I'm not riding PBP this time, but this thread is making me realise I should probably try to get a 1000+ in 2022 to make sure I've got the best chance in 2023...

Should perhaps try to persuade Ivo to make sure we've got a nice flat 1000+ in .nl in 2022...

The PBP facebook page has comments from ACP saying it will all be fine for 400k riders anyway and there are plenty spaces remaining. I'm unconvinced but maybe they know something I don't (such as the real limit may be higher than advertised; they may also know about how many duplicates there are in the ride data).

Or you could buy a recumbent and register as a special ;D At least, it was my impression that there's no limit on those (at the moment)?

Julia: Borders of Belgium is flat(tish), I recorded 5727 metres climbing in 451km for the Ardennes section, the rest is easy going. Besides, the way you're going you'll laugh at a hilly ride in 2022  :)

I recorded 6500m if climbing in the middle 500km  (roubaix to vise) and after the second sleep stop it was headwinds almost all the way back.

Rondon Luxembourg starting in Maastricht is easier. Hardest thing was the tedium of riding beside the rivers/canals all the time. I was really missing hills by the end. Although there was a nice section between saarbrucken and the mosel valley.

My guess, one of you is using a Wahoo, and one is using a Garmin?

I have got an extra 50km for my extra 800m so the difference in equivalent length may be quite small.

Just saying borders of belgium is half flat and half hilly. And half of the flat will be headwinds so only the first 200km is easy.

You can already create an account, and add your AudaxUK affiliation. That will populate your "results" page. May be wise to write down the homologation number of your 600km ride in 2018 so you can blitz through the registration.

Plus PayPal account or credit card details for the deposit you need to pay.

This would be my exact advice together with a Paypal account ready to be accessed for payment.
Once you achieve pre-registration, note the number because you'll be asked for that in order to provide the reference for Paypal payment. Mine was in the 1400s (on 15 Jan) so I'll guess a rider pre-registering tonight will be in the 2000s and tomorrow in the 3-5000s.
The quicker you register the earlier (in the 90hr starts) a start time will be available (if that is your aspiration). I expect 1845 (90hr) is the earliest currently with spaces left.

Just trying to set up my account so I can register tonight. I'm not a member of any cycling club but there is no option to select that? Any ideas? Can I still register tonight without that?

Can confirm for the 1000+'s it was 2300 GMT. (UST for fellow pedants)

I think club is optional. I just deleted mine, saved, logged out and in, then re-entered club. The rules say open to members of the various french organisations and ALL international riders.

I'm sure you are right. In the end I did find a Spanish Independent option, very weird indexing though.

If you go to the "Members > My Details" page on AUKWeb, what does it say under "ACP Club"?

23:00 — MELTDOWN!  ::-)

We got there in the end, though — 18.00 start, along with another six riders who all leapt on that one available place at the same time  :thumbsup:  That means we'll be following the specials up the road, and they'll likely be MUCH quicker than us, so we'll be like the hares being chased by the proverbial hounds (all the later starters) ... hmm, perhaps I should've aimed a bit later ???
