Bicycling magazine

Cool. We got mentioned. Here it is. Bicycling Sept-2015. Plus there’s an online extra, titled Ultra Riders: The Lengths They Will Go To. Have a look at bicycling.co.za/ultra.

We’ll also add something on the 2015 PBP. But this isn’t just about Paris. It’s about everyone taking part in long distance events. We’re a friendly bunch. Below are all the guys from the 600km in April.

Visit AudaxSA. Book a ride. Try it out. If the distances scare you, then first look at something like the Tour de Boland. Once you have completed this, you will certainly be ready for a 300km or more.

Another 600

DSC02537 (1280x960)
This was December 2014. Having cycled through the night, here we are at a breakfast and beer stop in McGregor. From left to right is Rob Walker, Theunis Estherhuizen, myself & Eugene du Plessis.

Above you can see Eugene still has and abundance of suntan lotion on his face. But nowhere else — he ended up the next day looking like he wore long pants, because his legs were the exact same shade of red as his Specialized bib shorts. Lesson learned.

Footnote

Did I mention that Eugene completed the 600km BRM on a mountain bike? Surely a 1st for Audax South Africa. Mad. I’m sure he’s regained use of all his fingers by now.
