My first sportive and longest ride for many years. A very well organised and enjoyable event. This event has certainly peaked my interest in the sportive scene and I hope to ride a few more this year. I will definitely ride this event again next year.

Second sportive and longest ride to date. Big event, well organised with good information provided prior to ride, route changes etc. Well done to all helpers/organisers. Will be back next year.

A super 100 miles based on a lovely city - worth the journey from Epsom. A long way to the first control at 42 miles. No medal or certificate after as a souvenier.

A good event only affected by a change of route due to roadworks that meant the first aid station was at 40 miles (a bit too far).

Missed first feed station, saw sign that it was aproaching but must have blinked and mised it. Didn't affect my ride though. The climb up Michaelgate was very memorable for the cobbles and the spectators clapping!!

a good well organised event, enjoyed course and scenery, the only improvement for me would be a bit of savory food at the stations, there's only so much sugar and sweet you can eat! the sarny's at the end would have been an ideal en route alternative! other than would do again and recommend.

Only issues were the man who decided to drive down michaelgate when everyone was coming up and the old woman who told me off for pushing my bike on the footpath when I got cramp. Both out of organisers control

It was a great event, despite the 40km of stiff headwind I loved it all. Next year I'll have to be fitter.

My First sportive, did the short route, everything was spot on, mid way feed stop was particularly good with good choice of foodstuffs. Well done to whoever made the 'wall' of sandwiches at the finish as well. Cobbled uphill finish really tests the resolve but plenty of spectators encouragement made sure i made it, will definetly be back again and recommend it to anyone.

I thoroughly enjoyed your event. I did this sportive as a challenge to see how well I had recovered from a spiral fracture of my right femur and other pelvic injuries I sustained in a crash on the 23rd October 2011. Your revised short distance proved challenging for me, but I came thru' it rejuvinated in that fact that I could still cycle and post a time of 4-07.21. Keep the 63 mile circuit, your Sportive deserves it - especially the finish up Michaelgate - Brilliant. I'll be back next year.

I did the short course both this year and last year and the feed station was much better supplied last year, although good this year, there were no hot drinks and only one part filled water urn. This was the only thing that was a little disappointing i think its a great sportive, the route is lovely and the marshalls were all very helpful.

Feed stops slightly too sugar based. Could have done with some starchy comestibles.
Pleasant people operating feed stops. Good course - very scenic.
Event could be linked in with other partners more to help promote cycling / Lincolnshire - plenty of room at start/finish venue for it. My first sportive and for me it lacked a social aspect - but it may not relate to just to this event. Enjoyed it though - thanks.

the only issue for this event would be sign post the route from the finnish to the race HQ / car park.
i know there was a route on the rear of the map but the last thing on my mind was reading this after the effort of getting up that hill.
