Hope you ride our Audax ride the 1st Indian BRM 200km on 31jan to Mahalakshmi temple Dahanu.
We are sinking our meager resources with no strings attached,to introduce the concept of cycling allure libre (at your own speed) and cycle touring.Such disciplined rides are expected to give cyclists confidence and courage to do tours independently on their own,the resulting fillip to cycle touring would be awesome.
I happen to be the Audax Club Parisien representative, but any club is free to organize such rides.We will provide all help in documentation and in getting the sanction from ACP France.
I am just the vehicle for all to benefit and I do not hold a monopoly in holding such events!!
We are supposed to have at least 2 events of the categories 200/300/400/600
And all the categories 200 to 600 for the PBP years that's 2011,2015 and so on.
If we fail to do so for 2 years in succession India will be back to square one with no representation in ACP.In this eventuality any one who wishes to ride th PBP will have to go out of India to ride the qualifying Brevets.
One has to do the full series in the PBP year to qualify to ride the prestigious Paris Brest Paris 1200km.This is like an Olympics of cycle touring and is only once every four years.
So please make the most of this.
