The Audax Conundrum in the UK…

Mathew Mitchell

My name is Mathew Mitchell, 30 from Staffordshire, UK. Over the last few years I've got more and more into cycling, from the first innocent Sportive events to Audaxes, Go-Races, British Cycling racing and now Time Trials.

    I met an audaxer once while out on my bike. we chatted whilst going up quite a big hill so he was in great shape and he was telling me about 600km rides and sleeping on the floors of village halls for a couple of hours over a weekend, before we parted ways and he carried on with his 150km sunday recovery ride. audaxers are as hard as nails!

    • That’s made me think of my own random meeting cycling over Welsh hills – caught up with a 70 year old who told me about how he’d done London Edinburgh London 5 and a half times (half because his knee died on that one) and now at 70 was riding his first carbon bike and he was loving it.
      I hope I’ve accomplished anything close to that by the time I’m 70! They’re definitely hardcore!
