Rutland was my first sportive three years ago and I keep coming back. It's friendly (staff and riders) and takes part on some amazing roads. Well done on another fantastic event.

Excellent route. On the negative I don't like the timing system where the riders need to be 'swiped' this delays proceedings! It would be good if the parking were free, but you can't have everything!
Overall a very well organised event - I'll be doing it again next year!

First Sportive, loved it although I completed the Short Route it would be good to have a route between the 20 and 57 for novices like me, I had to walk up a few hills but I wasn't the only one!
Great set up when I got to the location, signposting around the route was great.

Very well organised with some great 'real' food at feed stations.

It's a hard ride with lots of small punchy hills that take it out of you but the weather was great I enjoyed the route.

I use Sportive's for training every year therefore use many event providers and by fare Rutland is the best for support, route and management. The team staff were very kind and helpful great day and some great times..!! I actually struggled to get my mates out of feed station One after they found the chocolate Brownies.

Well signed and designed course. I did the mini route and had no problems following course. Arrived too early at finish for food and no water available, but other than that excellent value and a pleasant morning ride.

Great event , well organised the only down side on the day was some of the lanes on the route had very bad surfaces I collected two punctures in no time , and saw lots of other people with there wheels out ,, I would probably do on cyclo cross bike next time NOT good for carbon ect , although lot off rain night previous so ??// but all in all very good , Ow and if your new to this its got some challenging climbs for your first event quiet a lot of people pushing bikes up the big bumps, so maybe do a flatter one for your first one ??? That's an Honest review thanks again

This was my first experiance of entering an organised event and can not praise the organiers highly enough. As previously stated from check-in through to finishing everything was well organised, great venue (toilets, food, hot/cold drinks available), well sign posted, excellant food station, great communications before and after the event. I will certainly look to take part in more of these events (I work shifts, so when possible).
The other participants on the day that I spoke to were very friendly and where enjoying the day.
Many thanks to Ian and the organisers.

Well organised from the check in right through to finish. Great venue for the start, with excellent bike shop to browse round when finished. Challenging route, with appropriately spaced and well stocked feed stations and great training for Lincoln. They even organised good weather too!
