This was my first time riding this event and I can't wait to do it again next year. I completed the Tame route, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The right amout of challenges and not forgetting the fantastic scenery. My only feedback was that I would have liked to have seen more arrows. I was meant to riding this with my husband, however he was injured so I did the route on my own. There were long stretches where I didn't see a soul or an arrow which made me question ... 'did I miss one? Am I on the right track' ! So I guess more of a comfort thing for me !!. Overall, an excellent event, the organisation, the helpers, the parking and facilities - everything spot on. Well done Peterborough Cycling club.

Hats off to the organisers... Great ride around a brilliant route. Beautiful scenery, plenty of climbs and never a dull moment. Food stops were the best I have ever experienced and everyone was super-friendly. Will definitely be back next year!
Thanks to everyone involved in putting on the event.

Great event. Only problem was trying to download the rouote maps to my Garmin. I think they may have been last years? A couple of times I followed the marked signs and went "off course" on the Garmin. The marked signposts were very clear throughout though. Lovely roads and definitely recommend it.

Yet another great Peterborough CC Sportive. Excellent value for money being as good an experience as others costing over twice as much. Many thanks to Ian Wild and all the helpers.

A really great event - beautiful route, lovely weather (well, a bit overcast for much of the ride but that was no bad thing given how warm it was...), really well organised and a lovely atmosphere. And excellent feed stations. If the cake and tea hadn't been so inviting I might have got a better time!

Well organised, great route - only downside was little complicated finding "Tame" route after feed station in Cottingham. Minor blip though, overall it was excellent - top marks!!

Rode this for first time today. Day got off to a bad start when my sat nav took me a completely different village 5 miles down the road...very odd. Which meant I started a good 30 mins later than I wanted, at the back of the group. Course was good overall, littered with pretty villages and more lumpy than I was expecting!, but some of the roads were in poor condition. Very discreet feed station at 32 miles....but well stocked. Good parking at the HQ, and would certainly do again as its good value.

Great event, very well organised, over a scenic and challenging course. Not too hard, not too easy. Bit unfair having a 14% climb straight after the cake :)

1st year for me, looking forward to next year already!

Not 10/10 as we can all improve a little.

The ride was very good and I enjoyed it. I only nearly missed one arrow. The roads were nice and quiet, but some were in need of resurfacing.
