I have a place for Pure Peak Grit ...

I believe PPG and APN require helmets. And neither are Audaxes. Just saying ...
Can find no mention of the 'h' word in the APN Rulz.

No, no helmets required - I checked when it looked as though I"d be riding.

Unfortunately I don't think those links are exhaustive - when I applied I am pretty sure I ticked a box accepting that I was going to wear a hi visibility fluoro vest (supplied with the entry pass....) and a helmet at all times. I hope I'm wrong but that's what I recall. Real shame.

For those who didn't get in, what is to stop you going to Sheffield, sit round the corner from the start and then set off and do the ride. There are no prizes/medals, no infrastructure to speak of , just a set of controls that arent manned so you aren't stealing anyones  glory/supplies, Its 'just a 1000km audax with a nice website. Do it and fail, that would have happened. Do it and succeed you get the same prize as anyone else.

Well it isn't an audax because there is no route!

Cap number #11 (I asked for #187 but they said no :( )

See some of you in May. the rest can chuckle and gawk at me via Spotr.

Also reading the race manual, result! Magic hats are optional :)

How did you know your cap number already?

They asked if I had a preferred number after I said I'd love the waiting list place and offered to pay immediately (which I did).

I did ask for #187 but they said numbers 1-60 only.

Fair enough :)

I'll look forward to receiving mine, though I'm in a pair so maybe ours will be A/B or something.

Do pop them an email if there are some numbers you might like in particular. I don't know how many pairs places there are but numbers above 61 are yours.

The 'taken' numbers as of this morning were:  Caps 1, 3, 13 (!!??), 37, 39, 59 and 60  (and now #11 which is me).

So I assume this means I was 6-7th on the waiting list who accepted a place.

http://www.allpointsnorth.cc/apn20-rider-cap-numbers/ cap numbers are out.

Approx 25% of the solo riders are women, about 33% of the pairs riders.

Although I didn't get a place, the organisers did mention another event which might be of interest - http://normandicat.com/#section-one
