Significant places in Audax.
« on: April 03, 2011, 12:42:06 pm »
I wondered where the spirit of Audax is physically most concentrated. The centre of it all is the Brasserie, 'Au Pied de Cochon' in the Les Halles area of Paris. It's where the ACP Fleches start from. Boab would be delighted by the menu, the signature dish is pig's trotters and chips.

Au Pied De Cochon : Brasserie mythique en plein cœur des Halles

In Lancashire the epicentre of all cycling is the Priory cafe in Scorton CYCLISTS - THE PRIORY :: SCORTON :: RESTAURANT & TEA ROOMS :: STOUTS BAR :: ACCOMMODATION :: WEDDINGS :: BUSINESS FACILITIES, but it's not open 24 hours, there's probably a 24 garage somewhere that gets the most visits from Audaxers.

Cafes?  In the Southern counties it has to be a face off between the Tutti Pole in Hungerford and Friar Tuck in Amesbury.  Both are used heavily, both for their location (both towns are passed by or through by many routes) and their fare.

Assuming I qualify, it will be the first time I haven't visited this place in a PBP year.

Thanks to Duncan Peet and Sonya Crawford for some happy memories.

The RHDR Station Cafe in Hythe. Barely a ride in Kent doesn't pass through it.

ISTBC, but I think the cafe at Leyhill is now sadly no more.
where you have a concentration of power in a few hands, all too frequently men with the mentality of gangsters get control. History has proven that. Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.
