Cycling events

Below is a list of those events which West Surrey CTC organise. (The Phil Hampton Memorial ride is an exception – it’s organised by the North Hants CTC.) These rides are intended, not only for club members, but also for other riders from other clubs. There is usually a small charge to participate, but as compensation, there’s often some refreshments thrown in.

You’ll see that, by clicking on some of the events, you’ll be taken to another page where you can find out more about the ride and also register online to ride the event. If you encounter any difficulties with doing this, or want to speak to an organiser direct, then please use the appropriate contact number using the information provided on this page in the right hand column.

Remember that if it’s an ‘Audax’ ride, you really should try to enter in advance.

The ‘Reliability Ride’ series has more relaxed entry requirements – you just enter on the line; however, it’s useful for the organiser to know that you plan to ride, so he has some idea of numbers; do please phone or email the organiser in advance (even if you end up not riding because the weather’s awful!).

ENTERING AN EVENT  As mentioned above, entry may be possible ‘on-the-line’ but please check with the organiser to avoid disappointment.  Even when entering on-the-line, it’s best to come with your Entry Form completed together with the correct ride fee. Click on the event itself (in the table above) to download a specific event entry form (if available). For AUDAX events, you must use an AUDAX event entry form. Find the event on the AUDAX calendar and download a form.

* At the time of writing we are not entirely sure about the state of play with regard to Tourist Competition events. Click here for information on the CyclingUK Tourist Competition and here for a list of what we assume will be Tourist Competition events nationwide in 2017.

Audax Events

Audax rides are organised by volunteers according to the Audax UK Rules with the route presented as a list of instructions on a route sheet, there are no direction signs placed on the route. Controls are devised to ensure that the rider follows the route: a brevet card is provided for marking at each manned control, or the rider has to answer a question at an information control.

There is an overall time limit for completion for endorsement of the brevet card. Food and drink is usually available at the start and finish; on the route, it’s generally cafés or shops. There is no support provided for riders on the route. Entry to Audax events is usually on line or by post; entry on the day may be available but there is likely to be an additional small sum to be paid.
