Superb route with good signage, helpful marshals especially with warnings of dangerous descents and junctions.

Brilliant fast route with fantastic scenery and a few challenging hills thrown in to provide a challenge, especially the KOM at the end. Sign-up and registration was good, everyone including other riders were friendly. There was a good variety of food at the feed stops, and the food at the finish was nicely priced. I definitely recommend this sportive and will be back next year.

Excellent course - MArlborough was a bit hazardous/busy but otherwise a splendid route and superbly marked and organised. The best spring sportive I have ever ridden.

Fantastic event, my first sportive and I loved it, very well-organised, signposted and marshalled and very friendly, and a really great route. I noticed a lot of discarded gel-packs along the way; a strong 'reminder' about this would have been good though frankly I think it's pathetic that this should be needed, personally I'd like to shoot the tyres of the litter-tossers.

Well organised, great route and an appropriate challenge. Only improvement would be a bit of food could be included in the ticket price at the finish rather than paying extra, as the event entry is towards the expensive end of the spectrum, though understand that this is for charity.

A great event on my door step. A good stretch of the legs for this point of the year. Thoroughly recommend this event. Fegal and the team helpful and friendly and raising money for a great cause
The King of the Hill is a really painful challenge to throw in!

Fantastic event over a wonderfully thought out route. Friendly atmosphere which really made me feel welcome and part of a big cycling family. Much better than the Wiggle über events!

Great event - this was my first sportif and I could not have hoped for a nicer bunch of people - both riders and organisers, and a better, more clearly-signed course. Will definitely come back next year. Whole thing was easy and hassle-free.
