Great event, over a super route. Only minor comment was the signing in process could have been a bit slicker. The alphabetical split wasn't in the best proportion to the entrants names, so one table empty whilst a long queue at the other. Many thanks to the volunteers who were great.

would have preferred better fuel at the stops that donuts and yum yums. Also, would have preferred ribena to water.

Must be an easier way to register in the morning to avoid large queues, although cant think what that would be ? We missed our planned starting time.
Only other issue was at each feed stop trying to get any water took ages as the taps on dispensors didn't seem to work, or only let a trickle through.

Otherwise it was a great day !

This was my first sportive event, and I'm certain I'll be back for more. The car park was well organised by the marshals there though it'd have been nice to be closer to the start. The course was excellent; very quiet roads and scenery that'd be worth taking a more leisurely ride through.
The event sign on was well run and I experienced no issues with getting my number and timing strip. However, I think that many riders arrived later at registration and had difficulty in getting everything organised for their preferred start time. It might we worth considering either advising riders to register earlier; or to offer an option (even if it's at extra cost) to get a timing strip and race number by post?

Very well organised and a good event but 2 points to note:
1) Only used the mid station on the 100 miler but was surprised they only had water rather than enerygy drink so lost a few points here
2) Took along time to get signed in. There was no queue for the N-Z but always a long queue for A-M, so a better split required as there were 109 potentials for the A-M and 57 for the N-Z.

A superb event, my second year! Returned after the rain and fog of 2013, as I wanted to appreciate the views, enjoy the experience and considerably improve my time

A good event well organised. The last feeding station was easy to miss (I never saw it) and neither did my friends.

Great event...Only formative feedback would be that the sign on could have been better as most people seemed to be in the 100 miles queue with low alphabet surnames.
Also I was surprised to see people with Tri bars/TT bikes. This is not normally permitted in a road event where bunch riding is standard.
