This year I competed in the Pearson 150 (kms) and I plan to do it again in 2011. The entry list is now open for up to 1,000 riders and hopefully they will arrange for the fantastic weather we had this year to be cooler next year. They are also improving the signage and adding a few marshalls, which should mean that I will do the whole route, rather than go off course and do a reduced distance. The course starts at the Royal Marsden, as the purpose of the event is to raise money for the hosptial. The entry fee is therefore higher than the normal sportive and comes in at £25. The route goes via Merstham, Haywards Heath, Ditchling Beacon, Brighton, Dorking, Epsom Downs and back to Sutton.
Note that I have not signed up yet because the date of our Kingston to Worthing time trial has not yet been fixed and this could be one of the dates.

This one will make your eyes water! 65 miles and 1400m of climbing! A pleasant but hard 4 hour ride taking in Leith Hill, Wisborough Green, Kirdford, Albury and Whitedown.
We have 6 riders signed up for this event on 13 March 2011, John, Nick, Richard, Ben, Stuart and me. I have just checked the organisers site to see that 389 riders have entered which leaves only 11 places remaining.
