Challenge yourself to go that bit farther...

Well done to all LEL Riders!

 

The 2022 London-Edinburgh-London riders departed on 07 August, with over 1900 riders entered from many nations. Congratulations to all those who completed the ride, and commiserations to those who were beaten back by the heat - this must have been the hottest LEL ever! And thanks to all the volunteers who made the event a great success.

 


PBP 2023

If LEL has given you an appetite for more, the next classic ride is Paris-Brest-Paris 2023, 1200km across northern France, with more than 5000 riders and a tremendous atmosphere as the French villagers turn out in droves to support the event (more free coffee and crepes than you will ever need!). We've added some details about entering - which is a little more complex as you have to qualify by completing a series of rides first - here.


It's not just for the weekend...

Most of our calendar rides are at the weekend, but we also have some mid-week events for those who are free at other times. For example the Mid-Week Grimpeur series in the Peak District is good if you like short but steep.

To find more, go to the calendar and go to advanced options and choose "weekday". And, we also offer permanent events and DIYs which you can do any time on your own


New Medals and Badges are here!

New-style distance badges are now available from the Medals and Badges store - these are for rides completed in the 2022 season. We also have a new format - as well as traditional cloth badges for your Carradice, and medals, you can now get a fridge magnet to impress your household. If it's barred from the fridge you can of course choose any other steel surface, but maybe not your 531 tubing...

Rider of the Month

the Devon Delight.
Here's Audax UK member Geoffrey Sharpe, celebrating his 300th Randonnée (the Devon Delight) in the best Audax style - with a cake!
Eighty year old Geoff didn't start Audax rides until he was 52 so that's pretty good going. During those rides he's completed an SR series as well - and hopefully will be celebrating many more successes in the future.
