Getting a ride

How to enter

We are now full and but we operate a waiting list – it’s pretty long now but there’s a long time between now and April…

Add your details below and we’ll add you to the waiting list. When a place becomes available we’ll email you.

Remember that Audax entry fees are not normally refundable or transferable.  The costs are kept low because we budget for a number of no-shows.  That means you can not ride using someone else’s entry.

This year, the list is exceptionally long and growing – we imagine this is because 2023 is a PBP year.

Our normal tactic is to write to entrants now and again in the New Year asking if they are dropping out.   However, we are not confident that everyone on the waiting list will be offered a place – if you need a 400km for your Paris Brest Paris entry, we suggest you do not bank on riding LWL.

You might be interested in the Bare Bones version of LWL which we run on 2 June – it’s LWL without the creature comforts and it starts at 6pm on a Friday night (so that you can finish with a beer on Saturday). https://www.audax.uk/event-details/10062-bare_bones_400.

If you like a bit of adventure you might want to check out Audax Club Hackney’s Tim Sollesse’s London Circuit which runs the weekend after LWL  https://www.audax.uk/event-details/9900-london_circuit_400

And the week after that is Kingston Wheelers’ Dauntsey Dawdle – it’s getting a big following https://www.audax.uk/event-details/9921-dauntsey_dawdle and is definitely turning into one of the classics .

The other way to get involved is to sign up as a helper.

We’ll need helpers:

London-Wales-London-(89-of-78)
Unlimited tea available!
  • route checking
  • at the start from 0430 on the Saturday morning for 2.5 hours
  • checking in riders at the Woodstock control from around 0800 until about 1030
  • helping out at Lambourn control from early evening to the small hours
  • welcoming weary riders back at Chalfont from midnight until around 1000 on Sunday.

The only qualification is a sympathetic manner and a sense of fun.

If you are interested in helping out email info@londonwaleslondon.com

What entrants on London Wales London get

Entry for LWL23 will cover the cost of your food and drink at the start and finish, at Woodstock, at  Chepstow and at Lambourn.

It also covers the cost of your documentation and GPX file (which are sent shortly before the ride).

If you have any questions contact the organisers via email  and be sure to read the legal stuff on the entry page before you enter which explains the rules about entry fees.

The organisers reserve the right to decide who rides on LWL.
