 15kph for all the events of 200km and above.
