Great challenging and scenic route, very slick organisation, right number of riders, and possibly the best feed stops in the business! will definitely be back next year.

Beautiful route and a challenging ride - we were lucky with the weather too which was a bonus. Feedstops well stocked. All the staff were friendly and helpful. What let it down for me was the poor signage - unlike a lot of events where there are frequent signs to reassure you that you're on track, this event had few signs so if you accidentally went off course (which I did), you didn't realise for ages. The arrows for turns were small, and difficult to read from a distance (annoying at crossroads/roundabouts), and the "go straight on" signs were more often than not a sign with an arrow pointing to the right...confusing.

Too few toilets for the boys at HQ too, and a shame there was no HQ parking.

I actually really enjoyed the ride despite the signing issues, but with a twisty course taking lots of turns to go up and over so many hills, I think some better, clearer signs would be beneficial, and more of them please.

A real challenge. Superbly organised, easy sign on, great food stop and cracking HQ. The business.

All great but the feed stops ran out of food which was annoying / frustrating / unbelieveable...! Granted we weren't the fastest, having said that having to stop at garages to buy a coffee and some flapjack certainly didn't help.

top event. Rode it in 2009 and this years was as good if not better. Superb signage and very friendly staff. Very well stocked feed stop with pretty much every brand of bar, gel etc etc. Excellent

Lovely event. Great route - tough but doable. Didn't get lost so signage must be good. Feed stops ok but a little low in quantity and choice. I believe the organisers have vowed to address that. All in all, a great day out.

Very good event, hills just keep on coming.

Agree about some of the roads.

Feed stops were very well stocked.

Very well organised and apart from the awful road surfaces the route was lovely and very challenging
