Favourite event of the year again. Well organised, friendly, good course, brilliant scenery.
Only spoiler is the tedious waiting at the start hearing the same 4 minute spiel 6 times over while your group crawls toward the start line. Ok on a warm morning, but far too long standing still on colder ones. Some poor people dressed for the wait, and really overheated into the event.

The shorter route at 19 miles was a great introduction to Sportives for my 11 year old son. Timing very simple, but seemed accurate. Very friendly and well run. Only bananas and water at feedstation, but that was all we needed on this length of run. Excellent food at finish!

great event, well run on beautiful quiet roads with great views. Still plenty of challenge climbs so not a soft option :-)

it did flow as a well organised event. The support at the start and finish were exceptionally friendly. And the spread of food showed home grown attention

This was my first time cycling around this area and it was much more than I expected. The scenery of the route was breathtaking at times and the route itself was one of the best of any sportive. Obviously the weather made a big impact but this doesn't take away the days riding experience. The food at the end was fantastic and was most welcome. This shall be a permanent fixture in my own and my friends calendar.

Good day, good ride, great route, food stop was a little bare on essentials
Would be good to have a check in & out at the food stops so you could have a ride time as well as an overall time
Nothing too great to detract from a good event

Excellent organisation and a great scenic route. Everyone is friendly and traffic encountered were patient with the groups.
Great welcome back with ample food to replenish us all after the run. Sunshine simply added to a great event.

I had a thoroughly enjoyable day. Though I was the only one from my club (and English!) I felt very welcome, both around the HQ and out on the road with members of local cycling clubs. Thanks again, organisers for a great day.

A wonderful route that was greatly helped by fantastic weather on the day. This was the best sportive that I have taken part in over the years. The only improvement could have been to have had energy supplement drink at the feed stop.

Brilliant day out and a well organised event which I will definitely ride again. Easy to follow signage, good roads, safe and with a few wee surprises near the end with all those hills just when my legs needed them least.
