I ride several events in the sportive season and this event is probably my favourite. The route is the main feature of any sportive and and this particular event is a wonderful ride. Organisation is very good indeed. A bit more variety and feed stops would improve what is already a very good event. Nice T-shirt at the end and in various sizes to chose from, much better than a pointless medal i think.
Ideal event for anyone looking to do their first 100 miler.

Friendly people, great signing, good route equals fantastic days cycling. Faultless apart from no toilets at feed stations and a lack of hiding spots!

Lovely scenic course, blessed by unexpectedly good weather. Nice climbs, nice downs, nice people - what more do you want? (other than toilets at the feedstops that is) :)

Another great day from Southern sportive. having done the Joker earlier wanted to do another one from this organiser and was not let down. Route really scenic though I would say not too demanding with killer hills. there are 3 main hills on the 100 mile route but they were energy sapping ones. Plenty of other undulating ones that sapped the energy too. Only gripe was I felt safer on the main A4 that the road through Amesbury.
Great day in the sun during our current winter (!) forgot the sun cream. Well done Martin and the team, now thinking can I get the set of southern sportive T-shirts! Also I can now put a face to the ex cycling mayor Jennifer Trotman cyclosport correspondent!
