Once we have received both the entry form and full amount of money we will confirm your entry by email or by post. If you are entering online you will receive an automated confirmation once your entry is complete. Please note teams will only be entered once all monies are received. It is best to gather all cheques together and then send them off to us to be processed or if using the online facility, enter and pay for everyone at the same time. 

Please make sure that you add an email address of every rider on the entry form - please make sure we can read it as it makes our job so much more straightforward. 

The entry fee includes: 
Ride entry, free usage of all facilities, finishing present, DJ / band and free parking. Camping (if required) will get charged extra.


We have three different categories in the Ritchey event on Saturday. All categories are available for male, female and mixed teams: 
Team - ‘youngins’ (average age of riders needs to be 14-17 years - minimum age 14 years)
Team - Open (average age of riders needs to be 18-39 years - minimum age 14 years)
Team - ‘Old Gits’ (average age of riders needs to be 40+ years - minimum age 14 years)
Team - ‘Proper Old Gits’ (average age of riders needs to be 50+ years - minimum age 14 years)
Team - Single-Speed

NB. There is no Single-Speed category for the 6 hour event and the 3 hour novice event will only have one category - Team Novice.

All categories can be entered as solo riders, pairs or teams of 3 - 4 riders.

Exception to the rule is the 3 hour event. It can be only ridden as a team of 2 - 4 riders or as a solo rider. 

Mixed teams must have at least one female rider. If you struggle to make up the numbers in your team the number of riders will be rounded up and you will be placed into the appropriate category.

If a category gets less than 5 entries it will be integrated into the nearest category. Prize will be split across the top 3 riders/teams.

‘Youngins’ (14-17 years – must be accompanied by an adult)
