Very good event, well organised, friendly people. Even with the bad weather and my poor preparation I enjoyed the ride and am looking forward to next year.
If I train hard I might get back in time to have a hot shower!
Thank you, well done.

It is a very well run friendly event, Tough event though, especially given the wet, windy weather on Sunday. I will definitely ride it again. Especially like the feed stations and the sandwiches and flapjack on offer. The Hog rating signs at beginning of each climb are an amusing touch. Very well signed.
Don't underestimate the Whole Hog. It is a challenging event.

First time riding the Hog. Considering the horrendous conditions this was the best-organised event I have ridden, congratulations to Paul and the rest of the team.

The weather was pretty bad, but that always makes things much memorable. This is a really excellent event, can't recommend it enough - but please don't make it any bigger! One criticism, only one toilet for female participants at the venue and the lock on the door was broken (bit embarrasing as it opened onto the main reception area).

A great ride, lovely scenery, challenging climbs. Very well organised, feed stations were excellent, good variety of food and marshals both there, at the start finish and around the course were very friendly and supportive, despite the atrocious weather. Excellently signposted with no risk of getting lost and all danger areas highlighted well. Overall a ride I would recomend to anyone, well done Glossop Kinder Velo !!

Fantastic Event. A Challenging course over some spectacular climbs and great views if only the weather have permitted me to enjoy them. Full Marks Glossop Kinder Velo on a well organised event I hope to be back next year if not least to enjoy that welcome at the finish and to get my hands on some of that Roast Hog. Keep up the good work.

Really enjoyed it - just one loose section on the way to Holme - can't help it when the council decide to resurface the road!
