I chose to follow the guidance of the organisers to stop at one of the feedstations to use the loo instead of 'just going' beside the road. Unfortunately the foodstop only had a pathetic 5 portaloo's for literally hundreds of people to use. This meant a significant amount of time was lost standing in a queue. If the organisers are serious about responding to an issues which I'm sure concerns local residents, the least they could do is provide adequate provision of loo's at the various stops. As it was people were getting annoyed and then going to 'go' beside outbuildings, vehicles etc. which could have led to issues with those living/working nearby.

Apart from that the event was great. The only other grumble was the starting procedure - why give people 'wave times' if it's impossible to get into your 'wave'.

Marshalls were great, everyone was really friendy, the course was magnificant and even the weather was (mostly) fine.

Very good, but with that many people I think some should realise it is not a race. The crosswinds caused havoc in some places. - will do research at | |

My first sportive, never mind etape Caledonia so I can't compare but the amount of support vehicles impressed me as did the overall planning. The weather wasn't great but the locals turned out, even in their pjs to support :-) used one feedstation, was well stocked and manned by friendly people, even tho it was winter weather. Start was chaotic, but to be expected with so many people. Plan on doing it next year

An amazing event on closed roads. Could not rate the feed stops properly as I didn't use them, but others said they were good. It's a beautiful course and even better with over 4,000 cyclists taking part and the locals coming out to cheer us all on & offer oranges and sweeties!! It's good to see so many cyclists of different types & bikes out as well.
