A great route, with a clever mix of fast flat sections, rolling roads as well as some short tough climbs to keep things interesting. Extremely friendly staff/marshalls on the day - every rider (I saw) was cheered and clapped by the organisers as they crossed the finish line and were handed their medals.

Fantastic day, beautiful course. Challenging hills coupled with long sweeping downhills. The last Horse hill is clearly the idea of a madmen. 2nd time back, and will be back again. Thank you

The White Horse Challenge has to be one of the best sportives the UK has to offer. It is superbly managed, excellently marshalled and signposted, very friendly and even the cake was first class. Neither White Horse Hill nor the cheeky 17% climb out of Ramsbury could dampen the mood. Even the grumpiest, pickiest cyclist would not be able to find fault.

Very friendly. Nice and small caring feel to the ride. Great choice of food at the feedstops including savoury things such as crisps and TUC biscuits. I would definitely ride again.

My 4th time, I just love this event! It has the perfect balance of having maintained a sense of a local/medium sized cycle club event without the feeling of hostility from other road users due to the massive growth experienced at other larger events... can't wait for next years event!

A very friendly sportive. One notable aspect was the quality of the marshalling with marshalls providing guidance at all potential dangerspots
