Friendly and well organised sportive. Well signed and well marshalled. Not a bad route with some challenging climbs but would have preferred quieter country roads rather than the busy and exposed A roads which attract a lot of fast traffic.

A very well organised event. Great facilities, interesting and enjoyable route and a very friendly cycling club. Complimentary hog roast at the end was a nice touch!

Organisers were friendly and very welcoming. Two great route lengths to choose from. Great value for money, I couldn't recommend the ride highly enough! The climbs were challenging but well worth the effort and the hog roast at the end was just what the doctor ordered. The photo's were included which just adds the little extra. I'm up for it again next year! The weather didn't put me off or put a damper on the ride.

Easily the best sportive I have ever ridden. Head and shoulders above commercial events I have entered. Doing this again. For sure. With knobs on. I've even half-inched the shorter route to use as a training ride. Great value too, proving that you can do electronic timing and a professional event without charging people 40 quid for a goody bag full of rubbish.

Great sportive. The best organised and most friendly I have ridden. Would definatelty ride it again next year. Could possibly do with making it a little longer (say 100 miles). 200 hundred riders was ideal so would suggest keeping with this number.

A well organised event, made to feel welcome from the moment I arrived to leaving for home after a brilliant days riding. The feed stops and Marshalls around the course we're well placed and again friendly. For a 1st event the level of organisation was unbelievable, I can't wait for next year's event. This is definitely a must ride Sportive

Great sportive- excellent organisation and very well signposted. Tough route through the High Peak with some iconic climbs- last 20 miles in very harsh weather conditions tempered by the hog roast at the finish! Recommended.

I enjoyed seeing some new routes, which I can now ride again.
The smaller scale made it feel safer than other sportives I have ridden and certainly kept it friendly.

Count me in for next year!

Very well organised event, with professional, (very) helpful & friendly staffing in all aspects. ( Food stops, marshaling etc). Although i am a local resident of High Peak, all the same, the route took in some roads & geography that I'd not previously seen & was all the better for it.

Will definitely be looking to enter the 2014 event.
