    Just remember to enter at least 2 weeks before, this is not like a RR where you can see what the weather is doing then turn up and enter on the line.

    After debating this or the downhill, i think this ride would be more productive towards Llanberris training. So i have decided, thats it, i am in. Entry form has gone off and Dave Coley has confirmed he will accept my late entry.

    I can hear the groans from you quick guys already ๐Ÿ™„ , don’t worry though, i dont expect you to hang around, I will be more than happy plodding round on my own if i cant keep the pace.

    Jim, audaxes generally break into a few groups and you find a group that suits your pace. Also you may end up riding with a few groups through the day as cafe stops mix it up a bit. Yes there are always the guys who want to thrash it, particularly this time of year; but there are also ones who want to go steadier, especially over 200k.

    The name of the game is go at your own pace. All of you are more than capable of completing in the time. Just make sure you have gear to stay warm, lights and a good basic tool kit there will be no support. I look forward to stamping your cards as you go through.

    Looks like you 2 riding and me sat in a car controlling. To my knowledge 3 in an audax matches the best total I have witnessed. Those with more history in the club may know better.

    Im not sure that “1 sat in the car controlling” constitutes “partaking” LOL.

    Having done a feed in the past in a 24 hr, I think the “helpers” deserve more Kudos than the riders !! Bloo.d cold !

    Looks like it is warming up nicely for Sunday – might not need to keep the engine running to keep warm.
