over the last five years having traveeld all areas of the UK and entered many sportives this was clearly the best. The organisation and value for money in addition tho the friendliness of support staff made this exceptional.
Well organised, well done to all those who helped put this event together and make it so enjoyable. See you all next year with some extra riders.

Only thing I could fault was the lack of toilets at 1st feed station. The lady at the windmill cafe was not allowing people to use their toilets (shan't be cycling out for a coffee to this cafe again).

I still think the items in the goodie bag in the plastic bag are a waste of time - I'd rather have a banana and a mars bar. Seriously who wear those T-shirts, that are masculine...I'd rather be able to opt out and give the GBP3 to charity. The rest is freebie stuff...and I really don't need another hi5 bottle....have 1 cupboard full of them...even I don't lose enough to warrant keeping it - straight down the charity shop!!! Signage great, but would like tea option at second feedstop please.

Excellent Sportive. Thought the signage and route were both superb, if I were to be really picky I would have preferred more of a view of Belvoir Castle (and I know I'm being picky stating this). I only scored the feedstation(s) 7 due to the limited amount of savoury food / snacks.

Overall the event was very well planned, good road signs and easy to see on approach.
My only niggle was the timing. It had me down as stopping at the first feed station, which I didn't, and not leaving another feed station, which of course i did, because I completed the course. The overall score is down due to these issues, and the support question wasn't relevant but nor did i see any on-course support, which I suppose is positive. Overall a good day, and the sun came out.

Knipton Village Hall toilet facilities were VERY poor (needed additional portaloos if no other appropriate venue on the route) - queuing for loos not good. In comparison, Long Clawson Village Hall was a good choice.

The finish needed better traffic management. The carpark to the arena was very busy in the lunch time period, presumably with other people using the facilities at the arena who were not doing the cycle event. Was extremely dangerous coming into the car park at the end with lots of cars moving around.

The timing for gold, silver and bronze was not clear i.e. when we got to Long Clawson we were told to go into and out of a computerised enter/exit which was explained to us as time being taken off the finish time, but this does not seem to have happened when we look at the finish time which includes the stop time at Long Clawson.

Really well organised event, as an old man it would be nice to have age categories so as a 64 year old fosil (Fit Old Senior in Lycra) compared to a 40 year old Mamil or a 22 year old flyer I could compare with my age group. But thats just an opinion.

I didn't need the support vehicles so can't really comment. I would have liked to have had more private/appealing shower facilities so I could have showered before going home. I might have had a massage too, had it been somewhere less public. High five drinks with caffeine would have been another bonus. Altogether, it was a good day., in a beautiful region of UK. Challenging for a beginner like me (I did 100K), but I can work towards doing it in a better time next year.
