& Snowdrop Express Audaxes
- Saturday, 25th February 2017
Beacon RCC February Audaxes are an institution on the Audax
calendar, attracting 260 entries each year. The routes use
quiet country roads through rural Worcestershire to Evesham
and Upton. A gritted alternative is also available if icy.
We aim to find easy routes on quiet country roads that
all cyclists could be confident of completing, even on a
chilly winter's day when nobody is at their fittest!
For some riders our event provides a wonderful opportunity
to enjoy rural Worcestershire on a crisp winter's day. For
others it provides the perfect motivation to get out with
friends when they might otherwise be tempted to stay indoors.
In recent years we have also been delighted to welcome several
local racing men and women who used it for steady winter
