Done it 4 times always enjoy the ride and the facilities have improved in the time I have been doing it. The feed stations are much better now. Could do with maybe more toilets at the second feed station.

I love this route - starts flat and fast then gradually the hills roll in. After the second feed station it feels like everything is uphill into the wind, long drag after long drag wear you down, then, just as you start counting the kilometres to go you turn and get confronted by Uffington Hill. Great feeling when you get to the top though then powering downhill all the way to the finish. Will definitely repeat next year.

I am a massive fan of this event and pretty much stay up to book in on the opening date to ensure I get in. I was tempted to say that i wouldn't recommend it as this increases demand and threatens my and my friends ability to be sure of getting in every year. If you ran this exact same course again at another point in the year I would beat your doors down to get a place. If you organise another event on a different course please be sure to tell me. I only wish other events were as welcoming, friendly and well marshalled. Thank you and see you next year. Can I book 10 places now please? Tom Dixon, BAD Tri.

This was my first sportive and I thought it was great. Very efficient and friendly organisation. Excellent feed stations. Brilliant timing and results website (dbmax). I liked the welcoming of finishers with "Well done Michael" - a very nice touch.

This is by far the most enjoyable sportive I have ever ridden. Enough climbing to be a challenge but also not choppy so that riding in a group all the way round is possible.

Good enjoyable event, plenty of marshals looked to be well organised, luckily I did not have to use the support stuff so no idea on how good it was. Weather great for time of year.
