Got back from my motorcycling break, (which was ‘epic’ – more later), to be greeted by the Ride100′s ‘Final Countdown’ rider information pack. I am Rider Number 2893. It’s all very precise and has a tone of extreme order:

Each start has 19 different waves. Below is your recommended time to get to QEOP the loading time of your wave and your actual start time:

     Your arrival time at QEOP: 06:42

     Your personal load time is: 07:06

     Your Personal start time: 07:42

The pack, which is chocker with information, contains a route map and profile:

Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 Participants Route Map 2013


And as if the jagged ‘peaks’ of Newlands Corner, Leith Hill & Box Hill are not enough to put one off, the informations tells of the  5 ‘cut-off points with the following words of ‘encouragement’: “If you do not reach the cut off points before the above times you will be withdrawn from the event.”

NOW this is getting rather serious!
