Hi All,

This years Audax Club Mid Essex (ACME) Winter Series of 100 km (60 mile) Audax rides are now all in the calendar. As per previous years the rides in Nov, Dec and Feb start from the Weatherspoons in Witham while the January ride starts at the Railway Tavern in Kelvedon.

If you complete all 4 rides within a 2-year period you even earn yourself a nice fabric badge!

If a few people are interested and have any doubts about finding their way around an audax (which are not sign posted) I would be very happy to gather a group to ride around it would roughly be at Saturday Inters pace or above which would give plenty of time for refreshment stops.

There is no need to be a member of Audax UK to ride these events, you do have to pay an extra £3 to cover you for insurance for the event but that still has the most expensive of the 4 events at £8 and you get your brevet card to take home. Entry on the line is also available in most cases as the organisers are aware people like to see what the weather is doing. 

The rides this year are as follows with links to Entry page,
