A really well organised and friendly event, with a high level of attendance by competent roadies setting a good standard. Great to see a new part of the country (Cannock Chase) on such a beautiful sunny day. Well chosen roads (good tarmac mostly!) with an excellent start/finish venue and some brilliant fast sections, highlighted by good technology and support. Well done KilotoGo!

A superb day,glorious route and that climb out of Ironbridge was something else,It was a lot harder than Mowcop or maybe it was due to tired legs.The organisers did a good job with the route and back up,Will most likely do it again next year if its run.

This is an email I sent Simon Thomson....
Hi Simon,

Congratulations on a well run Motion in Mercia, I enjoyed the day and performed better than I expected as I was with a bit of a head cold.

I responded to your survey and below have as I did for the Wild Edric put together a few tweak suggestions in addition to your survey regards the long route.

I list below some thought points that led to my revised route.

1. Minimise time going out of Wolverhampton and minimise pot holes in large groups and traffic lights.

2. Right turns on very busy high speed main road (A5) going straight over at Four Crosses would minimize the time exposed to danger and is a better junction checked on (streetview)

3. Miss out going through main high streets in the towns, Newport and Bridgnorth.

4. Extend the distance to 100miles but with an easier climb out of the Ironbridge Gorge.

5. See more of the Ironbridge Gorge and Coalport and on to the lovely lanes through Ryton, Beckbury , Badger and on to Worfield , then the standout Village of Claverley.

6. Join the A 454 towards finish via Tinacre Hill as there was two dodgy junctions, one at Perton Rd/MountRd and especially a high speed stop which some very tired minds(end of ride don't want to stop) may have trouble with at junction with the Holloway and A454 near roundabout (busy on return).

Route with start as was....

Revised way out from start....

Take Care

This was my first sportive.I found it to be very well organised with easy to follow instructions. Very little queuing, even though everyone want to start as soon as the race was open! I thought it was really good :)
