Slick organisation to get 1500 riders off and on their way, 2nd year for me.

A good year opener and for a good cause. I'll be back next year.

An excellent event, organisation was perfect, no issues with anything. The weather wasn't great, but I can't blame UKCE for that. :-)

The usual high standard from UK cycling Events and must be the best value sportive of the year. Also not too hilly for an old one.

Love these bike events put on by UK Cycling Events (especially mtb out in the sticks) - its all done for you and you really do just have to get out and ride!

Excellent organisation as I have come to expect from these events, toilets filthy and not pleasant at all, and signage at first feed stop a little misleading. On the plus side, excellent route with a couple of unexpected steep bits thrown in resulted in a fantastic ride. Great season opener, would definately reccomend

I thoroughly enjoyed the ride, I do very little road cycling so 80miles on road tends to get a little boring, but was happy until the very later stages of the race (which may be down to cycling grafham and area as a kid so it was all familiar) Signage was fantastic, only a fool could get lost, and I was amazed that so much gradient could be found in East Anglia. All in all a great and well run event and would look forward to doing it again.

A very well organised event, lovely route that was well signposted. Most definitely the best sportive we have taken part in. Lovely cakes at the end of the ride and a goody bag as well.

Overall a very well organised event. Could have been improved by better signage at the first feed stop - it was not clear that you took a left if you wanted to stop, straight on if not!

Wiggle and UK Cycling Events consistently offer top organization, signage, refreshments, and routes. For a season opener this was perfect.

A good first ride of the season. Could have been a little more challenging if I am honest. Signage great (as always) save for the fact that the first turn out of the start wasn't signed - half the entrants turned left not right! Should have listened to instructions. Toilet was filthy and had run out of loo roll!
