Bit early for a GPx isn't it? Would have thought there will still be route checks to be done nearer the event time.

You could become Fixedwheel@79" and be sure of a space in the hall, maybe?

For reference, Campenaerts used a 114 inch gear yesterday...  :thumbsup:

It's a link to my dropbox files. I've ridden all of the tracks in the last year and the routesheet is 40% final checked. What is there is good enough for riders who want to explore the route. I expect any updates to be minor and I'll keep chipping away at these, updating the files. Once I'm finished I'll let everyone know .

Ah ok I hadn't received Danial's email at the time I replied.  I thought you had been requesting it, rather than the current version had been made available to all entrants.

I am on the 7:30am start and will be driving round from Hertfordshire (J7/8 of A1 south) from about 6:00am.  I will have a rack on the back for an extra bike.  In terms of heading back I tend to have a sleep of three hours after a 600 before driving back.  I am not full value neither am I at the pointy end (or haven't been in the past!) so that usually means I'd be heading back after a sleep around the time of the event close time.  If anybody would like a lift then get in touch.  Plenty of cheap hotels this way as well if you are coming from further afield and Windsor prices have gone up.

Hi S2L 70 refers to my age, rather than size gearing I use...

I may have missed a communication about this (or perhaps I'm just being premature), but is there any info yet about the overnight control..?

Hi, I have volunteered at the Lilleshall control.  I am planning to start planning my travels to Lilleshall.  So as not to overload Danial could the controller pm me with an idea of what time he/she wants us to be there to open the control and when they expect to close the control?

Thank you

Last time there was a hall about 2km South of the  Lilleshall control.  Air beds and blankets in the main hall and cereals were available in the kitchen.

The main control is Lilleshall Hall, this is where your card will be stamped and food served.
An additional hall for sleeping is a few km past the control at Sherriffhales. The hall will have airbeds and a wake up service and a very limited breakfast.

Will there be blankets or do I need to bring a sleeping bag etc.?

Blankets and Airbeds (same as LEL) will be provided. Simple breakfast will be available.

Just to clarify this (from http://www.aukweb.net/events/detail/19-461/):

"plus beds and blankets at overnight controls and a free bag drop to the main overnight control in Lilleshall."

So there's actually only one overnight control for sleeping, with beds and blankets, which is at Sherriffhales? And it's first come, first served - if so, how many places?

What about the bag drop option - do you have to pick it up at Lilleshall, even if you're sleeping at Sherriffhales (then return it to Lilleshall)?

Just trying to sort out the logistics!

Don't worry; the bag drop has been cancelled (check your email) so you will have all your kit with you :thumbsup:

Nice to recall rolling up there last time. 2015 was my first 600 and first experience of the LEL/WCW team organisation. You'll work out the sleeping, it'll be fine. Last time I skipped the main sleep, it chucked it down and I arrived at the extra sleep stop soaked and shivering. I had no idea what I needed but the controllers there gently shepherded me to a pit. I got the wake up call on time and was handed a dry outer top, they'd put it in some sort of drying room. Despite many subsequent arrivals they knew which were my shoes and saddlebag. A brew and a slice of toast and homeward bound. All the controls, like LEL, were great.
I'm injured and sadly out of qualifying now but pleased to be helping at Broadwell control with others. See you out, and back.

Danial has quickly replied...

"The main sleep stop is indeed in Sherriffhales/Lilleshall. It will be first come first served and I hope to have about 100 beds there for about 160 riders."
