Windmolen Achtervolgen Entry - Saturday 11th March 2017


After the success of The Summer Sendoff last September we've planned another event for the Spring. This will loosely follow the format of an audax, but with an emphasis on planning your own route and making your own fun. A "fundax" if you will.
The Sussex countryside is dotted with windmills, many of which are still open to the public and operational. Your brevet card will have the location of each windmill and your goal is to get to all of them.
We will provide a route which will cover 100 miles and take in many but not all of the windmills on the brevet card, the challenge being to go the extra mile and add your own extensions.
As with The Sendoff it's very much about having a good day on the bike, it is not a race or sportive there are no prizes for first place and no medals on offer.
However, if you do complete the ride there is the sense of achievement and a coveted Rule 5 Bikes commemorative patch waiting for you.

The ride will start at the shop at 8:00, you can leave a bag of spare clothes and shoes with us, the ride will finish at a pub in Brighton (tbc). It will be unsupported so you will need to bring good lights, enough spares, food and navigational aids to get you round.

Entry Fee - £10

Entry includes:
Route file for GPS device
Brevet card
