Sportives are like sociable, amateur timed events of various levels of difficulty. (the ones we support are very varied and non-competitive) and often raise funds for charity. Audaxes are events (not races), with the primary objective to ‘get round’. There are some time limits, but Self-sufficiency is the key. Your ‘brevet card’ is stamped at intermediate checkpoints and at the finish, and serves as a certificate of their achievement. These are some of our recommendations. Please share your favourite events on our Facebook page so we can ride together and represent our fantastic club.
