I pre-registered but decided against it on cost. I love the idea of a 100 mile closed road event and if I lived locally I’d pay £79. However being in Lancashire I’d be looking at two nights accommodation £200+, two evening meals and fuel. This would very quickly add up to £500 for a bike ride. A group from my club have organised four nights in Mallorca for £370 including flights which puts UK costs in perspective. Having said that I’m still hoping to get on PRL which will cost £300-400. The difference being PRL has something of an iconic status and it would be a great weekend away with friends. I had four emails from the organisers in 48 hours, 3 on Thursday, and two from BC in the previous 24 hours. I thought this smacked of desperation. It probably isn’t but that’s the impression I was given - overselling can create a poor impression.
