The road is calling

Our club takes the baton from the last year's Flèche and Trace Nationale "Cossacs Ride", with finish on Khortytsia Island-the cradle of Ukrainian Cossacks.

This year we propose to dive deeper, and ask - where did the Cossacks originate?

The shaping of the Cossack state occurred at the intersection of two civilizations—settled and nomadic. One of the hypotheses of the origin of the Cossacks states that the Cossacks are the descendants of Brodnici, Berladnici, and Galician exiles. They lived and roamed between present-day Volhynia and Ponyzzia within the borders of the ancient Rus historical-geographical area — Bolokhiv Lands.

This is where the glorious city of Vinnytsia appeared.

So “Borderlands” — as a historical territory, a background of the nation, a dualism of lifestyle.

Moguls Audax invites everyone to escape settled workplaces or homes, and dive into the nomadic life of adventures, exploration, and discovery in the spirit of Audax. Welcome to Flèche and Trace Nationale “Borderlands”!

Let`s ride Flèche and Trace Nationale “Borderlands” together!

About National Flèche and Trace

National Flèche and Trace are special events of the Audax Club Parisien. They are held at the same time, and the main challenge is that they take place at the beginning of the cycling season (not randonneuring though) while the weather conditions are quite poor.

Like all ACP events, these are not competitions, but in opposite to brevets are team challenges.

Also, if you are aiming to earn the title of Randonneur 5000 or Randonneur 10000, you will need a Flèche Nationale homologation.

Unlike the Flèche Nationale, the Trace Nationale has less stringent rules in terms of distance and time limits. It's not required for any ACP titles, like Randonneur 5000 and 10000, and just allows you to enjoy the company and the process regardless of your physical fitness (of course, not completely independently).
