FS: Entry Spot in BHF London-Brighton Sportive

by rbx   May 9, 2012  

Hi

I have a spare entry spot to BHF's London-Brighton sportive ride (17 June) available for purchase for £35.

The spare entry was for my wife who will be unable to ride because of some work commitments that have come up on that weekend.

BHF rules do not allow cancellation of entries, but do allow transferring them - hence this advert.

Do get in touch if interested.

Cheers!

Also, since wife isn't coming along, am planning to make it a return ride - Brighton & back.

According to BHF, the one way route is so return should be ~ - long but not too hard, I hope.

Anyone in for this? (preferably someone not too fast Wink )

I've just been trying to work out how flat it is between London and Brighton?

Is there a minimum sponsorship amount to be raised? and Do you have your start times through?

Here's last year's route (I doubt it'd have changed much): http://www.mapmyride.com/s/routes/view/road-cycling-map/wandsworth/38221798

A sneak preview of this year's route is here: http://www.mapmyride.com/s/event/cycling/united-kingdom/london/508127

A total gain of 1900ft over 54 miles doesn't look too hard, though that last climb (Ditchling-Beacon) does have a mean reputation.

There is no minimum sponsorship commitment but I have a starter pack from BHF with details for the ride and sponsorship raising, which I can hand over.

P.S.: Have you moved to London?

Nope i aint moved to London, but i like to support the BHF. Just a thought to come down and ride it with you. Just waiting on my "new" frame that i would use for touring about arriving in the next couple of days that i'll get back to you.

I have your email somewhere from the google+ invite Wink

@shamrock - yes, still available to buy.

I'll check with Gkam once, since he asked first, but if he doesn't want it, it's all yours Smile
