Great route, but feed stop was very basic (food under a gazebo, no toilets) and no food/drinks at the finish.

A fantastic informal yet well run event. The course was outstanding, so much so I have revisited parts of it on training rides since.

Thank you to the organisers and support staff for a great day. I would highly recommend anyone to participate in this event and visit this part of the world on your bike!

I enjoyed the ride despite the horrible weather at the start and thought it was a well organised event. Will definitely consider doing it again - I might even manage to cycle all the way up the big hill next time!

Brilliant event - some challenging climbs, and beautiful scenery. The perfect way to start your season, and see how well you've prepared over the winter months!

The facilities are second-to-none for this event, with staff / support nearing what you would expect from RideLondon / L2P. A quite brilliant team behind it all.

Looking forward to next year!

A beautiful and challenging course. A low key and small event with one feed stop. The course attracts some keen and competant riders. I would certainly recommend more signage and more impactful signs that would be easier to spot. Small number of female participants, perhaps reflecting the amount of climbing.
