News

At the Annual General Meeting in January, 2016, some ride analysis from the 2014-15 season was presented. Analysis was performed by Garry Armsworth and Russell Noble - big thanks to Garry who's annual analysis of the data is very useful and provides a good insight into who's riding, where and when. 

You can download Garry's 2014-15 Ride Analsysis as a PDF.

President's Report Data

From the President's Report here is a subset of data. Note this data varies a little from Garry's but is close. The major point was looking at the Top 10 Rides by Number of Homologations, and the number of our Top 10 rides that are predominantly non-members.

Audax Australia transitioned to a new membership system on Sunday 27th of September 2015. 

The system allows Members to update their own records. It allows joining and renewals of Individual and Family Memberships with much less manual work for our Membership Secretary. It provides better contact to Members through integrated e-mail utilities and in the future will provide Members access to brevet/ride history and event registration.

For new Members joining after December, the membership price will be calculated on a daily pro-rata basis (number of days remaining in the Audax calendar year). New Members joining in October this year will receive up to 13 months membership for the price of 12 months, so now is the time to encourage friends to join.

Applications for Australian Randonneur (lifetime total) and Ultra Randonneur are due by 31st of October, 2015. Other Australian award applications are due by 31st of December, 2015.

Please note the due dates and applications must be submitted electronically using the forms which can be downloaded from www.audax.org.au/awards
