Audax Victoria – Regional Ride Resumption

To all Audax Victoria Members,

I hope you and you family are all well and coping with the challenges that COVID-19 has forced upon us.

As you will be aware, the COVID-19 restrictions have eased markedly in Regional Victoria whereas Melbourne residents are still confined to a 5KM radius from home with no definitive date as to when that might change. Because of this easing, and the uncertainty as to when Melbourne riders might be able to ride an Audax brevet, the Victorian Committee has decided to allow Regional Victoria residents to resume riding both Calendar and Permanent rides in Regional areas as from the 1st of October 2020.

All rides will be run in accordance with the prevailing Government restrictions with respect to things such as the number of riders, wearing of masks, social distancing etc. Latest details are available here:

Also please comply with the Audax framework for recommencing rides at:

Ride organisers will ultimately have the decision on whether they wish to run their rides. If, as a ride organiser, you decide that you would rather not run your ride in the current circumstances, please cancel your ride in the online calendar as soon as possible.

I hope that everyone in Victoria can get back to riding again soon. It would be nice if we could start the new Audax calendar at the start of November with all of us able to participate. Here’s hoping…

Charlie Cooke
