Dinton 100k Audax – Wednesday 6th May

The sun is bringing out all the bright green leaves on hedges and trees – what better way to view them all by riding our local Audax starting from Dinton Pastures at 10:00 on Wednesday 6th May?

The route is not deliberately hilly so would make an ideal ‘first Audax’ for the newcomer to Audax riding, or a great day away from work (or retirement!) for experienced Audaxers.  Entries are rolling in more quickly than in previous years and there are a limited number of Brevet cards so beware of ‘enrolling on the line’ as you may end up with a blank Brevet card with no details of control points, which you will need to manually complete.  Route sheets will, however, be available.

Road closures

On a recent Wednesday night ride our route took us through the back door of Green Park to Kirtons Farm Road.  We were heading south but should we have wanted to head west then we faced a dead end.

Some closed roads are passable by pedestrians and so bikes too.  But in this case the bridge over the railway is being raised to make room for the electrification of the line, until June this year.

You can find out details of closed roads and other fascinating road related data from http://roadworks.org/ which publishes data from local authorities.
