I gave a low score to timing as the Holme Moss timed climb did not work for me (although I was told it had read my chip). The sensor at Holme Bridge was pretty badly placed having to cross a busy road to get to it. I did not want or need to stop at the feed station in the car-park.

Overall the event was great and I really enjoyed the route. I would have liked to have more riders of my own ability to ride with, as I actually ended up riding the whole route on my own. Perhaps you could consider a competitive and a non-competitive version next time.

The best sportive I have been to. Great route and didn't have to worry about anything other than the cycle. Signposting, hazard marking and marshalling were all second to none. I came up on my own, but always had someone to talk to, which made for a v friendly atmosphere. Would definitely love to come back.

Only points I could make are as follows:

(i) the last feed station on the massive came for me a couple of KMs too late (I was just starting to run out of water); and

(ii) worth advising people to camp away from the brook/certain area of the sites, as have been eaten alive by the midges (or just advise people to bring midge spray!).

Top work from all concerned - thanks so much.

Martin

Fantastic event, really clearly signed with lots of friendly marshals. Very tough route, in the finest countryside taking in lots of the TdF route. The festival of cycling was great too. Will be back next year!

Really well organised and very professional. Well done to the event organisers. Only thing I felt sorry for the people selling things when the band was playing you could not talk to them.

A brilliant event. Excellent organisation and signage. Excellent marshalling and the feed stations had everything you need and plenty of it so no risk of running out. Very friendly environment with encouragement from everyone to get around.
