This was our first sportive that myself & our 14 year old daughter completed & couldn't have been better. Lovely scenic route with plenty challenging areas along the way. Very friendly organisers/marshals with great spot prizes when crossing the finish line & food station was brilliant.

A challenging sportive that was really well organised by friendly staff and volunteers. The food at the feed station was exceptional and there was plenty of it. My only criticism of the event is that the signage could have been more visible by being bigger and bolder.

For a first sportive at the ripe old age of 67 and a couple of stones overweight this was truly a test, a bit more effort and I could have finished dead last but it was really a good day out. Highly recommended.

An enjoyable fairly low key event, with good organisation and a friendly feel. My main complaint is that I feel a fraud. I was definitely not the fastest over the longer route, but rather a middling time on the shorter one.

This was my first sportive and I wasn't disappointed , from the friendliness of all involved to the superb feed stop ,all topped off with some stunning views on the quiet rural roads of North Cumbria/Scotland .
My only constructive criticism was that some of the signage could have been more in your face and sited better .
See you next year for the invasion :-)

Really great event which I certainly recommend. The route was excellent with very little traffic and included many climbs to challenge even the most hardened riders. I'm sure the organisers will succeed in making this event a classic which I will continue to support. If I can give some constructive feedback it would be to ask for better warning signs on dangerous descents (I went straight across a main road at the end of the decent into Langholm - which was very dangerous) and more gents toilet facilities as the one cubicle meant a very long wait !!. In summary a fantastic event on fantastic roads run by a great team - well done

Well organised in a great location, good route option of longer and shorter route. Feed station excellent and well located. Should become a regular event.
