Arrangements for entry to the 2019 3 Down and how to give up your place for a refund

Wanting to enter?

General entry to the 3 Down London New Forest 2019 is now over. I have some places reserved for women riders and for riders of either gender who are Willesden CC members.  For anyone not fitting those categories I am running a waitlist. If I can match you with someone cancelling you can get their place. Strictly first come, first served. Details below

Wanting to cancel

If you want to drop out of the event you can and if I can match you with someone on the waitlist, I will then refund you, less a handling charge of £5.00. Please do not be tempted to hand over your ride entry to a friend: I reserve the right for me and other helpers to ask for ID at the finish. See below for details.

How to enter if you are a woman or WIllesden CC Member.


Locate an entry form here, download it and complete it. Please enter AUK or Cycling UK number if you have either.  Attach  the completed form to an email. Please put a subject in of " 3 Down Entry by myname" e.g. "3 Down entry by Jackie Smith" or "3 Down Entry by Sally James" and address the email to ianaudax@gmail.com.

Once you have sent the email, you need to pay. You will need a PayPal account (they are easy to set up).
If you have a paypal account then  simply login and pay me  (ianaudax@gmail.com). It is £21 for AUK/Cycling UK members who supply a membership number, £24 for anyone else. I am supplying a service so you should use that option when asked.

If you do not have a paypal account, create one and then pay me.

Your entry is only accepted when I have both the form and the payment. I will confirm - but you may need to wait a few days.

Entries will close midnight Monday April 1st, or earlier subject to numbers.

If there are problems with entering, please let me know and I will try and sort them out.

How to be waitlisted


Send an email to ianaudax@gmail.com with a subject that reads "myname wants to be waitlisted for the 3Down" e.g. "Gerald Roberts wants to be waitlisted for the 3 Down". Proper names, please, so I can match up what you send later. Waitlisting will be closed off at midnight on Sunday March 31st, or earlier if it is clear you will have no chance of getting a place.
You will be put in a queue until I can match you with a cancellation. I will let waitlisted people know if there is no chance of  getting a place. If I can "match" you (ie. you are the 7th person waitlisted person and the 7th cancellation has taken place) then I will email you. At that point you will need to enter the event (see below). You have 48 hours to respond to my email after which you will lose your place in the queue. The figure will be 24 hours from midnight Friday March 29th.

Please put a subject in of " 3 Down Entry by myname" e.g. "3 Down entry by Joe Smith" or "3 Down Entry by Steve James" and address the email to ianaudax@gmail.com.

Once you have sent the email, you need to pay. You will need a PayPal account (they are easy to set up).

If you make a payment after the 48/24 hour limit, I will refund you less a £5 handling fee.

If there are problems with entering, please let me know and I will try and sort them out.

How to cancel


Email ianaudax@gmail.com with a message subject of  "myname wants to cancel riding the 3 Down" i.e. "Julian Davies want to cancel riding the 3 Down."

Your name goes in a queue and when I have a replacement rider that has entered and paid you are cancelled. The queue is cleared in order of rider payment, not rider adding to the waitlist. You will be refunded ONLY VIA PAYPAL all but £5 of what you paid. You need to be sure that you have an open Paypal account with the right email address to pay you. If your account details have changed you must tell me and I will pay that account - there may be some extra charges that I will pass on at cost.

If there is more than one of you cancelling together one email is OK. I will put you in the queue in order of listing on the email.

If there are not enough waitlisted entrants to cover every cancellation, then those at the back of the queue will not get a refund.

Sunday March 31st at Midnight is the  deadline for cancelling. After that date no refunds will apply.
