Absolutely Stunning route, some warning signs are needed for some very very sharp bends.
Feed stops could do with some quick release energy snacks. (gels,bars, etc)

The route is a well signed , scenic and challenging which makes it Epic . This is the third year I have taken part and was disappointed not to have the option of a Tea of coffee at the food stops or a savoury food option , this was a common grumble with other riders especially those that had travelled some distance to attend . .
That said the food at the finish was excellent .

Excellent organisation, friendly helpful staff, food not as good as at the Demon ride in Llandrindod, which was excellent. Long may the Autumn Epic Sportive continue, I hope to be back next year 😊 best wishes Paul Hughes

A well run event but unfortunately we were discouraged from taking the 150km route by staff at the 2nd feed station resulting in being finished well over 1.5 hours earlier than others who completed it. The 2nd feed station was far too soon after this. Despite this I would definitely sign up this event next year

Superb sportive, well organised, so professional and friendly, great food stop, easy to follow signage and the scenery was breath taking in more ways that one. The hardest sportive I have ever done that's for sure, but if you don't climb a hill you don't get the views, and there were plenty of glorious views!

An all time favourite, this Sportive is well and truly back on the calendar. Challenging course, excellent signage and super location for the HQ. I
just don't see how it can be improved....but maybe seconds of shouldn't be so good!
