Pretty much the perfect sportive. Really well organised, plenty of space to prepare and park before the event. Well signposted all the way round and really friendly people helping on the day.
Food stations were spot on with biscuits, fig rolls, bananas, water etc. The route was good, going through small Cotswolds villages, along with a nice mix of rolling terrain, hills and descents.
Post ride it was great to see you get a free meal of pasta, cheese and tomato or pesto along with a tea of coffee. This was great as usually I just pack up and leave but I actually sat down and chatted to a few other riders which made the day all the more fun.
Also, a lot of riders like a good medal and Im no exception, its a great reminder of the day and event and the medal given for this event is really nice, a good design and is different to bog-standard round cheap ones Ive been given in the past.
Overall the event was great, couldn't fault it, will be returning next year.

I wanted to say thanks very much for VeloEvents efforts in organising the sportive.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and appreciated the efforts of all concerned.
The feed stops were well stocked and the support crew were cheerful and helpful.
Fabulous weather also showed the Cotswolds at its best and I've the photos to prove it.

Lots of hills around the Cotswolds with some real screaming descents as well, I wish our road surfaces were better in the UK though. This event had just the right mix of up and down for me and I'll have no trouble recommending the long route for next year as well.

Very good event - HQ had great facilities overall. Showers with hot water! These could have done with a clean to remove the footballers mud from the previous day to get a 10.

dull first 40 miles. Having all the climbing in the last half of an event has its own challenges and makes for a tough ride but it lends itself to a blisteringly dull first half, which this was.
