First sportive I've taken part in and had a great day on the red route. Two punctures and a split tyre didn't spoil the day. Fantastic assistance from the support vehicle.

Super event. Very well organised! Loved the food at the end too.
Score down only in the course because some of the roads quite busy.
However beautiful scenery in an area quite close by but unexplored. Will do so in future. Thank you all very much.

My first Kinross Sportive, although now a member of the Kinross CC this was my first chance to participate in the event. It was very well run, the organisation has a very professional feel to it. The course (red) was a challenge with a great mix of terrain. Weather helped keeping dry most of the run. Big,big thank you to all who arraned the event.

As a first time rider I found this event very well organised but not over organised, it was relaxed and friendly and everything just worked. The route was great: scenic, testing and varied. A big thank you to all the marshals - they gave clear communication as you approached a junction or hazard and we even had some cheery locals waving us on. I can see why this ride sells out quickly.

A few localised road closures might be good - Dunning glen and Lomond Hill traverse perhaps. There were a couple of maniacs cutting up the riders on these stretches. Otherwise a great event and will be back next year! Thanks to all those who were involved

Excellent event my only negative comment relates to fellow riders who believe such events are pure racing.

fantastic sportive and so so so well organised. my only thing is I would prefer a slightly different last few miles to avoid the long straight busy road into kinross.this would make the course a few miles shorter so might not suit everyone. feed stations not as good as other years but still plenty of cakes and water .

Did not see any marshals patrolling the course till late on and was only the lead car. That said a really good well organised event.

My very first sportive, and all my pre-ride nerves and concerns were entirely dissipated by the helpers, marshals, signage etc. Some beautiful roads and challenging hills, and wonderful cakes! My only little moan would be that there were no savouries for the veggies in place of the sausage rolls (although I had a pocketful of onigiri, so did OK for myself), and the final junction in Kinross was not signed.

Another very well organised event. Think having the opportunity to sit down with your fellow participants and have a natter in the dining hall is a great thing - marks it out from many other Sportives. Keep up the good work..
