Watership Down 105 km

Watership Down 105 km:


Our winter classic is on Sunday 6th January 2019. This is a challenging ride of 105 kilometres organised by Winchester CTC under Audax UK rules and starts and finishes at Jubilee Hall, London Road, Kings Worthy, SO23 7QN, just outside Winchester.

Detailed written route sheet and gpx file are provided and are sent out with your confirmation of entry.

The Hatchet Inn at Lower Chute will provide coffee/tea and biscuits. The cost is included in your entry fee

There are no entries on the day and the limit is 150 riders.

Mudguards are a condition of riding this event and this year there will be a bike check at the start to ensure that all riders have mudguards.

Mudguards are required at both the front and rear. As a minimum these can be a Crudcatcher-style guard at the front and a 'whale tail' (min 50 cm) at the back, but we strongly recommend that you fit full length mudguards, out of courtesy to the venues we use and to your fellow riders."


How to enter: 

Please download the Information Sheet (see attachment below) and if new to Audax rides the sheet entitled “Riding your first Audax”.

For postal entries, please also download the entry form (see below), complete and send with your payment to the organiser. 

For online entries (payment by PayPal), the necessary information is entered online (link is in the Information Sheet - see attachment below)

Early entry is recommended. The maximum number of entries is 150 and the event is likely to be full by early December. .  

Help required:

I am also looking for help on the day at the start before the event, the finish (booking riders back in and in the kitchen) and Lower Chute and so if you don’t fancy riding, you can still enjoy the atmosphere. Please voluneer if you can. .
