Permanents


Many of the West Yorkshire Audax events are now available as “Permanent” events that can be ridden at any time of the year. Most of the routes are identical to those of the calendar events. You will be riding the route on your own (or with friends), and collecting receipts, stamps or answering information questions as ‘proof of passage’. You can get route details from the events calendar page, and enter by linking to the Audax UK site for an entry form.

Entry fee is now £3.00. Please use a  standard Audax UK entry form and enclose 2 stamped addressed envelopes with your entry.

The links below got to the respective pages on the Audax Website.
