A great event, slightly let down by the long queue at the start to log on, may need to think of a slicker process as the event becomes more popular. Having said that, id definitely do it again!

In parts a fantactic course - loved the ride over and around the Quantocks but a pretty horrible return leg along the A39 and through Bridgwater (for a second time) and very busy roads round Burnham - alright if you are a drag strip time trialler but not a lot of fun for a Sunday leisure ride
Overall enjoyed the day though.

The route was very good for the most part. The only gripe was the the amount of main roads on the way back to the last feed station especially around Bridgwater. That aside it was very well run and the people at the feed stations and start/finish were great.

Overall I really enjoyed the day, but there were slightly too many busy roads for my liking, and going through Bridgwater twice in one day is twice too many! The climbs were challenging and oddly lovely (apart from Crowcombe which we missed due to signs being taken down), and the rest of the scenery was great. Everyone was very friendly, both at HQ and feedstops, and it was a really nice day in the saddle. A few extra signs, and less busy roads, and it'll be even better next year.
