Is there an entry list anywhere? It's always nice to know who's doing what.

I am not comfortable with sharing these lists, data protection.
The results will of course be available on the Audax website.

But I would say that Hopwood Ladies outnumber Beacon members at present.

I'm thinking I'll probably do the 160 but I'm not 100% decided.

As of this morning, Tuesday, there are a total of 165 entrants for the Cotswold Audax.
  • Expedition - 40
    Journey - 46
    Outing Anti Clockwise - 24
    Outing Clockwise - 55
Entries will close on 31st May. No entries on line, postal or on the day will be accepted, so you have a few days left if you intend on entering.

Route sheets and joining instructions will be posted to those who made postal entries (some failed to send appropriately sized SAE's so they may be delayed) next Monday.
Those who entered on line will receive a email containing joining instructions and a copy of the route sheet (as long as they actually put a working email on their forms!)

Joining instructions will also be posted to the website and Facebook page.

Route sheets and gps files are available on the website.

See you all on the 14th June. Let's hope for some nice weather.

Can all riders on the Cotswold Outing please ensure they park bikes in designated places only when visiting the control at Charlecote . Do not lean bikes on cars or any of the items in the garden centre.

Thanks to Pete and all the helpers - another enjoyable Cotswold Audax. Great to see Brian Wilson at Broadway and Mike Kedian at Shutford. I didn't stop long at Broadway (although everybody seemed to be happy there) but Shutford was excellent with it's selection of ready made sandwiches & cakes (managed to avoid the Hooky temptation). Good cycling weather, especially after yesterday, and the great company from Simon Turner.

Thank to Pete and all the helpers on at HQ and the Controls on the Cotswold Outing. An enjoyable day out in the sunshine. Particular thanks to Pete for changing my Route Card from the Journey to the Outing, much appreciated.

Great day out on the bike. Thanks to Andy and Graham for their good company and patience on the hills - it's not a low gear it's a winch!

Thanks to Pete and the controls and the cafe and pubs all excellent.

Not sure it was that seamless :D
The last rider returned at 9.50, I have just got home and feel like I rode all of the routes in one go.
I will post more after a good sleep and at least a day away from all things Audax before beginning the battle with the weird world of getting the Brevets accredited where everything in the Audax organisers handbook seems to be different from what you actually have to do :?:
Thanks to everyone who helped out today you were all great.

Pete, thanks for all of your efforts to produce a successful and enjoyable audax. Interesting to see how far a significant no. of participants had travelled for the event with a healthy turnout of cyclists from Crewe and another guy from London I got talking to.

"The last rider returned at 9.50", so much for your mid afternoon prediction of an early finish then!!

Many thanks to Pete and everyone who helped at HQ and controls, and thanks to Dave and Andy for a great ride.
The 9.50 finish must have succumbed to the Hooky temptation at Shutford. "Just a swift half" and suddenly it's dark outside.
