Does anybody know of anybody that is registered to do the London to Brighton bike ride this Sunday but can no longer do it?
I would like to but its full. I'll happily pay the fee.

You can turn up on the day and pay at the late registrations tent on Clapham Common

Can anyone advise me, I am going to Wiversfield from Lewes on Sunday, if I travel on the A275 will I be clear of the bike ride? Want to work out if I should allow more time for my journey.

I think you may be wrong smiler. there was a 5000 strong waiting list at least a month ago. I rung the BHF up to see if I could get a couple registered and they said no chance.
jr, the ride goes through Wivelsfield (Not Wivelsfield Green) on the B2112 from Haywards Heath to Ditchling. I would avoid it from 9am to 5pm

Team CSBS - Thanks, I have to be there at 12.30pm so it does not look good. Your warning however gives me time to find a way through.

They say that every year Team CSBS
I have done the bike ride 7 times now with and without my kids and always just turned up on the day and paid the fee.

They provide that option because they know a lot of people would just turn up and do it anyway if they weren't there to take the money.
They don't tell anyone because they know a lot of people would take that option and not sign up beforehand and then they could not cope with the demand on the day.

ok, I'll take your word for it. Seems odd though that they turned my money away when I called them. I was willing to pay by cc over the phone which surely would be easier than dealing with cash on the day.

You could always just donate the BHF some money without doing the ride...

Brixtonbelle - Thanks for that, will check the times of the trains. Slight problem in that I am not sure of the exact location of where I am going, it's in the country, Janes Lane, near Wivelsfield but I have no idea how far that is from the station. I have googled it but it is not very clear as to how to avoid the bike ride whether in my own car or by taxi if I take the train Thanks,

Janes Lane is adjacent from Wivelsfield Station. 50 yards

Janes lane is quite long, so depends where you are going on Janes Lane, Look up postcode RH15 0SR on Google maps, this should give you a local map.
