2024 Rider Medals
 

We're pleased to say that we've settled on our rider medal design for 2024 and, once again, a fab-looking bespoke medal will be waiting at the finish for everyone who completes the 2024 Mendips Lakes and Lumps Ride :)

 

The Lakes & Lumps route is spectacular with some fabulous scenery along the way and, while it's not without its challenges, it isn't overly long and so it's a really nice way to start the Summer.


However, it's just worth noting that a good chunk of the climbing comes in the latter stages of the route - so it's definitely a good test, and you will KNOW that you've well & truly earned your medal when you cross the finish line.


And all you need to do to get your hands on one of these is to make sure that you get signed up for the Ride via our Online Entry page, then get some training in over the coming weeks if you can (the more you can do the easier it will feel!).


Thereafter it's just a case of going out and enjoying the challenge on the day, so please do come and join us if you haven't entered already and bring as many friends, colleagues, family, etc with you as you can.


Sign up NOW and make sure that one of these medals has got YOUR name on it!

NEW! Lakes & Lumps Withdrawal Policy
 

We want to do everything we can to make it easy for people to enter our events at the earliest opportunity, because it can make a big difference to us AND to our riders:


FOR US


Having a good idea of likely numbers helps us massively with our planning and preparations, especially when so many elements have to be booked/ordered/paid for well in advance in order to be able to deliver the standards, services & facilities that we want to offer.
 

FOR RIDERS


Entering early gives people plenty of time to prepare & practise for their challenge; it can provide the motivation that's sometimes needed to get out & ride; it's definitely something positive to look forward to over the winter months; and, for those who make good use of the available preparation time, it should hopefully lead to those people generally feeling fitter, happier and healthier as a result.


So, to encourage & facilitate early sign-up, we've come up with a very clear and transparent 'withdrawals policy' for our riders for 2024 that we believe is both fair to riders and to us.


Obviously, hopefully everyone appreciates that there comes a point at which we have to fully commit on all our services & expenditure etc (exactly the same as any other event) so the options available to us inevitably reduce as the event date approaches, however if anyone who's entered for any of our events in 2024 needs to withdraw for ANY reason then the following options will be available:


ANY TIME UP TO 8 WEEKS PRIOR TO THE EVENT DATE

 

Entry fee refund (minus £5 admin fee);
or

Entry transferred to one of our other events in the same year, if still available (FREE);
or

Entry carried forward to the same event for the following year (FREE);
or

Entry transferred to another person (FREE).
 

UP TO 3 WEEKS PRIOR TO THE EVENT DATE

 

Entry transferred to one of our other events in the same year, if still available (FREE);
or

Entry carried forward to the same event for the following year (FREE);
or

Entry transferred to another person (FREE).
 

UP TO 72 HOURS PRIOR TO THE EVENT

 

Entry transferred to another person (FREE).


So, as you can see, if something unexpected happens or crops up after you've entered with us there are options available right up until just THREE DAYS before the event - our view is that this is a fair & reasonable approach to take; we believe it's more flexible & accommodating than most other equivalent events offer; and hopefully it will give you the confidence & the peace of mind to get your entry in NOW via our Online Entry page.

So come on, it really does make a difference - enter early and help us to help you!
