I rode the first version of this sportive last year and was a bit concerned the 2012 event would be a wetter, less enjoyable one. The rain that did fall seemed to be more isolated in nature than forecast. Slight changes to the Tame route removed any chance of it being a replica of last year's ride. No Rockingham Hill to climb/walk up straight after the food and drink stop meant I rode up all of the hills I walked up last year! A very friendly and sociable time was spent talking to various riders with topics ranging from cramp to the red kites that appeared overhead. At the feed station there were plates of homemade cake and flapjacks to go with the usual bananas, washed down with replacement sports drink. Good to see ex-pro Harry Lodge riding and seeming to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere at the village hall finish in the village of Southwick.Sadly I didn't win any of the raffle prizes on finishing and having my number checked. I did see the lucky winner of a bike bag carry it off to his car and found out later he had a cycling holiday planned for Majorca in the near future so he must have been very happy. Many thanks to Ian Wild for organising and running this event with the help of other Peterborough Cycling Club members.
