On the 12th of June, 1897, a group of Italian cyclists travelled the route between Rome and Naples, a distance of 230 kilometers, in a single day. Given the difficult cycling conditions of that time, this effort was considered to be “audacious”.
In France, at the end of the nineteenth century, the first cycle tourists had begun to organize, together with hikers. The creation of the Touring Club de France, on March 31, 1890, was the result of this coming together.
In 1904, Henri Desgrange, founder of the Tour de France in the previous year, founded Audax France on the model of Audax Italiano. He conferred on the Audax Club Parisien, newly created on November 30, 1904, the authority to certify brevets ridden under Audax rules in France.
From the outset, the club was a success. The ACP members were all experienced cyclist hardened by long distance cycling. They became adept at the task of “ride captain”, and at guiding group rides at an 18 kilometer per hour pace, which, until 1945, was considered to be the correct Audax pace.
At that time, only the 200 kilometre distance was considered to be a brevet, the completion of which entitled a cyclist to be designated “Audax”. Beyond this, rides of 300 and 400 kilometers, were organized by the ACP 600 kilometre rides would appear a little later.
By 1921, the designation of “Audax” had been conferred on about 4,500 French cyclists. Brevets are being organized across the world to celebrate ACP Centenary Year 2021.
