There are no expensive fees, no headline sponsors, no goodie bags, no numbers, no gold standard times, no broom wagons and no pretending at the finish to have looked into the jaws of hell and survived.

The Autumn South Salopian  is cycling at its best. It's about a good distance in a day, riding at a sensible pace with good company, travelling through quiet and pleasant countryside in the orange glow of an autumn day before winter arrives.This event sets off via the hopfield lined Teme Valley before venturing into the border badlands of The Marches will seperate England with Wales.  After Bishops Castle, the long climb towards The Long Mynd starts, afterwhich you descend towards World Heritage SIte of Ironbridge and its gorge.  The return portion bumbles through a little bit South Staffordshire before returning to your start point. Overall, the route is undulating with some minor climbs asides from the big beastie over the Long Mynd. 

Control locations include: Tenbury, Bishops Castle, Ironbridge plus three information controls. There are plenty of cafes and shops at the control locations as well as other locations on route. So, need not fear as there will be plenty of cake and coffee opportunities.

Riders simply stop at the controls and collect evidence of proof of passages (an ATM, till or café receipt) and answer information questions shown in their brevet card - just to make sure that everyone's ride can be validated as a true audax at the end of the day. Control points are located in towns where plenty of cafes and shops can be found.

Dusk is a 6.30pm by which time, the majority of riders will have returned but it is always a great idea to carry lights just in case of delay.
