This was the most organised and friendly event I have participated in. Two weeks ago I took part in another event which quite frankly was appalling.
It was a lovely idea to provide a much appreciated hot meal at the end.
Thank you everyone who stayed and waited for us slow coaches to finish
I would definitely recommend i cycle events.
Thank you very much

When we arrived at the first feed station at about 10.30 there was no food and no one to help. The only stop where we received a welcome was the last one. We appreciated the warm welcome back at the finish. Otherwise a great day.

Really enjoyed the ride, good base training event as not really hilly aside from one at the very end.

Good route and sufficiently challenging for the average cyclist - but the last climb was a bit too tough for many after all the miles and 6 hours in the saddle. Signage was generally good but could be a bit brighter (the brown backgrounds didn't stand out very well) Very friendly sportive and a good one to start the season

Very good overall
You can't help the weather and in fact it was better than I thought it would be
Food excellent at end and throughout the ride
Sign on could be improved as a bit disorganised.

This was my first ever cycle event and as I lived localy on the Marsh was the ideal event. I chose the mini route and was a little doubted by the distance as I had never ridden over 23 miles previously. It turned out to a lot better than I expected and the distance was idel. I may even go for the midi next time!
The weather was not great but it did not spoil the day. The event was professionally organised and riders friendly. Feed stations were good and just what was needed at the right time. Only downside was my name was not on the list when I registered, but was soon sorted out. Thank you for a great day.

Shame about the weather at the start, but a good event, well signed and organised and a nice curry at the end. That last mile up the hill was a killer!

I did the Mini. Enjoyed it apart from the weather, which was "English", so predictable really. Signage good. An A4 laminated route sheet could be useful.

Very good, my first sportive. Only marked down on signage as felt needed more through Hythe to be sure where going and along some of the country lanes to confirm I was on the right road still. Only down side of the course was having to go through Hythe.

Very good event. Unfortunately it does use the same roads used in other sportives (Pilgrims Hospice, Wiggle, Sandwich, Lord Whiskey etc) so not much of the route was new.
Food was great, especially the first stop on the mini.
