Ride Organiser Procedures – After the Ride

Accident Reporting

Processing Refunds

All refunds must be completed within 21 days after a ride.  If you don’t do refunds within this time period, it causes extra work for the regional treasurer rgn.treasurer@audax.org.au who then has to do the refunds.

Refer Ride Organiser: Processing a Refund instructional video https://www.loom.com/share/fa19c17a143d4303a678a6fa1fe2fe44

Refer How do I refund a rider? in https://www.audax.org.au/portal/images/Documentation/Event-Booking-Creator.pdf

Rules of thumb for refunds are:

  • Always refund patch/medals for DNS/DNF riders
  • DNS refunds are at the discretion of the RO eg. full refund for an unsupported ride if informed before registration close date
  • No entry fee refund for DNS if not informed before ride (except patches/medals)
  • For supported rides, partial or full refunds depending on current outlay per rider eg. food may have already been purchased

Changing Ride Distance (After Ride)

Refer https://www.audax.org.au/portal/ride-organisers/online-rort-documentation FAQ: A rider has changed the distance they are riding, how do I change the distance?

You cannot change the distance in the online RORT tool.  Use the Edit Registration in the portal > Ride Organiser Menu > Edit Registration.  Choose the rider’s first name, and then change the distance and save:

  • If ride fees for the two distances are different (eg. 200 km $20, 100 km $10), check the Re-calculate Registration Fee box before saving
  • If the new ride distance has a lesser ride fee (eg. $10 instead of $20), issue a partial refund for the difference
  • If the new ride distance has a greater ride fee (eg. $20 instead of $10), you should have collected the difference on the day of the ride in cash (unless you got the rider to renter in which case you don’t need to change the ride distance).  This cash needs to be recorded in the Cash or Bank Funds Received field(s) in the online RORT and deposited to the Audax bank account (refer rgn.treasurer@audax.org.au).

Online Results Entry (even if no riders)

Refer Online RORT instructional video for ride organisers https://www.loom.com/share/8aea8ef004ac415d97a0a4ee6cb49091

Refer Online RORT Documentation: https://www.audax.org.au/portal/ride-organisers/online-rort-documentation

  • In Expenses, it has been recommended to uncheck Treasurer Already Has Details and always enter your account details (as these may be lost with a changeover of treasurers):
  • Always process results online even if there were no riders so that the ride can be closed off.  Every ride result has to be accounted for so submitting null results saves further followup.

Return Cards to Regional Brevet Secretary

  • Return (post or in person) cards to your Regional Brevet Secretary as soon as possible after the ride.
