I did the short route. Well organised and signed. I did have one comment and one problem though. The short route is advertised as >1000metres of climbing, which I took into account when deciding not to do the medium route. After uploading to Strava and correcting elevation, the gain was just 715metres so they are way out with some of the elevation gain figures quoted. The other problem was with the Kalcott hill loop, they didn't expect anyone on the short route to do this, so were no setup for timing etc for short course riders when I got there (and I'd punctured on the way so was not there early) - the marshall told me they didn't expect short route riders to do the extra 9km loop and this was more for medium/long route riders who got there later. But this wasn't as advertised so a little disappointing. Other than that, a lovely ride in good scenery.

Did long route with an easy first 30 miles and then 35 miles of various challenging climbs to top of Cotswolds and then thankfully a flatish roll home to do just over 80 miles. Some of these hills deceptively steep where traction was an issue at times on the greasy back lanes (would love to do this route in summer). Signage excellent, motorcycle outrider always seemed to be going near me. Feedstops just at right point but would be nice to have the hot chilli at end included in the price.

Great event and really enjoyed. I particually liked the additional option to ride a tough section. All staff friendly and easy to park with no delays geting underway. Weather was miserable however all riders were smiling! Only small concern was that some of the signs were not visable until you were along side them....perhaps a bit more warning at one or two next time. Definately riding this one next year. Cheers.
