And would anyone be able to post a picture of their bike with nameplate, so those who don't know what we're talking about have a better idea of this must have accessory? Thanks.

LEL provides 2 frame plates .. normally one for front of bike and one cut to fit into the frame triangle. these had your rider number i.e. H 35 .. so H defined your start group time and 35 personalised it to you .. no name on it.

 YACF did a name plate like Crinkly's that YACFers put onto their saddle bag . so that someone  can see from behind your name and your YACF moniker .. so mine would have had Roger .. Fidgetbuzz

After a couple of PM's it looks like I'm the man to organise these this time. Will progress a design and make enquiries, and report back here a little nearer the time.

If you have an interest in a bike nameplate or a volunteer badge by all means post on here and I'll make sure you're included in any information when it's available.
Nameplate. Yes Please!
But will you be riding a Yellow Giant during LEL?

No longer. Traded up to something more appropriate for the long haul...

If all rides could be gentle pedalling downhill with the wind behind rather than puffing uphill with a windy behind.

Would definitely like one, please advise as and when.
Missed out on the official 2013 one, but the PBP 2015 version started many enjoyable conversations.
Still need some fitness/talent/willpower though !

Design work still ongoing for these, though we're reaching the final stages. Once we've got a price worked out I'll start taking orders - hopefully in the next couple of weeks

With grateful thanks to Stevevw OTP (and baby alfapete) here are the designs for the LEL2017 Nameplates and Badges.

These are just for fun, and are not official LEL merchandise - the organisers will supply you with small numbered frameplates to use on your bike during the event - these are an optional extra! For those unfamiliar with the concept they are intended for attaching to your saddlebag or rack so others can address you appropriately when calling out encouragement or abuse during the ride. You can punch the cards and use zipties to attach them however you like.

The two designs differ only in the presence or abscence of the yacf logo - I'll market them via facebook once I see how they go on here. If you're interested PM me your e-mail address and I'll send you details of how to order.

           

Size is A6 (105mm x 148mm), and you can specify two lines of text of up to 14 characters each. In addition you can request any flag you like for inclusion.

Cost for one is £2 but if you want more than one then the second and subsequent ones will be only £1 each - prices include delivery.

In addition this time we're also making pinbadges with the same design as the Nameplates. These are intended for volunteers to wear at controls, but they could be worn by anyone. These will be 85mm x 55mm and will cost £1.50 each, and they might be delivered to your control for collection (TBC)

To place an order please PM me your e-mail address and I'll let you know what information I require from you and will send payment details. Closing date for orders will be around the end of April.

Looks superb
Will double flags be an option again, as with PBP?

My daughter said some awkward bugger would want multiple flags. Three minutes was all it took!

I don't want to meddle with the design now, so it's a 'No', but you could cut one out and stick it over the LEL logo, I suppose!

Be easy enough to do two flags at the bottom and lose the YACF logo I'd have thought - if you want to cater for the awkward buggers.

On that basis I have gone from being quite relaxed about it to really wanting one!

I've switched from not wanting one at all to quite fancying the idea ...

Realising I've got a Union Jack already sewn onto my Barley - I'm going for the yacf / European Flag combo.

Orders for these were grinding to a halt after the initial yacf and then facebook activities.

The issuing of start times has suddenly focussed everyone's minds and I've had another glut of orders in the last 24 hours.

But still less than 1 in 50 of the entrants will be sporting this bit of designer-wear/ware.

Don't suppose you've had second thoughts about making a two-flag version available have you?

Print off web, scissors, sticky backed plastic (in true Blue Peter style), attach where necessary - sorted.

Or, in IT terms, Print, Cut, Paste.
