This is Audax
« on: November 27, 2019, 07:57:52 pm »
I've had an amazing time doing Audax events since I joined back in January 2018, I've done a little montage of the sights and scenes of a few rides from the course of the last year and a bit.  If you've ever considered riding long distance it's an amazing experience you get to visit some wonderful places, roads and routes you would never otherwise dream of visiting.  So I leave a link below, it's only a short video - I hope I inspire someone to join or at least sample audax, thanks for watching.

Nice little video – even some people and places I know! Yeah, maybe I should take it up again... As a total aside, I've just realized your username is "djrikki" – presumably indicating you are a DJ? – I'd always read it with garbled eyes as "Dr Jikki".  :D :facepalm:
The unwilling rider and the one who leaves each control in turn without reluctance, with no desire to come back, obviously cannot be making the same journey, even though their brevets are identical.

Very good - the short clips short keeps it moving.  It sent me in search of the Audax "films" - made up of stills at half-second intervals - I made of the Audaxes I ran between 2008 & 2013, but they seem to have gone down the tubes.  Shame.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

You capture the feel of an Audax ride well, and I recognise some of the places/riders.
We need all the encouragement we can get to continue riding at this time of year!

I was a DJ for over 16 years until I discovered the joy of cycling; it is no longer possible for me to enjoy both.

Thanks for the kind comments.
