We are very happy to anounce that Polygon and Rodalink are partners of Lombok Audax Classic Mai 2015.
Last week we were in Jakarta to fix it and I got a fantastic frame because I am a lover of Polygon Bikes. Many of you know that I am still riding my 7 years old Polygon Bike, but during the next event it will be this red one.

you will get this advatages if you participate the Lombok Audax Classic Mai 2015 or if you are buing a Polygon/Helios Bike:
In order to drive long distances on a road bike, we need good road and minimize traffic. This is in Indonesia unfortunately still the exception.
We were offered in many regions Audax events to organize. But it failed because enough roads with good surface were not available or it was too much traffic.
Audax Indonesia will offer in the future Gravel Grinder events. We will ride also on streets without a good asphalt surface or broken streets. We should use special gravel road bikes, cross bikes or mountain bikes on unpaved roads, Gravel Roads.
In Lombok, for example, we can achieve beautiful beaches, which was previously not possible with a road bike.
In Classic Audax events most were driven around 200 km per day. Hardly time to enjoy the scenery. In Audax Gravel events it is different. We drive shorter distances and have plenty of time to dwell on the most beautiful places. The daily quota is 100-130 km.
Which bike we should use? Road bikes are the least suitable for these routes. Mountain bikes are not necessarily designed for long distances, but it is possible. Perfect for these lines are cross bikes or gravel road bikes, a mixture of Road bikes and cross bikes. Good to ride long distances on roads without asphalt surfaces.
In April 2015 we will held Lombok Audax - Gravel Grinder. We will explore the pristine beaches of the south coast and we will enjoy spectacular views over the Indian Ocean.
