Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 2014
#41
From another forum..

A question for those who did it last year.

What checks to they make to ensure the person who been allocated the place is the same as the person who registers or is the same as the person who actually turns up on the day?

Thanks

None, a friend who I was riding with last year lives in London and registered both of us, picking up numbers, timing chips etc at the time. I had to send a copy of my driving licence and a note to say I gave him my consent to collect my number which he haf to show etc but after that there are no more checks. So theoretically once he had collected both our chips, I could have said to him give my chip to someone else and although it would be my name on the results, anyone could have been me.

I had the 0605 start time last year. I think it depends on your estimated time.

So they're putting the fastest riders out first I guess.  I think I put an estimated time of 6 hours, but I really can't remember for sure.

That's what they did last year.
My start last year was nearly 8 o'clock which gave me about 9 hours to get round while the faster riders had earlier start time so in theory had longer to complete the course.
When I applied this year I put down that I would do it in about 6 hours just so I had an earlier start time and therefore longer to do it in.

The idea is that the faster riders go first so they don't get held up by the slower riders. Which is fair enough else the event gets held up for everybody.

It clearly says that riders should be able to complete it in a maximum if 8.5hrs. Often referred to as an eternity.

What are you guys planning on wearing tomorrow? I've never ridden for so many hours in the rain, especially on the road. Temps should be about 15C at the time of the start, and around 20C at the end. Nearly an hour will be spent milling around at dawn in the rain.

I'm thinking bibs and short sleeve jersey, with a gilet to start. Long finger gloves and thin wool socks. I wonder if I should wear a thin long sleeve instead? Thin or medium weight short sleeve? Shoe covers? And clear, yellow, or grey lenses in the sunglasses?
