Before the start I had only ridden on average 35 miles in any one ride. A great course made better by the camaraderie along the way.

Despite the atrocious weather on the first half of the ride I thoroughly enjoyed the day. The marshals stood out on course were fab. The organisation at the start was brilliant. The food station was great, shame there was such a queue for hot drinks but think the weather played a part in that and the ladies in the hall did a fab job. This was my first but won't be my last, thank you.

My first Sportive and I can only say that the entire day was exceptional ( weather did its best to spoil it ) the event was extremely well organised, registration, signage, marshalls and feed stations were superb. Great event and already waiting to sign up again.

The weather made this a hard, hard event. What kept me going was the cheerfulness of all the helpers and marshal's who had to stand out in it for hours yet still managed to shout out encouragement.

Definitely the best sportive I've been involved in. The course was excellent with some challenging hills, very well signposted as well with never a moments doubt that we were going the right way. The food stops were nicely spaced and we'll stocked with food and drink and there were mechanics there for if you had and bike related issues.
All in all a great day, I'll definitely be back next year.

This is the first year that I've started doing Sportives. I've found myself questioning why I'm spending £30 to £35 quid to ride on my local roads and only receive a few free gels and a banana. Sportive HQ events are different, they are extremely well run with friendly staff and importantly @ £20 for an event you are not left feeling ripped off .... next year I will be avoiding the events that have charged too much and offered little... But will without doubt attend any event arranged by Sportive HQ as long as they continue to provide the outstanding service for a fair price.
