Superbly organised event. Recommending it to anyone who will listen. First time for me, not my last! A couple of signs missing or obscured but aside from that excellent.

Superb - almost impossible to improve from start to after the finish (sausage sandwich included in the entry!). Will be back next year.

A fantastic event, brilliantly organised. I did it last year on a cold and windy day, and this year on a roasting hot day. On both occasions the organisers made suitable adaptations, for example this year providing sunscreen. The face book page set up for the event generated a real cycling community, so for example riders could post questions and either organisers or other riders would help answer.

Outstanding organisation of outstanding ride. After last year I signed up for this as soon as it opened and if it were open I would already have signed up for the next one.

Excellent course only let down by the last feed station being slightly too far from the last one. 10 miles to far IMO.

The best Sportive I have done. A good hard route with proper food - not gels - real food! Struggling to find a crtiicsim but big queue for food at teh end meant I didn't bother but that is as much I could find wrong even looking!

A great and very tough event. Signage required for sharp bends. Timing system a bit awkward. Also 2nd feed stop not good area for bikes otherwise I will be back!
