Very well run event ,first 2 feed stations a bit close together ,loads of riders rode the wrong way down a one way street to get back to hq ,much to the annoyance of locals i have had to defend the event to two shop owners and residents in the last few days Arrows to finish a good idea

Was a bit weary of not overdoing it but at the end wished I'd done the longer route. Classic finish up the cobbled hill

1st feed stop - only 1 toilet, therefore potential long queue
2nd feed stop too far round route, needed to be 10-15 miles earlier
Why no signs from finish to race HQ, and why not allow riders to hand in timing system at finish so they can avoid unnecessary trip back to HQ.
Route was excellent and overall an excellent event.

Found it tough but enjoyed the ride, the weather helped. I was annnoyed with cyclist not having any respect with discarding their litter.

A very enjoyable ride. Excellent choice of finish in the centre of Lincoln. Really good atmosphere. The only criticism I could make was about the last tea stop on the 83 mile route which was in the process of packing up when i arrived.

This was the first sportive I`ve done and I was pleased with the organisation of the event. Website and entry was very easy, all the required info was E-mailed before the event.Signing on was well organised and swift, signage was good, the feed stations were well maned with plenty of choice,but not very evenly spaced and the tetford stops toilet facilities were to small to cope with the number of riders. The route was excellent and tough, especially through the Wolds. I would recomend this to all just make sure you are ready for the climbs especially Nettleton Top

An excellent sportive which is not over demanding. Last year did the 55 mile, this year did the 83 mile, next year it will be the 100 mile!

A very good sportive that was well sign posted. The only downside I found was the fact that there wasn't any hot drinks at the feed station.
