    Race Entry now open.


    Closed Road Fun


    I did it last year and had a ball. It is pricey at £50 but was worth it IMO. The registration on the day before is a PITA and in fact nearly prevented me from taking the start line (due to being forced to go out on the lash the night before the race), but closed roads were great and it was very well marshalled.

    May not be doing it this year as the date is bad for me, but anyway, if you're interested...

    I had a great time last year on this and remarkably finished in the top 100 (way higher than I should be)

    I have entered already, the cost is high but in my opinion definetly worth it.

    Here's hoping for slightly better weather :biggrin:
     
  3. I've entered this event however I'm also going to enter the FWC which is the week before. Hopefully I will have recoverd in time:biggrin:

    It now looks as though I'll manage, so I'll don my CC jersey and see you there! Hoping to avoid quite as horrendous a hangover as I had on the start line this time round.

    I've just signed in for it as well. Should be good fun. I enjoyed it last year.

    at the moment : wet, windy .... emphasis on both. :becool:

    i've seriously dropped the ball on the fitness stakes over the last few months, so need to set some targets to aim against.

    how about you ?

    I did it last year - pricey but well run - so I'll be doing it again this year. Look out for a guy on a 'funny' bike looking out for CC jerseys!

    To get motivated again this year I have entered this as well today.
    Going with a few work friends to help keep the cost s down a bit.

    Are they happy to let you do it on a "funny" bike? There was a big list last year of things that were not acceptable!

    Still, I will look out for you all, I'll be in the EK jersey and hoping to make the first page of the results this time!

    Looks like a big entry already ;)
     
  13. 968, including my good self, when I looked at the website last night. I will also be in EK kit but probably not going as fast as papercorn:smile:
     
  14. I've been meaning to sign up for ages, only remembered tonight ;); its up to 992 entrants.
     
  15. I think its limited to 1000
