Really enjoyed this event and will be sure to enter it again although bad weather has the potential to make it very difficult. I rated the feed stations lower as other sportives that I've entered had wider choice and some imaginative options. Nothing nutritionally wrong with what was on offer here though. Very well organised and safety a high priority. Well done to the organisers.

would consider the event the best in Wales - value for money, well organized, excellent signage and marshalling , feeding stations were well above average plus facilities at the start/finish were impeccable.

Rode the first event in 2013 which was awesome so looked forward to the 2014 event and they managed to make the experience even better! Brilliant event HQ, sign on was very well organised and no portable toilets to be found! Really challenging well marked route with spectacular views, the feed stations were also good. Some of the friendliest people Ive ever rode with, can't wait for the 2015 event. More of the same please!

One of the best run events I've been to from start to finish only done the standard route this year be back for the epic next year would recommend plenty of hill training to tackle the course, friendly marshals and the views as you cycle through the valleys are stunning. Awesome day out !!

The Valleys Velo was a well organised event with an amazing course. The enthusiasm and hard work of all involved was a credit to the Bike Doctor cycling club members and friends. Looking forward to next year's event.

An awesome event. The most challenging ride I've ever done and I think that in the coming years it will draw riders from far and wide! A ride-through chip scanner would be the icing on the cake for me.

Well organised and planned event. Feed stations could have been stocked with some variety rather than just water, bananas and flapjack at both feed stations. Shame about the drawing pins causing multiple punctures! Overall though, I would ride again.
