Audax Australia

I've been getting a lot of hits lately from our Australian counterparts.

Suddenly, I got it: while we're heading toward hibernation in much of the U.S., the spring season is (excessive preposition alert) cranking up down under.

I just checked out the Audax Australia site and their ride calendar. Those guys believe naming the rides is half the fun. The other half is the ride description.

Highland Hell Ride
Uphill, downhill and some flat bits. Only one big climb similar to Alpe d'Huez.

Cafe au Lait, S'il Vous Plait
Take part in the Great North East Coffee Survey. Evaluate the fare in Wang, Yarra, Beechie, Rutherglen and Benalla. 4 X 100 km circuits from Wangaratta. Practice your French accent for 2011!

Really Silly Season Summer Solstice Ride
A truly silly ride - mix of Road, Fire Trails and Unsealed roads for a Summer Solstice ride to the coast (Broule) for a dip in the ocean. Bring your mountain bike or very sturdy tourer and lots of water.

ABBA 300
The ride is SO LONG, but come & meet your WATERLOO on the ABBA 300. ( Altona-Ballarat-Ballan-Altona) Just say I DO, I DO, I DO, I DO, I DO to come now and just try it The ride is SO LONG, but you can always send an SOS and ring your MAMMA MIA.

Road trip, anyone?

Then, of course, there is my favourite, on 22 December:

Bah, Humbug!

Grumpies unite - it's time to release your inner curmudgeon and harrumph! Anyone with the slightest hint of tinsel, bells or holly will have their tyres deflated, their chain derailed, their seat removed and incur a heafty time penalty.
