Really nice ride - no queues , great timing chip system, helpful briefing, much better route than last year, did not stop at the feed stations so cannot comment on those. It was very well signed which was good. Thanks.

With the free Cycle Jersey and stunning scenery this was a great event. The feed stops may have been better and the organisers could do with a more user friendly website but the good points far outweigh the 'room for improvement' items.
I personally would have liked some more challenging climbs, but you can only work with what the local terrain offers. That's not to say that there weren't hills, but no really tough ones IMO.

Very poorly organised. There was no food or carbo/electrolyte drinks at the Feed Stations...just water and biscuits. We were told that the group before us had taken it all. Good organisation would have made sure that the group before us had enough and there was still some left over for us to enjoy too.

There was an individual who had 3 punctures and was walking to the Feed station..about 4 miles or so..we told staff at the Feed Station but they didnt appear to do anything to help him

Loved it. Fantastic ride over a nice route in pretty countryside. Would just benefit from better feedstops.

Good Event I rode the 100k, More toilets at the start would be my only gripe. But well run well signposted and great marshalls

Registration was a bit chaotic - no information on which desk to go to, for the prebooked and on-the-day riders. A fairly large queue soon built up.
One toilet in a porta cabin doesn't really pass muster for an event of this size - there were 3 urinals, but morning constitions and all that ....
Feed station at Cranfield was superb - great quality, quantity and choice of food.
A little bit disappointed that the 100km (62.5 miles) ride was actually only 56 miles, according to my Garmin.

Interesting route with no real killer climbs to tackle meant I made it back after 100 miles in one piece and still felt human. The only problem with the event was the lack of feed stations. The first was sign posted but nothing or no-one there, and the second did not exist which made it a little difficult to manage feeding and hydration over 100 miles. Apart from that a great ride.

A great day out. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The second feed stop at Silverstone could have been better signed as I missed it completely. Having said that, along with one other rider, I missed the right turn just after Winslow and didn't notice until we saw a sign that said "Wecome to Buckingham"!! This added a rather amusing extra 15 miles to our route as we fumbled our way through the map to get back on track, adding an extra hour to our times.
Thanks for not locking the carpark.
Brilliant, see you next year.

Not enough Toilets at the start, Chaotic and very slow sign on, No signs at second feed station which was there, appparently. No free drink at finish, not even water! Marshalls at the end didn't want to know!

First sportive I've done, great route, free sarnies and tea at the feed station, friendly riders, really enjoyed it. Only downside was registration was a bit of a jumble.
