Support Speaker – Nathan Willett
Audax is the hobby of doing long bike rides within a set time limit. From just 50km to the UK’s premier event, London Edinburgh London of 1540km over 128 hours. This year, 8000 riders will participate in the 1200km Paris Brest Paris – a ride that dates back to 1891 and led to the creation of the Tour de France.
The joy of audax is self-sufficiency, doing something audacious, enjoying the open countryside by day and all through the night… and a surprising quantity of cake.
Nathan will talk about his experiences in Audax riding
