Blowingstone-White Horse 103km Audax 3*
Leader:
Nick Dunton
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
Village Hall Uffington
Description:
Now in it's 5th year, this popular but tough 100km audax is organized by Cycling UK Wantage. Note the event is run under Audax UK regulations and there is a [small] fee payable if you want to ride. There will not be a led ride. While we hope to be able to accept entries on the day, it would help enormously if you can pre-enter via the Audax UK website, and pay via PayPal. That way, you also receive the route description ahead of time and can prepare, and we can ensure there is enough cake at the finish for everyone!

Blowingstone-Boomerang 53km Audax 2*
Leader:
Nick Dunton
Start Time:
10:30 am
Start Location:
Village Hall Uffington
Description:
New for this year will be the Blowingstone-Boomerang Audax, a 53km event aimed at those who do not want to tackle the full route. This still includes Blowingstone hill but has considerable less climbing than the main event and is designed to encourage more local riders to participate.

Note the event is run under Audax UK regulations and there is a [small] fee payable if you want to ride. There will not be a led ride. While we hope to be able to accept entries on the day, it would help enormously if you can pre-enter via the Audax UK website, and pay via PayPal. That way, you also receive the route description ahead of time and can prepare, and we can ensure there is enough cake at the finish for everyone!

Report:
Perfect cycling weather! A reasonable turnout for this new event: 17 entries, all finished safely within the time limit. Good to see some riders trying Audax for the first time. And to see Hugo back on his bike.
