Both the Rutland and Lincoln sportives were well designed, ran and organised and enjoyed them both very much. My only slight criticism is that on other sportives I have done the timing microchip logs you in and out of food stops so that the time shown is not affected by how long you stop for.
The timing was accurate and easy to use overall but that is my only and very minor criticism.

very well organised and nice route. Only bad thing was the road not closed to traffic on final cobbled climb.

Brilliant day out. Being local i had the joy of seeing my county from different places and got views i'd never seen before. A testing ride but not so much as to make it difficult.

Excellent course, first class organisation, and the iconic climb up Michaelgate provides something that no other sportive can offer.

Very nice route, after having got past the first couple of miles of unattractive town centre busy streets. Well organised, quick & easy to register / book in, good signage on the route.

Very good event. Disappointed at the amount of litter being dropped by other riders - perhaps the organiser should remind all participants that throwing empty gel sachets onto the road/verge gets all cyclists a bad rep.

Overall it was a very well organised event and a pleasure to be part off. The only thing was that the long route that I downloaded to my Garmin didn't match the signage on a couple of sections. I followed the signs and it met back up with the Garmin route after a few miles.
