This was the third time I have taken part in this event, and this was the best by far. The event HQ had a great atmosphere and the changes to the route made a huge difference, upgrading it from very good to fantastic. The weather helped but I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the day from the moment I arrived. This has to rate as the best sportive I have ridden so far. Might have to step up to the long route next year just to improve the enjoyment levels even more.

Have ridden this four times was the best...the weather helped..but the change in route really did make it a great ride...the front loading of Brooke and Ridlington rather than them being at the end made it more enjoyable...the marshals were great, quality of food at Owston was terrific and the friendliness of the riders was a credit too...nice one Ian..will be back next year too...

This was a thoroughly well organised event. Good pre-ride information, well chosen route (challenging but not impossible), exceptionally friendly and helpful mashalling throughout, route arrows all present and correct, excellent food. Will certainly ride it again next year.

My first 'proper' sportive - glad I entered, will now ride more especially if this is an indication of the standard of others. Very enjoyable day, well done to organisers, helpers and the weather.

Would definitely recommend this sportive, great countryside, well organised, and good food. Of course, the weather helped make a great day even greater.

Excellent ride - way tougher than most people expect. Having tried it before I did more training this year. Still hurt horribly, next stop Lincoln GP :-)

My first and certainly not my last sportive. Great communication by the organiser. Very friendly staffing. Not a cheap bike ride but I can see organising this events shouldn't go unrewarded and we were well catered for.

I have done a handful of sportives and many organised running events and would put this up with one of the best organised events I have ever done! Cant wait for next year.
The only (very) minor gripe was the first food station could have done with being a tad further on the short route.

Fantastic event, best I've done to date. Superb organisation, constant communication leading right up to the event, well signed, good provisions in a beautiful part of the country. Check out their Lincoln GP Sportive too if you fancy a flavour of how good this was!
