AUDAX Club Bolsover

Welcome to the web page for events run by AUDAX Club Bolsover.
Here you will find a list of the events by the month in which they are run.
Whilst we have supplied links to the AUDAXUK web site for each ride (when it is published for entry) together with links for the route sheet and GPX file please be aware that things may change. You should therefore ensure that you check with the AUDAX UK web site for the latest information. You will normally be sent the route sheet, GPX File and other information approximately two weeks before the event by the organiser.
You are responsible for your own safe passage when on an AUDAX event. For more information about AUDAX events please refer to the FAQ page on the AUDAXUK web site by clicking HERE.

If you have any questions about any of the rides, please email

GPX FILES – Important information please read this!

Whilst every effort is made to ensure that GPX files supplied are correct, we cannot be held responsible for any routing errors caused by the various mapping software tools used. We strongly urge you to carry a copy of the route sheet and where a GPS is taking you somewhere you wouldn’t have expected the route to go (e.g. down a dirt track) then please refer to the route sheet for guidance as this will be correct.
