PBP has got me wanting to do another long ride, and saw today that early bird entries close today:
Food options galore, 2 x bag drops, sleeping place provision all over the place, the lovely English and Scottish countryside in glorious mid summer. Should be lovely!
Anyone else thinking of doing this?
entered ballot .. gulp
If you are a long term AUK member, entry is guaranteed.
I am since 2017 dec .. need to check if my direct debit is still on
You can check your AUK# against this document.
not on there 😭
I have guaranteed entry so will decide in early 2021 I guess. I'd love to do it but LIFE, innit.
There are some caveats about the comprehensiveness of the list. I think if you were a household member who renewed within a 2 weeks of the 12th September, you're not on the list but eligible (I renewed on the 11th!). Think there were some people who also got missed. Send them an e-mail if you think you should be eligible.
Also, keep your membership up to date. If you lapse, you'll no longer have guaranteed entry. They're not allowing a grace period this time round.
I thought I wasn't eligible so have entered the ballot. Turns out I am on the list after all. Any chance of false positives?
Would love to do this again and fully recommend anyone does it who is thinking about it.
Got the result from the ballot, preview text in gmail says I have a place, actual email says I don’t. Good thing I’m in the guaranteed entry list I suppose.
No place for me :(
Why have you entered the ballot if you’re in the guaranteed entry?
I only saw this thread and the list afterwards.
Entered the ballot, got an e-mail telling me I had a place, and a subsequent e-mail telling me the first e-mail was wrong, and that in fact, I didn't have a place.
I always thought Audax people were a bit strange, but that's confused the hell out of me.
It seems strange to not have any qualifying rides for LEL with so many DNF's last time and the over subscription. I'll be a little bitter if I don't get a place as I've been an AUK member for quite a while but just let it lapse most years for a few months.
I mean i could play the BAME card
But i am taking this as a sign from allah
Can I play the entitled white man card? It would be unfair to deny me the place as society has systematically given the white man what he wants. Emotionally I think it is only fair.
Yeah no joy on the ballot for me either. Seems weird that the next opportunity to enter is Jan 2021.
So if you are on the excel spreadsheet list you are guaranteed entry to 2021? How do you claim the entry if so?
In the absence of any other info I’m gonna assume it will be down to who’s the quickest.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
