For those who have not heard of it, coming up in May (Sunday 27th) there is a sportive called the Chiltern Hundred.
This is a 110 mile (two other distances also available 75 and 54 miles) ride around the Chilterns with some great climbs and scenery. I have reserved a team for the Nomads which guarantees us 15 places. There are no upper limits to the number of people we have in the team with further places available through general sale, subject to availability (i.e. first come first served). This is not a race and people can ride it at their own pace, with Gold, Silver and Bronze times set by the organisers for targets for the more competitive among us which means that we don't all have to ride together if people want to ride at different paces.
Details can be found on the following website:
Now that you are all itching to sign up, here is what you need to do. Go to this page: http://www.chiltern-hundred.org.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=86&Itemid=59 which has the link to enter.
Enter the sportive as an individual but when it asks if you are part of a team enter "HITCHIN NOMADS".
The 15 team places will be held for us until the 1st April, after that any spaces not taken will go on general sale on the 2nd. This event will not clash with the interclub series or any other HNCC event (apart from the clubrun on that Sunday), so would be great to have a few riders, plus we get a free team photo.
