Welcome!

Audax Australia Cycling Club is a non-profit national cycling organisation specialising in rides from 50 to 1200 km.

Audax events are not races but are about extending your own boundaries and experiencing great personal achievements. Audax rides enable cyclists of any ability to set and achieve their riding goals. This spirit of achievement is what attracts so many riders to Audax. The time limits required to complete events are generous, so Audax events are within the abilities of a wide variety of cyclists, whether they are from a touring, racing, recreational or commuting background.

Audax events are held in most parts of Australia, and you will be made very welcome when participating in rides in your own or other Regions. Rides are open to all reasonably fit riders – and non-Audax members are most welcome to join our friendly and supportive participants.

The word Audax comes from the Latin for bold or courageous. In 1897 a group of Italian cyclists rode 200 km between sunrise and sunset, and became known as “les Audacieux”. The most famous Audax ride of the current era is the Paris-Brest-Paris, a 1200km event with a 90 hour time limit which attracts in excess of 5000 riders from all over the world to France every four years.

With a choice of three distances (1200, 1000 or 200 km) the fifth edition of the Perth – Albany – Perth randonnee has something for everyone.

 

PAP2014 STARTS on Monday 6 October at 5am

 

The Swan River foreshore at South Perth with its backdrop of the city lights is the departure point for riders who will head south along a 70 km cycle path before taking to the roads. Over the next four days, they will visit the best that the southwest has to offer: forests, vineyards, farmlands and the magnificent Southern Ocean coast.

The first overnight stop is amongst the tall timber forests at Nannup or Pemberton and the second night will be spent at Albany, a port on King George Sound, the location of Australia’s last whaling station. Next morning riders will climb Mt Clarence for a spectacular sunrise before turning inland and starting the long trip back to Perth.

The journey to the last overnight stop at Wagin or Williams features the spectacular scenery of the Stirling and Porongurup Ranges and passes through wheat farms and sheep grazing country. Clear dark skies and a full moon ensure that the Milky Way is at its brilliant best.

The final 200 km has its share of ups and downs before riders take once again to the cycle path and turn their wheels towards the final checkpoint at South Perth Bowling Club.

Over the coming months we will be providing updates as we progress the organisation of the event, posting information via this webpage, the PAP 2014 Facebook Group, and the official Audax Australia Twitter account @AudaxOz #PAP2014.

We look forward to seeing you in October for a fantastic 5th edition of Perth-Albany-Perth.
