I'll be there as well, and luckily qualify due to my long-standing audax membership...be great if we have a huge Beacon contingent for the UK's most prestigious audax...after our own of course
Actually, getting in won't be so easy...to qualify, these are the requirements:
•London Edinburgh London 2017 and Windsor Chester Windsor 2019 volunteers
•Audax UK or Audax Ireland members who were members on 12 September 2018, and remain members on 1 January 2021.
•Anyone who has completed an event validated by Les Randonneurs Mondiaux in each of the calendar years 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 (four events in total).
•Anyone who brings a spouse or immediate family relative (parent, child, sibling) to volunteer, both at London and another control, for at least three full days
That last one is disappointing, as we have a couple of riders who want to ride but don't meet any of these qualifying requirements, and a couple of people who may volunteer...be good if we can match these people up to get the potential riders riding, but the requirements above suggest it has to be a close family member, hhhmmmm, maybe we could swing that Andy Wrightson and Philip Whiteman are, in fact, brothers!
Anyone got a DNA testing kit?
