Terrific route, excellent organisation. Managed a sub-5 hour Standard route (including stops) on a folder!

Better than average signage but the roundabout just out of the start could have done with a marshall - it was a busy dual carriageway and people were confused about how to get on and off the cycle lane. Lack of toilets at the feed stations was a serious problem for female riders. Route could be tweaked to avoid busier roads eg just before White Down. Results in an excel format rather than pdf would be more useful. However, great value for money and goody bag.

great ride, very tough, I always winge about the road surfaces in Hertfordshire/Beds area(my training area) but some of the surfaces on this route were bad(not complaining about Wiggle at all).
I liked the funny signs on some of the climbs, more of these please, perhaps a top of climb sign as well. I do also like a medal at the end of a sportive please keep these Wiggle, some other sportives have stopped giving these out!!!!!

Well Done Wiggle & UK Cycle Events

Loved it! It was my first sportive and although it was tough, it was a great event. Well organized on quiet roads. Thanks.

A couple of really bad patches of tarmac were not marked with a caution, and it would have been better if these stretches could have been avoided altogether, but all the roads are bad at the moment so maybe this wasn't possible. A couple of signs were easy to miss, being hidden from view until only a few yards away, but generally it was well done.

Fantastic event. A great route through the downs. I liked the sting in the tail with the toughest climbs in the last 30km. A couple of points lost for signage early on which loads of people missed but other than than the signage was excellent. Wiggle are setting new standards for sportives. Very enjoyable.

My son and I have done a few sportives and whilst they have all been enjoyable and successful in their own way, I must say that the organisation and friendliness involved in your sportive was exceptional and made for a brilliant ride, although very, very hard and especially White Downs Hill, which was sooo hard although satisfying when completed.

Well done to everyone involved for such a great day.

One of the best sportives I have ever ridden - very well signposted, feed stops in exactly the right places and well stocked, helpful marshalls, simple and quick registration and an excellently designed route that proved quite a challenge. Thank you!

Very well organised. The left hand turn off Cranleigh High St was easy to miss (in traffic, at least). The 25 mile 'Epic' loop was a bit too flat (!) - i.e. slogging along fairly dull sections of road. Perhaps Whitedown and Leith Hill could have featured a bit earlier in the route when riders legs were fresher.
Great feed stations. A comment on sportives in general, but energy drinks always seem to be much more diluted than I mix myself, i.e. stated on the packet.
A link to the results from the Wiggle website would be a good idea, perhaps on the 'selling' page which now says 'out of stock'. Finally, how about a feed station with recovery drink at the end?

On the whole a great day.
