The Watership Down 100

You forget.  You forget the rituals around audaxing.

  • You forget that you shouldn't rely on just one alarm clock.
  • You forget that putting the bike flat in the car with the full water bottle in the cage is bad news.
  • You forget that you need a pencil or pen with you.
  • You forget that the right hand side pocket is where you should always put your camera.
  • You forget that the light brackets are where the winter mudguards should go.
  • You forget that taking a change of clothes for after the ride is a good idea.

But you don't forget that audax riding is just brilliant.

  • You don't forget the warm welcome you'll get when entering the HQ hall.
  • You don't forget the wonderful landscapes in Britain.
  • You don't forget that the organisers work out the best route possible.
  • You don't forget that there will be talk about LEL.
  • You don't forget that the brevet card must be signed at the end.
  • You don't forget that great feeling when you get home.
  • You don't forget to enter the next ride
