Audax / Re: Dutch brevets in 2019

I'm also tempted by the Rondje Texel 400. (I live in Cambridge but rode several AUK-validated DIYs in The Netherlands this year, including a 400. They were all great fun). This would be my first proper Dutch brevet.

I'm looking at the online entry form. It asks for your "club", and offers a long list of clubs from around the world, though the list looks broken and incomplete (only A-C) What do other UK-based riders do here?

Can we sign up for this one already? Can't normally sign up until about 4 weeks before an event.

How can sending a customer's own details back to them be a breach of GDPR?

Transmitting unencrypted email over the public email system introduces a risk that the email will be snooped or intercepted

If the website isn't PCI compliant then I'd be dubious about the rest of their operations.  If they can't even do this then what else are they not doing?

Contrast that to, say, lions, who spend most of their time chewing their meat - meaning they haven't got time to do things like build cities.

Lions spend on average 20 hours a day asleep. This suggests to me that the real reason they don't build cities is that they're lazy feckers.

Are they lazy or is the digestive effort leaving them sleepy?

I was dogless. If I remember correctly, it was more of a horsey area.

"Is this burger veggie?"
"Yep!"
"Oh, I'll have a different one then."

This can be a good principle on the basis of politeness.  Event catering is a zero-sum game, and if the omnivores scoff all the veggie food, the veggies are liable to miss out.

Catering top tip: Put the meat stuff out first.

I like that one! ;D That's an excellent reason never to try veggie food.  :D

I can now validly claim to be a non-vegetarian for ethical reasons.  :thumbsup:



On the flip side, if an (ethical) vegetarian turns up and all the veggie food has been scoffed, then they obviously don't need to be a vegetarian.  :P
