Just done mine, all in about 45 seconds from receiving the reminder email. Very slick, nice work.

When you're on a five-year membership, you don't get the annual reminders.  I'm hoping we do get them quintannually, though!  :facepalm:  IGMC  ;D
RRTY #6 done; #7 aborted and restarted.

I'm at the end of a 5 year membership. Mike sent an email reminder today.

I need to slough off a surplus household member, and change my name, before I renew.  Not sure whether to bother since I don't seem to have ridden an Audax in, well, ever, if points are the important thing.

EDIT: this was actually intended to be a lightly humorous response, to what I assumed were humorous comments (about AUK points, and an unusual use of the word slough).

I need to slough off a surplus household member, and change my name, before I renew.  Not sure whether to bother since I don't seem to have ridden an Audax in, well, ever, if points are the important thing.
"important" ?? They are the ONLY thing, madam.

Perhaps it's time to slough yourself?

Did mine at work today.
I only ever do 1 year, it seems to be poking fate in the eye to do 5.

Same here. Mine arrived, paid and renewed within 15 minutes.

I decided last year I really ought to show a bit of commitment so went for 5. No email for me just now ...

There's a great magazine and the camaraderie of other long-distance cyclists, which justify my continued membership, even if not been able to cycle since around 2000.

My 5-year term expires at the end of next year and I will renew if I'm not destitute.

Well DO you think that points are the important thing?

It's not an annual reminder though, it's notification of impending membership expiration; so it doesn't matter whether it was a one year or a five year membership.

(Mine was a 5 year membership and renewed for a further 5 years...)

What better way to continue exhibiting social AUKwardness?

*strum*

I think I saw you in an garage forecourt
 drinking milk shakes cold and long
 Smiling and waving and looking so fine
 don't think you knew you were in this song

 And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an audaxer
 And I thought of home and I wanted to get back there
 Our pace, don't race, the way that we talk
 I passed you, on a hill, I thought you might walk

 We've got five years, sent in by paypal
 We've got five years, I must be so mental
 We've got five years, my butt hurts a lot
 We've got five years, that's what we've got
