Really well organised local event. Communication with the event organisers was fast and informative. Great value for money and we will definately do this one again. The feedback is having just two drinks/food stops on a challenging and hot day meant quite a few people had run out of water. It would be good to try and find a 3 station, even if it only had water barrels to top up on fluids.

Very challenging course with plenty of climbing!!!!
One improvement would be where the route overlaps and begins it's return to the start. Signs leading back to the start could have a chequered flag sticker on them to avoid any confusion. All us ok until you miss an arrow and get back on course only to find you're doing the main loop again.
Otherwise very good ride

Only thing I would suggest to improve would be to have a Marshall on the very fast downhill stretch which then ended vey quickly at a junction. Going from over 30mph down to a abrupt stop was quite unnerving, especially if you where amongst a big group.

A great event overall, but there were (a) discrepancies between the route as downloaded from the web site and as signed and (b) signs missing or wrong in quite a few places.

Well organised event friendly and helpful marshals
Only one negative we were a slow group who left after most other riders had departed, so the return feed station was visited late on, unfortunately there was not much left (understandable) but irritating none the less.
A tough but enjoyable day thanks to the efforts of many people my negative comment should be taken in context and mentioned for future reference rather than acomplaint!

This was my first time riding this event and I can't wait to do it again next year. I completed the Tame route, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The right amout of challenges and not forgetting the fantastic scenery. My only feedback was that I would have liked to have seen more arrows. I was meant to riding this with my husband, however he was injured so I did the route on my own. There were long stretches where I didn't see a soul or an arrow which made me question ... 'did I miss one? Am I on the right track' ! So I guess more of a comfort thing for me !!. Overall, an excellent event, the organisation, the helpers, the parking and facilities - everything spot on. Well done Peterborough Cycling club.

Hats off to the organisers... Great ride around a brilliant route. Beautiful scenery, plenty of climbs and never a dull moment. Food stops were the best I have ever experienced and everyone was super-friendly. Will definitely be back next year!

Great event. Only problem was trying to download the rouote maps to my Garmin. I think they may have been last years? A couple of times I followed the marked signs and went "off course" on the Garmin. The marked signposts were very clear throughout though. Lovely roads and definitely recommend it.
