Fantastically well organised with excellent clear signposting and good marshalling. Great route mostly along quiet rural roads. The finish up the steep but manageable Michaelgate lined with clapping spectators gives this sportive a special feel.

An enjoyable ride with enough climbing to catch out those who headed off at full thinking Lincolnshire was pancake flat, and the climb over the cobbles up to the finish at the cathedral was a real test. It was fantastic having people cheering you on up the climb, gave me extra determination to get to the top :-)

Excluding the timing problems at the start the event went well. The course was about right if it was your first sportive. No real climbs until the last hill on the course which I suspect caught a few people out with the grade. A fast run in allowed you to pick up some time. The last 500mts up the cobbles to the top of St Michealgate and finish was inspired for a sportive. The support and free food once back was excellent. A sportive I would do again.

Really enjoyed the event, great route- challenging but not murderous! Super quiet roads, lots of stock at the feeds even for late starters and also lots of food left at HQ at end of day. Maybe the 1st & 2nd feed a little close together- didn't stop at second but no great deal. The atmosphere on Michaelgate and in finish area was brilliant and really made this event stand out. Maybe rope in some local Sport Science/ massage students for the HQ to do post ride massages. Wild Edric had this last year and was much welcomed!

Will be back next year for a superb weekend of ciclismo!
