Great event well organised, fairly easy 100km ride.

Positives: Plenty of car parking, registration and start well organised. Scenic route. Numbered climb signs. Map. Emergency number on race card. Friendly staff.

Negatives: Still yet to see the results (not sure why it takes so long to type some numbers into a computer?) A few sections had quite long gaps between signs. Caution signs could do with some text to say what to look out for e.g "pot holes" "junction ahead". Didn't see any support cars on route but we were near the front. Just a burger van at the end is a bit of an anti climax.

This a great, local event. Well organized, with friendly and supportive staff. Run in a nice part of the country, the course is challenging without being over the top. No Primos on this one, just honest, friendly cyclists. Only one feed stop, which is fine for 100k, and stocked with loads of proper, straightforward food. Can't fault it, a great ride. Well done and thanks to the organizer and helpers.

Excellent course and very well organised. Didn't see follow up support so if any problems on the route it might have been a long wait. I would and have recommended this event to friends and will definitely do again next year. Please keep the steep climbs in.

Excellent signage and a friendly event. One toilet at the start/finish line was poor. Would definitely recommend it to fellow cyclists and will do it again. The web site wasn't the easiest to use, but it did have everything I needed.

A very well organised and friendly event. A somewhat more challenging course than I'd expected, but that's pretty much down to me. I'll be back next year better prepared.

An excellent event - the fine weather (compared to last year) made it even more enjoyable. Well organised with plenty of food (home made quiche was excellent). Only suggestion is distance markers at ever 10 (or 20) km.
