About Permanent Audaxes
Permanent audaxes require a greater degree of self-sufficiency
than calendar events and are intended as events for the more
experienced rider, riding alone or with family and friends.
They offer greater flexibility than calendar events as they
can be ridden on any day of your choice once you have received
Brevet and route cards. Permanents are becoming increasingly
popular with riders that prefer to choose their own day of
riding or wish to slot another ride in between calendar events.
You can also choose your day to ride at short-notice and make
best use of fair weather.
If you wish to ride a permanent audax you should enter at
least 4 weeks in advance (this may be reduced at the organiser's
discretion) and you will be sent a brevet card and routesheet.
Before you ride, you must notify the organiser when you intend
to ride the event for insurance purposes. An e-mail or recorded
phone message is sufficient.
On the day, collect evidence for your Brevet Card to ensure
that it is validated. Evidence of passage can include a car
park ticket (for the start); till receipts from shops, cafes,
pubs or garages and bank ATM receipts.After you have ridden,
sign you Brevet Card, attach the evidence of passage and return
it to the organiser within 48 hours. Make sure that the receipts
are securely attached to your card and identified by number,
with a corresponding number in the card control box.
