I've ridden some of those roads occasionally, when holidaying in Pagham, so I'm really looking forward to riding them closed.
I'm toying with the idea of staying at Church Farm for the weekend, actually
Priority entry was £69 (tenner off the usual price). Some admin fees get added on bringing it to £72-odd.
money well spent !
IMO they should just close all the roads in the uk for that day. Then there can be no arguments.
As a British Cycling member I was able to book today so I am in
Would others like to share the rider name they chose?
I picked "L'Escargot", as "Le Branleur" would have been one too many characters
Signed up for this - cost me £109 with parking.
Looking for cheap hotels now if anyone has any suggestions ?
I mentioned above that I might consider a weekend at Church Farm in Pagham.
Prices seem to have risen since yesterday though... Now £183 for a standard caravan for that weekend. Still, they sleep 4, so £15 a night for three nights if you can find three mates to bunk with isn't too shabby.
The old school B&B at Westhampnett is lovely.
I booked the comfort inn arundel for £107 - seems to avoid the road closures - its about 10 miles from goodwood.
The event is now open for general sale tickets, including those who didn't pre-register. General entry is £79, 'fast track' entry is £129. "An administration fee of 5.75% per entry fee & 3% for additional purchases (e.g. merchandise, car parking) will be added at checkout by our processing partner Active Network."
Interesting that it's not actually sold out already - they had 25,000 pre-registrations before the bike show, and presumably a good few more after that, but only 10,000 took up the option to buy tickets during the priority booking window.
I've booked it. It might give me an incentive to get fit. Hopefully my son will join me and drag me round.
Lots of people put off by the cost I’d imagine.
Almost the exact same take up as velo birmingham. Think they sold 11,000 places to pre registered folk. the rest went over the next week or so - it will sell out or pretty close to it IMO
