The overall experience was brilliant,The course is fantastic, well signed and marshalled, feeds stops were well positioned and very well staffed and organised, with a great variety of refreshments.
The only thing to let it down in my eyes, was the poorly supported start and finish area, with no stalls or stands from retailers or suppliers, and only one burger van as a refreshment. I feel the ride is very popular and could benefit from a little more in this area. ( example The dartmoor Classic.)

This was my first cycle event and I was very impressed with the organisation, marshals and facility's. The route was well signed. As a keen sports man I have competed in several running events but this was by far the best event.

Great feed stations. I missed the route twice early on, but probably my fault. I did not see any on-course support, hence my lower mark.

Excellently tough route - relatively flat run-in to Dartmoor then some really tough climbs. Feed stops with quiche, pasta and baps were the best I've experienced of any sportive. Just some wine and bubbly to complete the package :) Thanks for putting up such a well organised event.

3. Signage - There were long distances between signs between Feed Stops 3 and 4 which did leave me wondering if I hadn't gone off route somehow, which fortunately I hadn't
5. Support - Didn't see a single outrider or other support vehicle all day (Extreme Route). Fortunately I didn't need one.

Overall this was my first Sportive. From attending other events (running) I've seen better organisation. At the end you had completed riders queued up getting in the way of other finishers coming across the line.

The bike numbers - for spectators and other finishers it would be excellent if there was different coloured cards for the three distances, so when i've finished I can see if the others coming in behind me are doing the same route or longer routes etc.

Would have been nice to had someone on a microphone cheering and encouraging people across the line as well.

I've done a few sportives so I have experienced the ones that aren't so well run , this most definitely isn't one of those , the chap running it even took my call late on Friday night to help me out even though he must have had 101 things to do . On the day , everything from my point of view regarding all the folks that helped run this event I could not fault even if I wanted to .
Thank you for a lovely day

I thoroughly enjoyed the ride overall, despite cramping up on the last hills ( my fault as I did not do enough distance rides)
Will definitely return next year to try to get the Gold

As my first experience of a sportive, it was a great experience. All of the stewards were incredibly helpful and cheerful - including one lovely man who changed my inner tube for me about 5 miles from the end after my friend had cycled off with our pump! (Lesson: don't share in future!). I hugely enjoyed it and it was most certainly a challenging course. Thank you!

Very well organised. A couple more toilets at the feed stations would have helped but otherwise a great day. Can't wait to do it next year

Really enjoyed the ride, lovely mix of pleasant cycling with good hill challenges. Biggest problem was the traffic on the main roads through Teignmouth, Dawlish, etc as it slowed us down and at times felt unpleasant sitting in queues.

Very well organised event. Feed stations were excellent with stock and choice. Especially the nice lady making teas / coffees at the 2nd/4th stop on the Extreme route!

One suggestion. Perhaps an option for a squash drink instead of just energy drink / water? I'm usually sick of energy drink after 70/80 miles?

Once again - great event. TOUGH course. Well organised. Would recommend. Would I do it again? Ask me when my legs are recovered!

Very good event. Route good, though more bumpy than I'd have liked in the middle (Haytor-Postbridge).
First feed stop too early to bother with - one would have ben sufficient for the 65 mile route.

I have done many sportives - this was a great one. It had a mix of short yet steep, and long gradual climbs which were a great challenge (hence the Challenge name for the 100km distance). Marshaling was excellent, food stops were very well stocked. Only issue was the signings for the first feed stop were not clear, many riders missed it including myself. However, overall a beautiful day out in the lovely Devon countryside.
