Jawa Pos Cycling Audax East Java 2013 will be held on 30 June 2013, to celebrate Jawa Pos newspaper’s 64th anniversary and Bhayangkara’s 67th anniversary. Participants will attempt to ride 232 kilometer route in 11-12 hours. This will be the first ever Audax event in the province of East Java, Indonesia.
Audax is not a race. Audax is a non-competitive, time-limited, long-distance cycling. The term “audax,” meaning “audacious,” is given to a movement started in 1897, when a group of Italian cyclists rode 200 km between sunrise and sunset, and became known as “les Audacieux.”
These days, classic ride lengths are 200, 300, 400 and 600 km. Longer rides are possible, up to 3,200 km. The most famous Audax Paris-Brest-Paris (PBP) is about 1,200 km.
Jawa Pos Cycling Audax East Java 2013 is an official event of AUDAX INDONESIA, the official license holder from L’Union des Audax Francais.
