The Audax Conundrum in the UK…

Mathew Mitchell

My name is Mathew Mitchell, 30-something 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!
