Club Audax

Self timed/controlled members only DIY Audax running between 1st and 15th August – we will place QR codes at various control points for you to find and scan with the Webscorer app, you will need to download and register to use this app, it’s free.  Find the event with this code 246192 or this URL SWCC DIY AUDAX Aug 2021 | Event registration | Webscorer and enter yourself as an individual or you can enter a team if you want to do it as a group of two or more, please use the email you register for the event with to register for the app with as well, it ties up with your entry when you scan the QR codes during the challenge.

The Control Points (CP’s) are numbered CP1 through CP5 but I’ve set them so you can do them in any order, the challenge here will be planning your route, some guidance/suggestions:

1. The route should be circular where possible, try to limit using the same roads in both directions

2. Your route should start and finish in Swindon, you can get through the CP’s and back in about 65 miles

3. Please avoid main A roads if possible or limit your time on them to just between turns, stay safe

4. Think about limiting climbing/ascent if possible or even adding climbs if that’s your thing, a straight forward loop of 65 miles through the CP’s will give around 4k ft so it’s a challenging route if you do this, a route with less higher gradient climbs might mean a longer ride

5. It’s not a timed race, we will see when you go through the control points as you scan them but the challenge will be about routing/navigation and your overall route, even a wonderful pub lunch picture could sway the jury

6.  We’ll assemble some of the club committee as a jury to figure which was the best route and looked like the most enjoyable, post pics if you can

Here’s where the x5 control points are currently, I have put descriptions in the POI’s to help locate them, you may have to zoom this map out a bit in RwGPS to see them as I haven’t routed between them so it just zooms into the Kingsdown – https://ridewithgps.com/routes/36596668
