Outline

Mad march audax.jpg

The Mad Hatter is a 'Permanent' event organised by Exeter Wheelers CC under Audax UK Regulations

In a normal ('calendar') Audax you navigate between manned control points on a given day and have a card stamped to show that you have completed the course. With Permanent events you can ride the course on a day of your chosing - and you collect dated and timed till receipts from establishments en-route to demonstrate you have completed the route.

To enter the event please send

  • a cheque for £3.00 made out to 'Pippa Wheeler', and
  • two A5 stamped addressed envelopes

to Pippa Wheeler at the following address. This first envelope will be used to send you the card which you carry and complete en-route (is this the case Pippa?). The second envelope will be used to return your validated card as your record of completing the event.

Pippa Wheeler   Rull Barn, Payhembury, Honiton, EX14 3JQ
