I enjoyed it - it was all as advertised, and (for me) went without a hitch. The feed stations, and food and drink were perfectly adequate. The only minor complaint I have is with the website, where I had trouble finding the maps and the GPS download (I got there in the end). The riders briefing should have been checked before posting - it even had the wrong date for the event!

The first time in doing this event and definitely the last! Staff couldn't have been less friendly and uninterested if they had tried. Entered online and they couldn't find my race number, then seemed annoyed with me! The route was bland and uninteresting and didn't even go anywhere near Jodrell Bank!?! The only freebie was a water bottle - no high 5 packs etc which is pathetic considering it cost £25 (£30 on the day) The feed station wasn't sign posted and I had to turn back once I'd gone past the lay-by, the marshals there never even spoke and were borderline rude. Post ride food was a tinned hotdog which was rank. The Gold standard time was listed as 5hrs 15mins which is a joke..surely it's meant to be 3hrs 15mins? This is by far the worst sportive I have done all year and feel I have been ripped off. There is so much competition that there is no reason to do this event again....The Evans Cycles events are the best in my opinion and only £17.50, or the Polocini cafe ones at £15. Don't bother with this event!!
