Excellent roads, very little traffic, marked ok. Pity weather was a bit cold and windy on the Saturday, although made most of weekend and went for ride on Sunday as well.

I really don't like to be too critical of any sportive I ride but given the sponsors and the management behind this event they really could do better and this was perhaps mirrored by the poor turnout. By my calculation there were 174 names on the start sheet for the long ride which is not that great. This ride has the potential to be really good. I last did this ride in 2008 and was somewhat disappointed then as well so probably will not return. There was no electronic timing. The signage although plentiful was quite small and I managed to add another 5 miles to my route (Although it was really my fault trying to break 5 hours and rushing to get to finish). The route itself was not particularly difficult. In fact, the hardest part was the last third but only because it was into a headwind. The route could have been spiced up by adding in the Talla climb and perhaps a few others in the area.
