I wasn't very used to cycling with traffic on the road, but it was not too bad. Very much enjoyed it and hope to do it again next year (preferably without a cold!)

Excellent event. I didn't actually see any support staff (e.g. medical, technical).
Signage was good, but would have preferred a few more on the quiet stretches just to give me confidence I was still on the route.

Excellent Sportive and thoroughly recommended. I'm being hypercritical in my marking because my criticisms are very minor and didn't take away from my immense enjoyment of the event. The only gripes I had were that the changing rooms were locked and there was some queuing at the liquid barrels at the foodstops. There we go, only minor as I said and I'd love to do it again next year (hopefully in equally gorgeous conditions!). Thanks to the organisers for a splendid day.

Your questionnaire doesn't allow for "not applicable" responses (I didn't use the feed stations & can't really say anything about them). Also, the firm that you contracted with for photography is really poor. They've posted roughly 2,200 photographs without any attempt at sorting them. Other photography services provide sorting based on the number on the bike (why else did we have them?). I want some photographs, but I don't see how I can go through 2,200 photos. I'm a customer, not someone being paid for taking the photos.
