All the Tockwith Audax events are CTCNY events run in association with Audax UK. This means that to ride the event and be fully insured, you must enter via the Audax UK website. It is a good idea to do this before hand as places are limited. A small number of places are available on the day, but if you enter on the line, you are taking the risk of a place being unavailable, especially if you arrive late.
Once registered, you will receive a route sheet and a link to a .GPX or .TCX file of the route a minimum of 2 weeks before the Audax. You will also be kept updated by email and via the Tockwith Audax facebook pages and receive notification of any late changes in the running of the event. Please be aware that the organiser cannot accept entries on a CTC entry form. Make sure you use an Audax UK form to enter.
If this is your first audax, as it will be for many entrants, please take a few moments to read the Audax UK information sheet " Riding your First Audax". We usually have more than 60 riders for all three events and it is quite busy first thing in the morning. The organiser and his volunteer team do not have time to answer lengthy questions on the day. It's a good idea to read the sheet and if you can't find the answer there, send an email to the organiser via the address on the Aukax UK website.
