Ride London Club Challenge

posted 22 Feb 2017, 01:59 by Lara Taylor   [ updated 22 Feb 2017, 02:00 ]
As in previous years, there might be an opportunity to enter Ride London this year as part of a VCGH team. This is particularly good for any of you who've had multiple rejections from the Ride London ballot.

There's more about the club challenge on the BC website

Mark Pearce has kindly offered to collate our team applications again, so at this stage all you have to do is email Lara to register your interest by the end of February. We already have a list of those of you who have expressed your interest through Facebook.

Successful applicants will be informed in March (we may get zero teams accepted, or several, or anything in between), at which point you'll need to fill in your entry and pay for your place. 

You must be able to commit to the event, as the entry is otherwise compromised.
Team categories are all men, all women or mixed (two men and two women).
Each rider within the team must pay their own entry fee (£69) and complete their own online entry form.

Unlike in previous years, clubs who had a team riding in the previous event will NOT be guaranteed a team in this year’s event, however the more paid-up British Cycling members your club has, the higher your chances of a team or teams gaining entry into the event.

 Applications will open in late February.

If you have any enquires please email clubs@ridelondon.co.uk

Please note:

  • A team comprises four riders
  • Every rider in a team must be a current British Cycling member
  • Teams can comprise four men or four women or a mixed team of two men and two women
  • Riders who hold an Elite or Category 1 British Cycling Race Licence are not eligible to enter the Club Challenge
  • Riders who have already secured an  individual place through the original entry ballot or a charity place are not eligible to enter the Club Challenge
