Excellent event - many thanks

PS it is slightly unsatisfactory to have to answer all the questions in the survey - some questions may not apply, eg if you did not need to sue the sag wagon

A superb ride. Absolutely stunning countryside. Very well planned and organised. The route was on quiet roads for nearly all the 90 miles. No wonder it sells out in 12 hours!

Would a shorter route be a possibility? The event is a tough one..but some would like a shorter introduction?

Not a bad word to say about the organisers or the ride itself, great day as ever - nice choice at feed stations and clear signs at danger spots. Excellent all round and generally pleasant participants. Would recommend fkw club riders that do this ride, learn good etiquette. I don't care how important your time is, this event is great because it lacks aggro, it's important to keep it that way - safe passing is priority, this isn't the Giro.

A really good event and a great course. A massive thanks to all who organised this event and to the marshals who gave up their day to stand on corners and point us in the right direction!

Great route, and the event is well organised. My only criticism is the use of the a4361 as its such a busy and dangerous road. We saw 2 near misses between bikes and cars this year.

I didn't use the feed stations so couldn't comment - but as I had to fill in a number went down the middle

This was my second white horse challenge and it was a great event once again. It keeps off main roads which is great, the feed stops are right where you need them and of course it is a very challenging ride. A fantastic ride to kick start the season.
