Apart from the bit from Lockerbie to East Kilbride into a nasty headwind

Well done, Dave. That’s another tick for Team MK. I’ll have to do it one day (going through lots of Wetherspoons).
Bikes are for riding, not cleaning!

Finished on Friday, lots of rain and cold, although some good tail wind. (Tandem)

I'd not spotted this thread . . . .

I have just re-vamped my   www.cycle-endtoend.org.uk  website (newer technology and tidying up the text/content)

At the moment the Audax mention is out of date - if someone would like to make contact and let me have the content that should be there (and anything else) I'll be delighted to publish it)      See  https://www.cycle-endtoend.org.uk/rides/audax-rides

You can list your ride in the calendar and if you are of a mind to write a journal or whatever that can be published too ... and all for free!!

[There is a contact form on the website, or PM from here]

Very unlikely... multi-day event, sharing accommodation will probably be difficult to organise safely.

"Surely hope it will be possible to ride LEJOG 2021"

Hopefully but probably about 50/50. I suppose it depends on the efficiency of the new vaccine as well as the lifting of the suspension currently in place by AUK for events at that distance.

Best to keep an eye on the event website. Link attached below.

All the 2021 entrants, including those that transferred their entry over from last year will be receiving latest update emails shortly. Same goes for Inverness 1200 and Pendle 600!

Depends on
A) how many riders have been vaccinated
B) level of cases in the country at the time

If majority of riders are over 50 and live in the UK, there’s a good chance they will have been vaccinated

As well as AUK lifting the suspension for events of that distance after the lockdown.

I'll probably ride the Pendle 600 if Covid conditions allow - is there a way of registering interest even if calendar events aren't enterable on the AUK site currently?

All entry mechanisms have been blocked off, as you've said. Don't think there will be an issue getting a place on the Pendle 600 though, so registering an interest is nugatory (except for personal motivation). Might be an issue completing it, though!
Consider Deano's SR600 as a hilly alternative with attractive images required as an integral part of the ride.

Ah yes I have unfinished business with the Pendle, almost certain that Yorkshire will be sunny with tailwinds this year though : )

A full list of events we're hoping to organise in 2021 can be found on the website at: https://burnleyccevents.com/

I'd expect the Delightful Dales 200; Knock Ventoux 300; Tan Hill 200 and Glasgow 600 to go ahead with a 30-rider limit. I wouldn't be sure about the others.

There's little chance of the Pendle 600 becoming fully booked up.

After all the transfers are complete there's likely to be about 30 places left on LEJOG!
