The only thing I felt that was lacking compared to other events was the support. I only saw amenities and food with helpful staff at feed zones.

No mechanical support which I believed was going to be present.
Other than that really good day out.

I really enjoyed the event. Very friendly. Excellent route marking and a good area to ride in. Needed more loos, but this is my only recommendation. Highly recommended. I'm not aware of outriders or sag wagon so I've marked 5/10 for that, which brought down my overall score.

My first ever long ride on my road bike, thoroughly enjoyed the route, wished there could have been another feed station round mile 40 ish as didn't realise how tired you get riding for such long stretches of time.

Also can't find info on numbers of riders, male/ female or ideas of times for the different ride lengths, so no way of gauging how I did

A great event, even the cold weather and a puncture in the first mile could not detract from an excellent day out.

Signage was well beyond my expectations. At no point did I need to glance at my Garmin/GPX to know where I was going. Feed stations were great too

60km and 100km with some hills. the people running this event had planned and executed it very well. Marshals on the course were smiling and encouraging to all riders.

I would (and probably will) do it again and will recommend it. Starting at Hemel you are not going to have the greatest areas of outstanding beauty but the route used the available area very well I thought.

It was cold but that didn't affect the event. The 2nd feed stop on the 100k route was too close to the first and just before a couple of the harder climbs but that's the only minor issue in a well run event.
