On the plus side, means I can now make it, unless of course the TCR that was supposed to happen this year, and is now happening next year, gets bumped yet again... Which is entirely plausible.

Sad,  but not surprised.  Really tough call for Daniel to make. I will be there for2022. :thumbsup:

A shame, but entirely expected and I think much more sensible than taking a chance on things in the UK being stable by next summer.
I say a shame in part because next year is a round number in age, and it'd be nice to mark it with something.

Given that some of us have done feck all long distance stuff this year, it's a relief knowing that we have another chance to get back up to scratch.
Brave decision but the right one. Nobody's making positive commitments on events for first half of next year in either business or leisure as far as I can see. "3 weeks to flatten the curve". I wish.

Wise decision. 

One interesting knock on effect is that LEL will presumably now be an eligible BRM ride vis a vis pre qualifying for PBP2023 which might stoke up demand compared with a non PBP-1 year scenario.  Edit - assuming PBP2023 actually happens in 2023!

From a slightly selfish point of view Ive a basic 1000km event pencilled in for late June 2022 (Edin - Adeen - Edin - Lancaster - Edin) which im hoping can still go ahead.

And peaking for LEL should make it easier to maintain fitness for PBP. The same  PBP that I (and several others) said that I didn't want to do again.

You mean like I said 2/3 way round in 2007. “I’m only going to finish this so I don’t have to come back”.

Yeah sorry to mention PBP2023 so early.   :o

Note: as of 1 hour ago only on the main Facebook page, not on the website or the volunteers Facebook (but that undoubtedly will follow). Given the evolution of the world (inside and outside UK) and the pandemic this is probably a wise decision, no matter how much we might not like it.
I am now volunteer for 2022 (and will go to my niece's wedding in august 2021 - unless that gets moved yet again, due to YKW)

My day job is spectacularly busy at the moment, so please forgive me for any delay while I get the messages out. I'm just updating the website and will probably send emails later in the week.

I think this is the right decision,  as painful as it must be to make it.

Here's hoping for a great event in 2022

I'll give you odds of 99 to 1 it gets bumped again  :'(

Did you check for your membership number in the linkbin the post directly above yours?

1 Jan announcement: "The LEL team originally announced that guaranteed ["early"] entry would be available to "Audax UK members who were members on 12 September 2018, and remain members on 1 January 2021". However with LEL being moved back to 2022, this has changed to add the requirement to remain a member on 1 January 2022. If you want to check your situation please look at this file listing [link above] the membership numbers that are currently eligible - this now reflects renewals up to 31st December 2020."

There are (only) 4304 numbers on this list. I'm surprised that so large a percentage of the Audax UK membership are such transient members, given there's been 8000+ members in 2018, 2019 and 2020. Or maybe that's 1000 odd members who have failed to renew 'on time'.

Many join for one year when/after they do their first Audax, of those many go on to renew, but I suspect neither have happened in 2020
