An excellent ride which is well organised. Unfortunately the weather spoiled it slightly this year but the support at the end, as always was worth it.

Well organised event, friendly, enthusiastic and efficient support staff : registration, timing, feed stop and at race HQ.
Was particularly impressed with the rapid and covered registration process, the finish line/ locality and the use of village halls as feed stations.
Good job organisers.

Difficult enough in places to be a challenge but lovely quiet roads and great scenery coupled with good organisation and friendly help made it a great event for a first timer. Definitely a tiny thing and hardly a complaint - more an observation - but it would have been nice to get a tea urn that provided hot water and tea! :)

This was my first ever sportive and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. From start to finish.
The finish on michaelgate was the icing on the cake. A real sense of achievement. I have told plenty of others. May even do the Lincoln mini GP in September. Thanks again for a great day out. Hope to be back next year.

Excellent event, well organised with great staff. Even the weather couldn't spoil the grand experience of charging up the cobbles. Looking forwards to 2014 already.

A great route - and a classic sportive. What could be improved? Well, better timing with feed stops in/out times, more variety at feed stops as previously mentioned eg sandwiches, a better goody bag and A MEDAL would all be welcome. £25 is a lot of money, especially for local riders who can ride the route regularly - we want to support the sportive, but without some improvements as suggested it is getting hard to justify the outlay. Also, visitors to Lincoln should be taking home something a little more tangible than a drinks bottle and dodgy hat! Thanks.

Fantastic sportive, great route, Lincolnshire is not flat! I live a mile from michaelgate and often do laps on it, but hitting it after 99 miles was different! Still had enough for a sprint finish though, roll on "le petit gp" in September! Well done to itp events, top notch! 100% from me.

Very well run event ,first 2 feed stations a bit close together ,loads of riders rode the wrong way down a one way street to get back to hq ,much to the annoyance of locals i have had to defend the event to two shop owners and residents in the last few days Arrows to finish a good idea

Was a bit weary of not overdoing it but at the end wished I'd done the longer route. Classic finish up the cobbled hill

1st feed stop - only 1 toilet, therefore potential long queue
2nd feed stop too far round route, needed to be 10-15 miles earlier
Why no signs from finish to race HQ, and why not allow riders to hand in timing system at finish so they can avoid unnecessary trip back to HQ.
Route was excellent and overall an excellent event.
