Help on an Audax in the East Midlands
« on: September 17, 2018, 12:52:26 am »
I am reviving a 300K Audax, the Rutland Weekend, that I last ran in 2014. It runs from Baldock in Herts to Bottesford which is East of Nottingham, and back, of course. I would like to set up a reverse event for Midlanders to travel south, using an almost identical route.

The events will be basic, X-rated and intended as PBP shake-downs. I will organise the event going south, but I will need someone to hand out brevets at the start - they can set off with the other riders if they want to do the event.

Anyone happy to help? Please message me

If you were to add a third option of starting in the middle (e.g. Oundle) then I could probably help ;D

Depending on the date, I might be available, might also be tempted to ride.

Again, depending on the date, I may be able to help. I live in Bingham which is about 8 miles from Bottesford, so it's very local to me. I probably wouldn't ride it.

Thanks for all the kind offers so far, both in the topic and by PM. It will be the 27th of July or 3rd August. Helper availability might influence this.

Bottesford isn't too far from me and, I can ride across to there easily. I might also be tempted to ride, please keep me in the loop with info etc.
