Audax

The word “Audax” is Latin for ‘bold’, and was first used in the context of endurance sports towards the end of the 19th century. Audax in relation to cycling is used for long distance cycle events. In the United Kingdom Audax rides are organised by Audax UK which is the foremost long-distance cycling association in the UK. Audax UK oversee the running of long-distance cycling events and using a system of timed checkpoints, validate and record every successful ride.

Members of SCC regularly take part in Audax rides.

“Permanents” Starting in Southport

Permanents are events registered with AUK which can, in most cases, be ridden at any time. They are intended as events for the more experienced rider, riding alone or with family and friends, and not as replacements for calendared rides whose dates have been planned as part of a programme of events.

Permanents starting from Southport are organised by Peter Gawthorne, who can be contacted at [email protected] Cards and route sheets can be obtained from Peter. There are five routes:

PG 01- Southport – Scarborough – Southport 600K

PG 02 – Lakeland 400K
