Really well organised; P&O, Port of Dover Police, even the UKBA were happy and smiling and knew all about the event. Maybe worth not having the initial registration and handing out of goody bags to people as they came into the car park; it did cause a rather large tail back through Dover at 5.30am, but overall a very good and enjoyable day out.

A fantastic event and the organisation was brilliant, especially when you consider the involvement needed of the Port Authorites (both sides of the Channel) and the Ferry company. One of the best Sportives I've ridden.

Brilliant day out, we only had a problem getting into the car park which left us short on prep time. Toilets would have been a bonus but didn't present a major problem. Very well organised as usual. Thanks

The staff and organization were top notch as usual, but I wouldn't ride this one again simply for the fact that we spent far too long hanging around waiting for ferries. I know that this is part of the deal with this type of ride, but I'm the sort of guy who likes to turn up, get out on the road quickly, then once finished packup and leave. I tried the ride this time as an experiment, and whilst it was fun the waiting did kinda lower my enjoyment of the day (plus I blew three spokes and had to abandon at 50miles in).
Please guys, can you do some events further up north? I really like the way you do your rides but they are all on the south coast, how about some in the midlands or south yorkshire for a change?

A superb ride through some stunning scenery in northern France, granted it was a touch on the warm side. But there's nothing that can be done about that.

Great orginisation, excellent goody bag and great staff.

Loved the ride, and think you should hold more of the rides in france, maybe a french series ... For the money what more could you ask for! Food, support, mechanic at the end of a phone and friendly staff!

This was my first sportive so I have nothing to compare it to, but I can hardly fault it. Organisation and marshalls were superb and the course was beautiful and challenging. Had to wait ages for a return ferry, but appreciate that can be unavoidable. Brilliant day and I will definitely be signing up for some more

An absolutely fantastic day. Thank you for all the organisation & planning behind the event. Really first class. That was my first 'wiggle sportive', ill be booking my next one asap (White Peak). Going accross to France & riding their roads certainly made the event special. It was an event ill remember for a long time & if there's another, or similar, ill be there. Thanks again for a great day.

Rating of 2/2.5 out of 5 possibly not justified. More like a 3/3.5.

Brilliantly organised by Martin and team. Friendly, efficient and great touches like cofee and croissant on the boat, jam sandwiches etc

I liked the event but I'll say that it's unlikely I'll do it again as the time taken overall versus ride time wasn't great. That's ferries for you I know and I can check that off as done. You did a fab job of it, don't get me wrong, but 16 hours for 4 odd hours riding was a tad too much.
Thanks very much for a fabulously run event guys.
