Ax-pedition - Charity Cycle Sportive

The Ax-pedition is back and bigger than ever in 2017. Now in its third year, we have seen over 650 riders tackle our two addictively agonising routes raising over £10,500! all in the name of charity. The Ax-pedition will once again take place at Axminster Town Football Club on the 3rd of September 2017.

Headed by Axminster Rotary Club in partnership with Axminster Tools and Machinery, Ax-Pedition 2017 is back and will have some exciting changes to make it better than ever! We hope to see you there!
