nice ride, good hot showers at the end, a nice distance and hot food afterwards. a friendly field and staff. nice coffees on offer too.

everything you want and nothing you don't except maybe a few savoury items at the feeed station. would be my only critique.

would do this ride again though

I do think hot tea or coffee should have been complimentary at the finish, especially considering the time of year. Also I wasn't impressed by the food offered. If I remember correctly hot drinks were available during and after the ride in last years Cumbrian Cracker (no charge) which also had brilliant food choices at the feed station and at the finish.

Lovely, although very hilly, ride. The marshals and organisers were brilliantly friendly. We were back of the pack but still enjoyed it immensely.

Great ride, very up and down and both were very steep in places. Brilliant signage and very helpful marshals.

The only comment I would make to an otherwise excellent
Event would be to have some tap water available with the hot food at the end of the ride - thank you

My first sportive and I found the whole experience fantastic! The conditions were a little on the glum side and this made the later stages pretty brutal!! I'll definatley be back next year. Thanks for a great event in amazing surroundings!
