Stamp Collecting

Brevet cards are used in audax rides to prove proof of passage. At each control point you get a stamp on the card. In a sense it is what you get for doing the ride, a set of stamps. Here are some notable ones from my collection

  1. […] Stamp Collecting: brevet stamps as mementos of past rides. We don’t seem to have the tradition for brevet stamps in Australia, which is a bit of a pity really. […]

  2. Wow, nice collection.
    You probably really enjoy cycling.

    P.S.
    Face of octopus in Aberystwyth stamp is so cute.
