This was an outstanding event. Organisation was top notch; loads of free parking at the start, lots of friendly marshals, good feed stations and photographers at three places around the route to record your efforts. The ride itself is tough, with two particularly demanding climbs, but tough in a good way, and the views are stunning. I found everyone incredibly friendly. Looking forward to next year already. 10/10.

Thoroughly well organised, very friendly and great scenery. Some brutish climbs too.
Where else do you get a tour stage winner helping you park as last year, or passing out bananas as this year, great to riders young and old. No fuss.
Electronic chip times would help out for future for ease.

A super event, brilliant support from everyone with all turns being marshalled, a closed start, two well timed/placed food stops and great facilities/post race meal at the end plus a visible first aid car doing the rounds and a photographer.

If you wanted to be petty and picky you could say they need to stock gels and carb drinks at the food stations, but flapjacks and bananas are great for riding on and at 70 miles it is not a mind blowingly long ride; I took a couple of sachets of carb drink powder with me to mix in with the water that was available while you can fit enough of your favourite ride food in your pockets.

I'm looking forward to next years already and will take myself round the course when I get a day pass - thoroughly enjoyed the ride!
