There'll be limited parking available at/or around the start for the duration of the event. There's also a park + ride about a mile or so from the event start. More details on this will be available around March/April when the provisional event info' will be ready. Distance now down to about 1003 km. I'll be getting the jersey design back from the suppliers soon. Entries still open.

The lack of flexibility with teachers' holidays prevent me from entering this, but good luck to all the riders.  Winter miles bring summer smiles...
Lakes Audaxes on again in May 2019 (200km and 300km with hall accomodation).  Also an October running of The Tour of Rheged from S Lakes.

That's a shame. The event will hopefully run again.

Does anyone know if there will be car parking at the start location for the duration of the ride?

I am fancying this (dont now why ;-) ) but I am not sure I will have enough battery time with my lights. I did the Pendel 600 and managed fine with light but this will be aprox double the night time riding I think. I have a Lezyne Deca drive this does about 7 hours on low and a Lezyne xl 400 as a back up which will do about 4 hours.

Will there be any facility's to charge lights at Hawes?

That obviously depends on how much night-riding you do. There's no necessity to ride over the 3 nights. The Askrigg control (no longer Hawes) will provide sleeping facilities and likely somewhere to charge up your batteries. Entries still open due to high drop out.

Rich - are there any other options for you to explore - can the lights be recharged with a battery pack? Can you get spare batteries for these?

I am in a similar position - use Lezyne Super Drive and Power Drive - but both of these can charge through a usb cable from a battery pack or take spare batteries (although not high street shop sized batteries).

I think there may be quite a bit of night riding for me to get round in time....

Richard.

According to the official site the light takes a "LIR18650 2 Cell" and this takes 6 hours to recharge but can be replaced.  So just get a couple of spare batteries and charge them before the event

I wouldn't worry: you'll not get that much darkness in 3 nights in northern England the middle of summer.

I used B&M Ixon IQ Speed Premium on PBP. Claimed 10h and 50h battery life on high and low power.

I found low plenty most of the time and did not need to use the spare battery pack I took. A note of caution. He battery life was very poor at first and you need to condition the batteries with charge discharge cycles to get anywhere near the claimed life. On the dean this year the battery life was reduced again and I needed the spare pack. Just testing with two lights plugged into one pack just now, and it's exceeding 4h - so close to the expected life again.
