First time I have ridden this event, excellent route. Did the "80", shame about the road closure but Buttertubs was an "experience". Really well organised, would definitely do it again

Punctured bicycle on a hillside desolate. Well, mercifully not, and the charming men (and women) of Richmond organised a fantastic event in the stunningly beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

Great event, very friendly, super route and a great feed station. I did the 53 mile run as I didn't feel the best of health and the weather wasn't the best, however I took too much rain gear when it only drizzled.

Highly recommended, but watch out for that road sign for Kirby!

Can't fault the Richmond CC team. This is an excellent event. A good route in a beautiful area supported by an enthusiastic and friendly bunch of people. Highly recommended and unbelievable for £15. This event is worthy of much higher numbers but is probably limited by the parking facilities at HQ. Moving the finish to outside of the town centre was a top notch idea.

Second year that i have ridden and once again very impressed by the excellent value for money and the friendly organization. The weather was a lot worse than last year and it was probably the hardest 6 hours and 38 minutes that i have ever spent on my bike but there was nothing the Richmond CC could do about that! The design of the three different courses gives the opportunity for cyclists of different standards to be involved in the same day out & start together. I would very highly recommend this event.

Good event, lovely area, lots of sililar roads to Etaoe du Dales. Shame there was no finisher gift/reward, but the entry fee was low so can't complain too much

A very well organized event. A good course, plenty of hard climbing, but interspersed with some easier sections. Roads were generally quiet. Weather conditions this year were pretty challenging, but it was still a highly enjoyable ride. Organisers should be congratulated on putting on such a high quality sportive for a £15 entry fee.

Great event. Very well organised. My only grumble would be the inadequate toilet provision for the large number of riders. Otherwise excellent. I'll be doing this one again next year.

Start and finish a bit low key, no obvious start/finish line to cross but generally excellent professionally run event, registration particularly slick. Signage a bit poor in places Feedstations great, the teams helping out all very supportive and obviously happy to be there, unfortunately I was a bit slow for getting to the last sausage roll at Keld. I underestimated the first leg to Keld hardest 30 miles I think I have ever ridden, particularly with head wind. My computer measured the 80 at 84 miles (difference all on the last leg from Hawes). Great day riding a great course hope to be back next year. Many thanks to Richond Cycling Club.

A lovely route to ride. Did the 80 mile route and clocked it at 83 miles. Doesn't sound much of a difference but it was enough to stop me getting Silver for the stated distance/time. There are a couple of tricky bits of road that could catch out the unwary so a couple of event specific warning signs would be useful. Overall though it was an excellent experience and would highly recommend this event.

Excellent event, lovely area and well designed course and options to suit all, challenging but not stupidly so!; foodstops very good, one of the best, and value for money outstanding--£15 for three well stocked stops and end event food wow!! Top marks for all above
Only improvement would be some more warning signage eg bad descents, corners for riders,
