Apart from the danger element, this is the fastest sportive course I have ridden and as long as the cowboys are marshalled it is a brilliant event!!

incredibly fast course, nearly all cornering super fast on mostly 2 lanes wide, and safer than I thought it would be for 20,000 riders! although it was dry, could be a lot different in the wet! Would definitely do it again, what a buzz!

Wow what an event!! Perfect weather, location and course was as good as you will get with many iconic landmarks along the route. The atmosphere was like no other cycling event and to ride on closed roads has to be worth the effort for any cyclist regardless of standard. Leith and Box Hills were fantastic and the road surface all the way was superb. Well done London and thanks to all Londoner's who were out supporting the riders many of whom were raising money to help make a difference. This is what makes Britain Great!!

Fantastic opportunity to ride the Olympic route from 2012 on closed roads, superb atmosphere in London and the towns we passed through. Support and cheering throughout - definitely helped raise the profile of cycling firmly in the UK!

Outstanding, unbelievable, memerising, inspiring are words that do not do this justice.
For being run for the first time on a mind blowing scale was brilliant.
Agree with all comments so far.
Marshalls warning you at all points with whistles. Fast flowing course, missed breaking 5 hours by 36seconds but so happy.
Medal nice, results posted by 9pm last night and pictures also that are still filtering through.
Thanks to all Londoners and Surrey for let us use your closed roads for an awesome experience. Thank you Boris. Other sportives should note how to produce accurate data promptly. Just brilliant see you in 2014 as will buy a charity place to guarantee entry.

Great ride and superbly organised giving the scale of the thing! I was one of the first to set off at 6.19 and left the start on the dot. The route was fast and flowing and brilliant support even that early in the morning. Feed and water stations were at regular intervals and nice touch of staff handing out gels around the 15 mile to go mark. I'm hoping they do a "good for age" rating like the marathon so I can get a guaranteed place next year!

Wasn't sure what to expect with a 20,000 rider sportive, but it turned out to be an amazing day. The organisation was perfect, everything had been thought about and planned. Although it took along time to get starter, the waiting/hold pens worked fine and everyone managed to start at exactly the time we were told we would.

The open roads were truely amazing. Never experienced anything like this before and it was out of this world. With the added spectators cheering all along the route just added to the event.

I was concerned that with the numbers of riders everything would clog up on the hills, but thankfully this didn't happen. There were a few walkers on Leigh Hill, but they kept over to the left to allow everyone else to ride.

The Hubs and drink stations were amazing. Never seen anything like it to that scale, but it just worked! You could get what you wanted and pretty quickly, before getting back on the road.

And to top the day, I overtook Boris on Leigh Hill. :-)

Overall this day beat my expecations, a totally amazing, awesome, crazy, inspiring, fun day.

Thank you Prudential Ride London. I will be back in 2014 to do it again.

100 miles of closed roads made this feel like a 'proper' event - you didn't need to worry about anything but the cycling. Getting to sprint finish on the Mall was a fantastic experience
