My only criticism is that at sign in there was only one person taking on the day entries as a result the queue was a mile long and it took me well over 40 minutes to get a number. There were loads of other 'helpers' standing round doing nothing and they could have helped the poor bloke who was doing the on the day entries.
Also I was last man out and for some reason my exit wasn't recorded and I haven't got an official time for the ride.
The ride itself was great with the wind throwing in an extra challenge for the day.

Straford Tempest sportive 100mile Epic course was my first sportive. The whole day out was amazing. 10 out of 10 !!!!!!! If you are ever thinking about doing a sportive this would be the one. The start , the course and the event was planned great. Theres feeding stations every 25miles which are well stocked with everything you need, its endless. The bike mechanic support was great(had to contact them 8 miles in, had gear problems) The finish was easy to navigate, cross the line and your handed your medal , t-shirt and more food. The views on the route are worth looking around and taking in, the weather on the day did help was hot and sunny. This is a great well planned sportive.

Very good facilities, signage the best I've encountered. Well stocked feed stations - even provided me with suncream when I'd run out! Well organised. The route was reasonably quick, allowing a decent pace over 95 miles, a few hills ut nothing nasty - some exceptional countryside and despite it being on a Saturday - it was not that busy at all - so a good choice of roads.

The only thing to let it down was lack of personnel manning the refreshment stand at the end. One person was serving when I arrive. To queue up for drinks for 5 mins when dehydrated and exhausted after 5 1/2 hours of riding, suffering from cramp was not pleasant!
