Brilliant event, our second year doing the 100. Shame more people don't stay on after as the BBQ and beer tent are very welcome. Stewards/marshals and everyone else involved could not do any more to help.

Superb event, good company. Some rerouting due to flooded ford meant use of busy road but weather related so couldn't be avoided.

This was the first time we had done it
And it has become an instant "must do" for us
Only closed-road events are better
So this is right up there with the very best of the "open-roaders"
A real credit to the organisers
Brilliant !

Nice mix of terrain and mostly quiet roads and pretty villages. Really well organised, fun start/finish village, friendly volunteers on feed stops and great support from marshalls. The only minor fly in the ointment was the slightly ambiguous sign right at the end which we mis-interpreted, lost a couple of minutes and probably cost us a silver time :) Even that was removed as soon as we pointed it out though.

My first Red Kite event and throughly enjoyed it. Organisation was excellent the route was excellent and was nice to go through areas that weren't too traffic busy. Was particularly Impressed with the pit stops. BBQ and socialising at the end was also very good. A definite event that will be on my calender for next year. Thank you for a great event

The 50 mile course was very well planned. Great scenery along reasonably safe roads. This was my first sportive and I feel encouraged to have another go. No major criticisms but it would have been good to have a more visible cycling club recruitment presence (not just Marlow Riders).

Great event, 2 improvements, firstly clear signs back to the free car park, got a bit lost.....and secondly I love a medal at the end !

Will do it again though, just a shame some roads are poor condition, nothing you can do there though Many thanks !

My first sportive, really enjoyed it. I rode the 80 mile route which offered me the challenge I needed having taken up road cycling in May this year. I think Marlow Riders put on a terrific event, well done to them. Everybody was friendly and happy to help if you needed assistance. A great sportive through some stunning countryside which I would be happy to recommend to fellow cyclists. Thank you Marlow Riders!

Feed stations were really good again - just a tiny request from me (and this is really really picky and personal to me as I don't really like sweet flapjacks, etc) - it would be great to have more savoury stuff on the early stations. There were sausage rolls on the last one (100M) which was great - thank you :-)! That is the ONLY request for a fantastic sportive that I will definitely enter again next year for the 3rd time.
