Down to the last 50 places for 2019...so if you're thinking of entering, please do so asap to avoid disappointment - and if you know anyone else who is thinking of entering please tell them likewise. We expect to close entries within a couple of weeks.

If you have entered I have just processed the first (large) batch of entries and your payments will be presented this week. 

Thank you all again for your enthusiastic and overwhelming support for the event.

My cheque has been cashed a few weeks ago... still no sign of entry appearing in my AUK page, but I safely assume I am in...  ;D

I thought I was being insanely over cautious sending off the form last week

But apparently, a lot of people had the same idea!

In the past the organiser has handled entries outside the AUK system, so your AUK page won't know anything about it.

I note that the event page doesn't list the Max Riders Num; so he might be setting it at 51 ... ;)

I think it's around 200, but I also thing the DNS rate is actually quite high. 130 validations or so last May and the weather was as perfect as one could hope for

I note the event page now lists the entries as closed. I sent my application off a few weeks ago but the cheque has not been cashed.

Would I have been told if me entry arrived too late and the event was full?

Thanks BB I am aware of other options includong an intetesting one from Bristol that would allow me to sleep in my own bed.
I just want to know one way or the other if I am in. I know others received an email when the first lot of entries were accepted, at that time places were still available.

The organisers have informed me the last batch of cheques have been banked, so anyone who has applied should get confirmation once the cheques have cleared.

Hi everyone

We have now processed all the entries for BCM 2019 and the event is closed to further entries.  This email is therefore confirmation that we have received an entry from you and you are on the start list for 18 May 2019.

We will circulate detailed information about the event nearer the time.  There is only one planned change to last year’s route on the return between Talgarth and Usk which will divert off to the back road to LLanfoist and then through Chainbridge.

To avoid ambiguity, can I reiterate that your entry is personal to you and is not transferable.  Similarly, the entry fee is not refundable.

One other point has become a recurring issue in recent years is that, if you ride the event with someone who has not entered, AUK regs say you cannot get your brevet validated.  We always have people who think they can just tag along with their club mates but, if you are relying on BCM as a qualifying ride for PBP, take care with this.
