Need to improve the feeding stations with more and diferent food.
Really enjoyed this as my first sportive. The organisation was excellent - course was very well marked out and clear instructions were given at the start; there was even a mechanic support car on course, which came in very handy when punctures hit.
Lots of hills, which I was cursing the organisers for towards the end of the ride, very little 'main' road cycling and a great course. Will definitely sign up for this one again
First Southern Sportive event for me and really enjoyed it. Very well run event and a great course if deceptively tough. Fortunate with the weather and one of the woodland descents would have been interesting with water running but will be back for this next year

Great route/ signage / professionalism but very very poor feed stations need improving.

Great ride. Excellent signposting. Feed stations could have been stocked up a bit better. Would strongly recommend for next year.
