Great fun event with some very hard climbs in a beautiful part of the world. HQ site was very good - lots of parking and plenty of room with a good coffee available before the start. Post race food was great, as were the sausage rolls at checkpoints. Stopped for a pint and pork scratching's in Reeth en route - great and well worth losing the time spent there!

A good event, like the way the results can be displayed so that I can compare my effort to others. 3 food stops are good - saves having to carry.

Being able to 'dib out' at each feed station would give a more accurate moving time to complete the route. An overall start/finish time would weed out those resting for ages to secure a better moving time.

Very tough and cleverly thought out route through stunning countryside. We were blessed on the day with perfect conditions. Feed stops had a good selection of food and the event was great value for money. I love the way the organisers put in the climb over Grinton moor at 102 miles when you think it will be a simple cruise back down the valley to Richmond! Fantastic route, great organisation and would highly recommend this sportive to those who love big climbs and fast descents!

Only rated question 5 as a 5 as I had no knowledge of the out riders or support vehicles? This was my first event and will be back next year. Very well organised event

This is a very well organised event in a fabulous area. The 118 miles,, 5 Dales route is mainly on quite lanes and contains some seriously testing climbs. It is also excellent value! Far too many sportives are now silly money and too many people get carried away with the hype. The only suprising thing is that this does not get booked up more quickly!

Enjoyable good value event. Fantastic challenging route including 3 Grand Depart Tour de France climbs. Excellent hq with tarmac car park, proper toilets changing and showers. Volunteers all friendly and professional. Feed stations - initially good but 3rd feed station (which is the same as the second station for those on the 118 mile route) had run out of the proper food (sausage rolls) by the time we got there - just when you need it.

Meal at hq good added bonus.

The scenery is awesome, the roads quiet, climbs testing. Well signed route including the beginning of each climb.

I would highly recommend this event.

Great event, well organised, fantastic route. Thanks to all organisers and marshals. Only suggestions would be better signage between finish and school and Gold/silver/bronze standards for women.

A brilliant sportive, which had everything you could wish to get out of a days cycling. Glorious scenery, cracking climbs and descents, spot on weather and a great friendly atmosphere.
The organisation, marshalls including medical support and volunteers were superb.
The only thing that could have made it even better would have been a compulsory ice cream at Reeth... Ha Ha!
Next years date is in the diary, looking forward to it already.
