It's that time of year again folks!
Ride London is once more offering British Cycling affiliated clubs the opportunity to apply for team entries into this event (Sunday 30th July 2017).
There is no restriction on how many teams one club can enter but all teams/team members must conform to the following;
-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 British Cycling Club Challenge.
The team entries for this will open late February so please express your interest by adding your name and details to the spreadsheet (link below).
Due to the level of interest from club members for this years team places the method of choosing the teams has been revised. To make it fair the spreadsheet will be open for 2 weeks (closing on 24th Feb 2017). All the names entered on the spreadsheet will then be entered into a ballot and the order of the names drawn (possibly by El Pres) will be given priority.
A draw for the men and women will be done separately and the best combination that allows the most teams/individuals to participate will be selected.
Last year the Club was awarded 1 x mens and 1 x ladies so hopefully we can better this. One change to the rules worth noting is unlike previous years no club is guaranteed a place.
Notification of award is normally received end of March.
Best of Luck!
