  • Autumn Rivers Audax : October 07, 2017

Author Topic: Autumn Rivers 200 Audax - Belbroughton (Worcs) to Ross and Winchcombe and back.  (Read 135 times)

Belbroughton - Bromyard - Ross on Wye - Winchcombe - Belbroughton.

The next Beacon Roads Cycling Club audax is just two months away on Saturday, 7th October. You may be interested.

There are no expensive fees, no headline sponsors, no goodie bags, no numbers, no gold standard times, no broom wagons and no pretending at the finish to have looked into the jaws of hell and survived.

The Autumn Audax is cycling at its best. It’s about a good distance in a day, riding at a sensible pace with good company, travelling through quiet and pleasant countryside in the orange glow of an autumn day before winter arrives.  The first third is relatively hilly as you cross the Abberley Hills and Bromyard Downs, after which the route becomes more gentle. 

The route for this event will change each year. The 2017 Autumn Rivers audax circuits Herefordshire and Worcestershire crossing some wonderful English rivers, passing through tranquil English wooded countryside on route. The route is lumpy for the first third with a few longish climbs but soon eases off after Ross-on-Wye.
