Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100
For those that didn’t get in on the individual ballot (or don’t have a charity place) there is still a chance for an entry. There are places for 400 club teams (teams consist of 4 riders).
Full details won’t be available until 3 March but this was the info for last year’s event (and presumably this year will be similar)…
The Club Challenge tests teams of four to complete the 100-mile course, which starts in the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, through closed roads in the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside. With stunning climbs and a route recently made famous by the world’s best cyclists, it will be a truly spectacular event for all involved.
Clubs can register multiple teams of four riders to complete the 100-mile course together in the best possible team time.
Categories for all-female, all-male and mixed (2 male/2 female) teams.
Each team’s finishing time will be recorded against the 4th team member to reach the finish. Teams are encouraged to ride together.
Team applications close at midnight on 14 April. Successful teams will be informed from 26 April and will pay their entry fees (£48 per rider) online via the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 website.
Clubs may make an application for more than one team. It is requested that one person registers the team(s) on behalf of your club.
In the event of oversubscription, a ballot process will be used.
Each rider must be a current British Cycling adult member. Riders who hold an elite or 1st category British Cycling Race Licence are not eligible to enter the Club Challenge.
Please note that 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.
So if you’re interested just add a comment here. Once we’ve got a list of names we’ll do our own draw to decide the teams.
PLEASE NOTE YOU NEED TO BE A MEMBER OF BRITISH CYCLING.February 15, 2014 at 11:02 am #26876

I’m wanting to join BC, but when filling in the on-line form it asks if you’re a club member, so you put in clubs name and it auto searches…but nothing comes up!!?!! Also, can’t find the Dynamos on the ‘Club Finder’ section on the British Cycling website, is the club a member?
Any ideas anyone!February 22, 2014 at 8:14 am #26898

When you say team does this imply that we would do the event as a team i.e. for more than the first 100m?March 7, 2014 at 8:40 am #26937
Here is an abstract from BC, it does give some intensive to ride as a team
