TWO MONTHS UNTIL OUR SOUTH SALOPIAN 200KM AUDAX EVENT - 5th OCTOBER.

Post by Philip Whiteman » 05 Aug 2019 10:54

AN INVITE TO ALL TO ENTER THE BEACON'S NEXT AUDAX ON 5TH OCTOBER.

Start/Finish: Belbroughton
Route: Belbroughton - Tenbury - Bishops Castle - Ironbridge and back to Belbroughton.

No expensive fees, no headline sponsors, no goodie bags, no numbers, no gold standard times, no broom wagons and no pretending at the finish to have looked into the jaws of hell and survived.

We will be sending an army of cyclists over the Dyke into the badlands of The Marches borderlands. Riders will experience the charming countryside of the Teme Valley before swinging northwards through Marches via Hopton Castle to reach the quaint market town and of Bishops Castle. Overall, the route is not too hilly but there is a stiff climb over northern extremity of The Long Mynd, after which life returns comfortable again. After the ruling descent from the Stretton Hills along the Roman Road, you will soon arrive at historic Coalbrookdale and its famous Ironbridge. After a sharp pull out of Coalport, it is a gentle return stage to Belbroughton via Kinver.

The route is considerably gentler than the Kidderminster Killer and does not attract any AUK Altitude Award points.

Riders simply stop at the controls and collect evidence of proof of passages (an ATM, till or café receipt) and answer information questions shown in their brevet card – just to make sure that everyone’s ride can be validated as a true audax at the end of the day. Control points are located in towns where plenty of cafes and shops can be found.
