Updated 14/2/18 with Announcement from October 2017.

We're a long distance riding club, so naturally our award structure is skewed toward the longer rides. However, statistics show that the majority of Audax Australia members just don't have either the time or capacity to ride a 200km event every month. The PYRR award has now been created with that majority in mind.

To qualify for this award you need to complete one ride of at least 50 km each calendar month from November to October, for a ride season total of not less than 1,200 km.

From 1 November 2017, you can start your challenge in any month for either the Year Round Randonneur or Petit Year Round Randonneur awards. The Petit Year Round Randonneur requires a total of at least 600 km in rides and the ride distance per month is a minimum of 50 km (any distance can be used for a monthly ride provided it is 50 km or greater). Must be 12 consecutive months.

This award encourages consistent riding throughout the year. Nine of the 12 rides required must have been completed in Australia. Riders must apply for this award. This award can be claimed once only per riding season and may not be claimed in the same season as a Year Round Randonneur.

Apart from the award itself, the design of which is still being finalised, there will be other incentives. Everyone is encouraged to register* in a group "pledge of intent". Tell us you're up for the challenge and you can follow your friends progress throughout the year through a PYRR group on Strava and on Facebook.
