  • One more thing. A bike with guards won't fit in my car so I have s 4 o clock start to ride to dunmow. I don't want to ride there and back. 606km is enough.

    That's the implication of the mudguard rule. Essentially I can't do another long audax because I am not changing my car so I can fit an "audax" bike in it. My old BMW will not be getting a roof rack either, it drinks enough petrol as it is. In fact since I don't race much any more and I won't be going to more audaxes my car is going to do even less than 3000 miles a year. I might just sell it.

    That's why I am not looking forward to this now.

    So by audax rules saying it's respectful to use mudguards they are saying I am not welcome unless I am willing to leave the day before for an audax and ride there and back and take more time from my family or change my car. A truly welcoming organisation.

    Sorry for the rant. I needed to say this.
