Accessible Audaxes from London, both easy access by car, train, tube or cycles and accessible to all types of riders (GPX & Routesheet supplied). May be a good test ride for anyone doing Ride London with 3 main climbs and some fast flat sections..
The 200km event has 3 longer climbs and a few lumps, whilst the 100km event has 2 longer climbs and its own lumps on the way back after leaving the longer route just after Wendover Woods, at around 50km.
The long route passes several locations from the Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang film, plus the National Shooting Centre for some audible 'Bang, Bang'. The shorter route, however, heads home past the Roald Dahl Museum at Great Missenden (Dahl wrote the screenplay to the film, coincidentally).
The start and finish venue is at Wealdstone FC's ground at Grosvenor Vale in Ruislip, Ruislip Social Club is also located there. Some simple food at the start and finish is included in the £9 entry price and the bar will be open at the finish!
Non Audax UK members are required to pay a £2 temporary membership fee for the day, which includes insurance.
