Loved it - really frustrated that I didn't have the energy to complete the Whole Hog without a lift over Holme Moss, but the perfect timing of the 'sag wagon' and the lovely people who greeted me inside it were much appreciated!
I will certainly inflict this on myself and others again!!
Thanks for a great day!

Really excellent route and extremely good organisation. I have nothing but praise and gratitude for the whole event - I can't really see how it could be made better. Atrocious weather made it painful!

Very good, my first sportive and not the last...really good fun. Thank you!
You probably don't need to order that amount of hog roast as quite a lot seemed to be left over at the end and probably wasted.

A fantastic and awesome sportive. I've done quite a few but this is one of only 2 that I plan to complete every year, year in year out without fail. Fantastic Peak District countryside, great climbs, very friendly staff, good atmosphere amongst riders, very good value. All in all just fantastic! The timing chip and the sheer challenge of the course are an addictive mix. I was having a great ride until 70 miles and was set to be well within the top 10 times until Holme Moss (the last big climb!) killed my already jelly legs and I dropped out of the top 10. Gutted and so angry with myself! As such I've already got next year's strategy planned and can't wait to try again. I'll be aiming to make amends and for a very high top 10 finish. All my training is going to be in preparation for this very addictive sportive.
A simply awesome sportive and so well run and organised. If I lived nearer to Glossop I'd join Kinder Velo in a heartbeat.
Top job to all those involved in the organising and running. Keep doing what you're doing!

A superbly organised and run event with professional, yet very friendly support staff across the event. The course was my most challenging ride so far, but so brilliant with tough hills, steep descents and all through fantastic secenery.
