  1. We left with 6 eager riders perfectly on time.

  2. Finding a good rhythm early, we got to the next stop 2 minutes ahead of schedule. 

  3. By the second stop, we were down to 5 riders but still up 2 minutes, possibly thanks to our first rolling natural break! The wind was startin...

I don’t know if any of this is true. This is just what I remember from what I was told over the years. But it’s not history. This is firsthand knowledge. My friend’s dad, who was supposedly a pretty successful amateur bike racer in his day, used to sit around and t...

We did No. 9 within our predetermined time limit, but only by 4 minutes... We started with 5 and finished 5.  And that's good. But I'm glad to say, we still have a lot to learn about riding audax.

Here are some things I think we learned this week:

  • You develop effective r...
