Since the Church PCC agreed to support the organisation of these audax events everything has gone really smoothly! The local school are providing the facilities free of charge, members of the church have pulled together with offers of cake and quiche baking. There is a great team to support the organisation, publicity, and on-the-day help. St Francis of Assisi Church in Ingleby Barwick has really stepped out in trust supporting us in this.
I have already received a lot of interest from local riders and from cyclists around the UK. One of the key ways to raise awareness has been the use of online calendars and social media.
Tees and Cake 50km Audax
Keep to the Roads! 100km Audax
Ralph Cross 200km Audax
All these events qualify for Audax UK medals and the Ralph Cross also qualifies for a “Grimpeur” medal for completing a scenic amount of climbing. Tea and Coffee, Quiche and Cake available to all riders at the end, included in the entry fee – and there are toilets and showers at event HQ.
