If you love recreational cycling, and enjoy the prospect of an all-day ride, then the audax may be just what you need. Audax technically means "daring" or "courage", but you usually won't need either of these to complete one. In these pages we explore the background and options for this well-established brand of long-distance cycling, seeing what it takes to ride it - and more importantly, to enjoy it!

A word of warning: The audax experience is very much an individual thing, and everything that you read here will be largely from my perspective. I come from a competitive cycling background and don't dwell on much the culture and enjoyment factor of audaxes. It's up to you to decide and discover what works best for you!
