Despite the weather I really enjoyed it, and am looking forward to entering next years event, especially if there is a 100 mile route available!
If I may make a couple suggestions:
Would be great to have the distance and date printed on the t-shirts (really like the design for this year, and the womens fit ones are a big plus too - means i can wear it other than just as sleepwear!)
Designate a spectator spot / cheering zones!
Great ride, many thanks!

I can't really comment on the event as I only completed 19 miles of it, due to an accident.

Hi overall a great experience for me, it was my first sportive. I couldn't score out of ten the support/ out riders as we didne't see/ require them.

Would be better to have more than one portaloo in the car park.

I scored the route 8/10 as the only bit we found dull as it's an awful road anyway is the cullumpton-clyst. There are some much prettier and quieter roads which run along side the one we went on. It was busy and the surface was not good. But better than going up dunkeswell which we do weekly... If it is the same course next year I will be there again. But would be nice to be on a quieter road.

Thanks Stewart you and your team did really well. Thank you

A very well organised event, but this is to be expected from Just Events and their experience of organising some of the best sportives in the country.
A great well signed route, good facilities at the start/finish and loved the timing system where you could punch in your rider number and it would give you a print out of your time.
The medal was also excellent, not just your standard circular thing with a bit of text on it.
Maybe for the 2nd year there could be a few stands etc and make the finish a little more welcoming (although the mascot was vaguely amusing, I didn't really see the relevance).
All in all, a brilliant event and will definitely be back next year !
