Ride London 100
Did anyone else enter this? The ballot has been drawn and they are starting to inform everyone if they got in or not.
I was one of the lucky ones 🙂 Perhaps not the most challenging of sportives ever but 100 miles of closed roads taking in a few London landmarks along the way should be a very a memorable experience.Posted 5 years agoAndy WMember
I got a place , i dont know what to expext with 20,000+ riders of all levels on the roads but it should be a good day out
then there is the small matter of the drive from Yorkshire, Hotels,Parking and then getting back to where ever the car is at the end of it all
im sure it will all sort its self outPosted 5 years agoallthegearMember
Are they going to publish a route profile or something? Would be good to know what I have let myself in for…

Isn’t it the Olympic route or something??
I didn’t get in but not bothered as it would be a trek to London and back all getting silly expensive to ride manic crowded roads. We got to ride a lot of the Olympic bix course on the morning of the OLympics as they kept the roads shut there was also only about 5 other people out so already had the privilege 😉
not asking people to pay money to charity for something that isn’t that much of a challenge either! Everyone ius alwasy asking for money nowadays. Enjoy those that are doing it, when is it? Hope you get some good weather.Posted 5 years ago

just think how much money charities will get from this event alone and what that money can do and then think about whether it’s a worthy enough challenge…Posted 5 years ago
My point was if I can easily run 5k then there is no way I would expect to ask peopel to sponsor me. Every where you go nowadays someone is asking money for some charity or other. I don’t have a problem giving money to people but if they are doing an event it has to be a challenge for them.
Like people who have to raise £3500 to trek to Peru .. oh let me think, I’ll give you money to go on holiday? I don’t think so!Posted 5 years ago
PMSL @ Brakes!! I don’t have an issue with people full raising for this event I’m saying it wouldn’t be a challenge for me therefore I’m not willing to ask people to sponsor me. I would give money to certain people for charity who I would think couldn’t run a marathon not some whippet boy who’ll be around in 3 hours. Think that makes sense now!Posted 5 years ago
I’ve raised £1,200 so far for the British Heart Foundation. Whoop!Posted 4 years ago
My training has involved doing the route twice already and it’s, well, ok. The last 30ish miles are pretty dull after the wonderment of the Surrey Hills, but I imagine it will be a whole different barrel of kettles on closed roads, as long as I haven’t got involved in any anticipated pile-ups.
I’ll be on a grey Kinesis Racelight, with red socks and a red BHF jersey, black helmet. Throw some Haribo at me if you see me. 🙂aPMember
Yes, I think we’ll be riding in the Chilterns on Sunday, as far away from it all as possible. Barriers were being put up near St James’s Park this morning and the back of Victoria.Posted 4 years ago
It will be interesting to see how people manage the logistics of getting to Stratford by 6am without public transport and not being able to use any of the closed road route to get there.
