For those Americans seriously considering participating in PBP-Audax in 2020, please contact me to express your interest.
Registration for the event will open in January and the UAF has asked for an approximation of the number of Americans who might be in attendance. We want to make sure that there’s room for all who want to go.
Note that qualification is not required — the first audax brevet I rode was PBP-Audax in 2016. That said, it’s still a very long ride and you should be well prepared to undertake it. Audax isn’t any easier than the randonneur format, it’s just different. And if you’d like to participate in an audax brevet, we’re hosting a full UAF-sanctioned audax series here in Central Florida in 2020.
I’ve done both PBP formats — the randonneur version four times — and am glad to answer any questions you might have and, for those going, to assist with registration, communication, and advice and help with other logistics.
