Newsletter – June 14, 2018

Not much Audax news from me just now although I see plenty has been happening. Sadly I’m in work mode with little opportunity to be out and about and catching up on whats been going down. I can’t even regale you with tales of my own, although I might have some news to share in the next newsletter (he said mysteriously).

There’s been some cracking rides the past few weeks. In particular the FNQ 600 which provided entertainment for days for the 4 hardy souls who signed up. You can read more about that below. I attempted the Bedrock and maintained my 100% fail rate. Leonie Lucas tackled the BVRT and of course the Fassifern Folly happened and looked quite splendid. I’m sadly short of ride reports, but I heard folks had an awesome time.

Another busy couple of weeks with lots going on. In the recent Downs and Back ride, Brian reported All 9 riders completed the course. For 5 of the riders this was their first 600 km they have completed. Sensational effort. The Eight Tablelands Towns event attracted 110 riders… which is an amazing effort on the part of all concerned. Can you imagine 110 cyclists rolling into town?

The 2018 Oppy has been a great success with some interesting tales from the road and a raft of pictures for you to enjoy.

Don’t forget to check out the upcoming events and if you are planning to attend the 6 Pack, get onto it now as applications close soon.

In the past two weeks it’s become appreciably cooler here in Brisbane earlier in the morning with enough clear weather to convince even the least audacious to venture out on their velocipede. And so I did, and you can read about it below. I’ve also provided the most current Oppy information including where to watch the spots, and where you need to be at about 0700 this Sunday to cheer the finishers home and hear their tales from the road first hand.

Many of our bikes are tweaked to suit our needs and personal preferences. I’ve prepared a summary on the mods performed to my bike which won’t take long to read, but there is some additional information buried in links within the text which probably will.

Did I mention the Oppy is on this Sunday. Whether you’re riding, spotwatching or supporting, enjoy.

What about the weather?? It’s been insanely hot when it’s not been bucketing down making the riding a challenge. Nonetheless, the hardier folks have lined up to take on recent brevets. I’m looking forward to a cool change when I hope we might see even more people line up for rides, including myself.

Don’t forget to send me your ride reports and any other newsworthy items. Please send them here: audaxqld@gmail.com
