This was my first experiance of entering an organised event and can not praise the organiers highly enough. As previously stated from check-in through to finishing everything was well organised, great venue (toilets, food, hot/cold drinks available), well sign posted, excellant food station, great communications before and after the event. I will certainly look to take part in more of these events (I work shifts, so when possible).
The other participants on the day that I spoke to were very friendly and where enjoying the day.
Many thanks to Ian and the organisers.

Well organised from the check in right through to finish. Great venue for the start, with excellent bike shop to browse round when finished. Challenging route, with appropriately spaced and well stocked feed stations and great training for Lincoln. They even organised good weather too!

This was the third time I have taken part in this event, and this was the best by far. The event HQ had a great atmosphere and the changes to the route made a huge difference, upgrading it from very good to fantastic. The weather helped but I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the day from the moment I arrived. This has to rate as the best sportive I have ridden so far. Might have to step up to the long route next year just to improve the enjoyment levels even more.

Have ridden this four times was the best...the weather helped..but the change in route really did make it a great ride...the front loading of Brooke and Ridlington rather than them being at the end made it more enjoyable...the marshals were great, quality of food at Owston was terrific and the friendliness of the riders was a credit too...nice one Ian..will be back next year too...

This was a thoroughly well organised event. Good pre-ride information, well chosen route (challenging but not impossible), exceptionally friendly and helpful mashalling throughout, route arrows all present and correct, excellent food. Will certainly ride it again next year.
