Much improved event, did it last year and ITP events have obviously listened and learn't from that experience to deliver an improved route and very well organised event. Look forward to doing it again next year, well done.

Really enjoyed this one. Route was excellent with a very exciting finish on the cobbled hill climb that had riders buzzing with anticipation during the ride. Did not stop at feeds so could not comment on them except for was at a good distance. Loved the printout at hq of your current position. Would have been good to of had time standards to ride for. Can't fault the route, 63 miles. Was very fast. Signage was adequate and riders friendly. Finishing in such an iconic and historic part of Lincoln was fab. Perfect to grab a post ride pint and a pie. Was great to be cheered and clapped up the final climb. Well done. Hope to be back next year to do the longer route

This may sound a little negative but i believe for a 25 pound entry fee i feel a little short changed. For one the course distances were changed only being told due to road closers a week before the event. The timing chip did not take into account feed stops. Basic phone apps have this function. There was no goodie bag at the end. I have recieved a lot more at sportives that have cost a fraction of the price. On the plus side the roads were lovely and quiet. And the company along the way was great. I believe that the organisers of such events really need to look at the pricing of these events. I feel they could be damaging an obviously growing passtime. And also pricing certain sections of the community getting involved.

Great to have such a well run sportive on our doorstep...more please! Lincolnshire is a fabulous county to cycle around and contrary to popular belief, not all flat...the Wolds are very up and down and beautiful and provide the perfect mix for cycling. Well done and thank you.

This was my first sportive event. I loved it. I felt supported though I cycled a lot of the time on my own. The route was clearly marked out and the roads beautifully quiet. My chip did fly off the ribbon it was on, so had to go back and find it on the road, but fortunately it wasn't far back. I would certainly do the whole thing again. Had a wonderful weekend. Thank you to all those who organised the event.

Not a great fan of having to 'dip' your chip, delay in recording time when a group arrive at the same time. Much prefer activation as you ride under start/finish.

Loved the event, great finish.
My only criticism would be that on other events I have participated in with a similar fee have rewarded riders with goody bags/medals or T shirts on completion.
