Excellent sportive in beautiful countryside accompanied by beautiful sunshine once the early morning chill had gone. Well organised, signage good, food good, all the staff I encountered were very friendly.

Good event. Only my second sportive, enjoyed it. Prefer timing chip activating and stopping when you pass over the line rather than manual activation and stop. Shame some photos did not become available .... ie mine!

Feed Stops: Could do with two evenly spaced on the medium course.
Timing: OK, but would prefer to clock in and out of feed stations to get overall travelling time rather than time including feed stations.
Support: Didnt need or dee any out on the road.
Website: Only updated in the last few days before the event with this years routes and distances.

I have done many 10k run events but this was my first cycle sportive and I do not think I could have picked a better one.
It was well organised and everyone involved in the smooth running of it came across friendly and pleased to help, the course was well thought out and kept us away from traffic, had some challenging parts but not enough that you thought it was a stage of the Tour. I plan to do more Sportive events but this one will be at the top of my list for next time and I will spread the word. Even the weather was perfect conditions but that probably did'nt have anything to do with anyone but a very good day.

Very well planned for my purposes. Scenery on top of The Wolds was fantastic and even got chance to spot a Zebra (I kid you not). Appreciate the great work from Ian and his team

It was my first time of taking part in one of these events. I would like to say the whole event was extremely well organised, with extremely friendly and helpful event organisers/helpers. I did have a bit of an issue at the check-in. I was given the incorrect number and wasn't informed about going to the next table to get my timing chip and complete the check in procedure where the mistake would have been picked up on. I can only assume that the assistant assumed that everyone taking part had done so before and was therefore used to the procedure. Apart from that I enjoyed the overall experience and look forward to hopefully taking part in many more.

Good route with some grippy little climbs in the Wolds and not as fast as you might think rural Lincolnshire to be. Some great views in the beautiful sunshine.

I have only rated Support (Sag Wagon, Outriders) 5/10 as I didn't notice or use them. If there was a n/a I would have ticked that. My rating therefore should be 100%. My first event and very impressed with all the organisation from registering to finish and beyond. Will be back for more events. Well done to everyone involved behind the scenes.
