I just read the legal document, we’re definitely too late to hold a bicycle or tricycle race but as long as we’re on unicycles I think we’ll be fine! The document is pretty specific on the bicycles and tricycles bit, I don’t suppose anyone ever bothered to create a law about unicycle racing.
If someone local could check out the route (or think of a better one) that would be great. I thought that route would be easy to navigate, have the finish pretty close to the start, and you could do it with only left turns, but busy junctions or traffic lights on the route wouldn’t be good. There was another loop slightly to the east on the map, but it’s only about 5 miles so we’d have to do more laps.
Also I’ll be up for muni too, has anyone made any plans about where to ride yet? I’m guessing it won’t be too hard to find some hills to ride on in Dorset!
My annual leave form is filled in and ready to send. My registration form is filled in and ready to send. I’m just waiting for the hospital shop to open so that I can buy some stamps and registration will be on it’s way to you.
I picked up a timetable today and Holton Heath station isn’t open on a Sunday and therefore you can’t get back from there.
Looking at the map Wareham appears to closest (unless someone knows differently). Two trains an hour stop there getting down on the Friday and one train an hour goes to London on the Sunday (unless there are engineering works).
Hey Bungle (and anyone else who would like answers to lots of questions)
you can buy a ticket there, but it would help if you at least fill out the pre reg form online and comment that you will pay on the door, that way I can take you into account for you in numbers, budgets etc and you have the ability to order a tshirt.
Yes there is camping, with space for cars, it is a ‘holiday park’ after all!
venue has a pirate ship (sorry, thought that was the most important bit of info for you personally), it also has toilets and showers, restaurants, conference rooms, a shop on site, go karts, swimming pool and it’s own evening entertainment!
It is in a very small village, and we will be using halls at a school 10 min drive down the road for hockey and freestyle. With trials, informal hockey and basketball on site in the outdoor basketball courts.
hmm… all? What haven’t I covered so far? If I have forgotten anything and you cant find it on the website - www.unicycle.org.uk/bu15 then ask away and I shall tell you all I know.
If you fill in your form now, then you can pay on the 26th, or close to then. But yes, it is inclusive - but I need to place tshirt orders at lunchtime, so if you want one you better get the form filled in before then.
