Only gripes were signage and that two food/drink stops would be good for a 100km distance - but thoroughly enjoyable and would do it again

Once again an excellent day/event , my only negative would have to be poor signage. Arrows were too small and hard to see which way it was pointing until you were upon them and I also think there should be a sign before and after a turn which would give you total confidence. we rode past three signs that we didn't see until too late and also a sign had been moved by Earlswood lakes which is unavoidable but if we had signs before and after we would have known we had been sent the wrong way. I know this is charity and love the event this is my only negative from an excellent day.

Very friendly, well organised and informal and in a really good cause. Great weather helped and unloike some sportives most riders were happy to have a chat rather than knock a few seconds off their time. In a couple of places the route followed a couple of quite busy roads that could have been avoided with the addition of a couple of extra miles - but generally it was very good. The etiquette of some (club) riders riding in groups left a little to be desired (overtaking on blind bends for example) but apart frpom those odd examples I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Have recommended the event to some work colleagues.

Excellent, well organised, value for money, sportive I would def enter again. I liked the way they had their own timings method and saved money on expensive chip equipment and so more money for the Hospice.

Fantastic, well organised event, super route, super friendly people. All round epic day. Really enjoyed it. I only marked the signage as 9 instead of 10 because sometimes, the arrows were difficult to see which direction they were pointing..just needs a larger arrowhead..there were plenty of signs and the organisers can't be responsible for the idiots that remove the signs! Feed stop was fab...much better than last year. Energy tablets for drinks and much better selection of energy foods. Thank you for another great day. See you next year.
