My Audax Ride Calendar for 2011 – Wishful Thinking?

The planets have aligned a little more favourably this year which may allow a little more Audax riding than before. Nothing is set in concrete but I have worked through the Audax calendar for 2011 and have the following rides pencilled in as possibilities.  Putting this out here as a bit of goal/challenge to myself.  I would like to do one Audax ride a month but have pencilled in some additional rides just in case the opportunity comes up and to provide some flexibility. Rides in italics are the optional rides in that month.
