There was some twitter stink from a bunch of srsbsns dudes who submitted entries as women and all got places, where they didn’t get placeswith their real man mannish names.
I think the organisers have stated that it wasn’t random and that white middle aged men were at the back of the queue. And something something woke brigade or something
Here we go
Hearing it is cancelled this year and no deferrals (but refunds available).
Update on the future of the Ride London Surrey (?) 100 event: https://road.cc/content/news/50km-ride-replace-ridelondon-surrey-100-mile-sportive-278057
From memory, "managing" the impact of future sports cycling events was in an action from surrey council's cycling strategy / action plan. They have run a public consultation in which over half of surrey residents who responded do not object to the continuation of the ride100, but the council are going to get rid of it anyway.
Sounds like a good opportunity for another home county to step in (Essex?) but the hills will be missed.
Cancelled for 2021 also https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-55858788
Sorry for all the SW peeps but Surrey is the most overrated county for cycling so it's no loss. Kent is better. Essex would be grand but NO WAY would they allow it.
RideBarnet100 has a nice ring to it.
Wash your mouth out or you're not welcome on the post covid 5 hills.
Essex could be great on closed roads though.
Bah, still want to do it just so I can get the London Classics medal.
Should definitely do it in Kent and send all the charity riders down Toys Hill in the rain
No legacy like Putney High Street Olympic legacy.
