The route up to Box Hill feedstop was very nice, after it back to London was a mess, its nice to finish with a lap at the velodrome, but the traffic was horrible. It was too flat and too slow. Any possibility of an alternative route? Also 1st feedstation on medium route had no fruit at all, waiting 15mins for a 1min choc bar, sweets, other snacks and water refuel is a bit long, a second tent would be nice to have. On the plus side all welcomed the volunteers/organizers walking up and down with snacks to grab. I would move the water/drink refuel a bit further away from the food tent and get something to park the bikes or just one of the wooden tables to lean the bikes against so we don't get into each others way, that would help speed up the turnaround.

Generally I loved this ride and it was setup and run perfectly. I felt the Village could have been a little bit more exciting especially seeing as I was well ahead of other riders and there wasn't much of the carnival atmosphere i was expecting.

Good sportive marred by final 25k of traffic jamming. Also, some of the roads were in very poor condition, particularly Weare St, near Ockley
