I've wanted to ride this one for a few years, so will enter this year.

Pity the start is 8:15 though, as that precludes use of the pub at the end for those needing to finish their ECE, given the pub doesn't open until 4pm.

EDIT: only postal entry?

I’ve switched over to Stripe payments for all my events.  But seems I still need to setup my PayPal details in my event admin to turn on the online link. Online link now active.

Not sure which pub you are looking at, but the finishing pub is open from 9am on a Saturday.

Edit - Ah - realised route map isn’t showing due to Aukweb.net SSL certificate expiry.  If you could see that you’d know the finish this year is back at The Chequers PH.

We are usually at finish from around 2:00pm to catch the Greenways Lite riders, and then stay till last Four Minute Mile 200 riders back.

I was reading the details on the event page, which is linked to from the Audax.uk website. This refers to the Chequers Inn opening at circa 4pm.

Aha, that was written and last updated pre pandemic, when I had yet to create the Hertfordshire Greenways Lite event. It was during the logistics of the event in September 2019 that we were caught out by the fast Four Minute Mile riders finishing at the pub finish when we were still at the cafe finish for this event. Thus since then I’ve decided that there should be just the one finish across all event distances, different pubs depending on which way round the events go.  Then last September was first time I was able to implement single pub finish across all three events, due to the pandemic in between.

Anyway I’ll update those event pages, when I get a moment this week, to reflect what I’m now doing with the finishes

Added to my list. I'll mention it to my club, as there was some interest last year.

clocked this one, but not the start times - was that 8:15 for the 200 or 100?

MIght mean a silly-o-clock leaving home, with probably no trains (either strikes, or just being a Saturday)

It’s 8:15am start for this one. The Cambridge trains to Stevenage on a Saturday usually arrive 8:01am.  Though there is one arrives 7:39am if you want breakfast at cafe start. Thameslink weren’t on strike during recent ones, though you do see trains cancelled now and again due to lack of drivers.
