Thank you to everyone who made this a fantastic, friendly and enjoyable Sportive. It was the most enjoyable event I have ridden. I think the "big name" Sportives could learn a few things from your organisation. I also appreciated being able to view my time within a few minutes of finishing. I will definitely be entering again next year.

First time for the Redkite. Did the 100 mile, which was a great and scenic route (if a little flat for my tastes). I thought everything about the event was exceptionally well planned and run, topped off for me by the BBQ and beers at the finish. Will look forward to next year.

I`ve done the 80 mile route of this event twice now and this year was exceptional. Parking, meeting at the event, facilities at the event and up to date info for the route was brilliant. Everyone at Marlow Riders and all the Marshals were polite and professional. The route marking was the best I`ve seen in any of the sportives I`ve ridden. Awesome stuff!

This was the second time that I have riden the 50 mile route and it was even more enjoyable this year. The route was well planned and signed and the marshalls were really friendly and helpful. The cakes were amazing!! Hope to be back next year.

My first ever Sportive even - having ridden one Audax and otherwise by myself, was a bit apprehensive as to what to expect. Pleasantly surprised! Professionally organised event, great ride through scenic country side (my first 80 miler ever), great people and fellow-riders. Seriously thinking about next year's entry .....

Brilliant event, our second year doing the 100. Shame more people don't stay on after as the BBQ and beer tent are very welcome. Stewards/marshals and everyone else involved could not do any more to help.

Superb event, good company. Some rerouting due to flooded ford meant use of busy road but weather related so couldn't be avoided.

This was the first time we had done it
And it has become an instant "must do" for us
Only closed-road events are better
So this is right up there with the very best of the "open-roaders"
A real credit to the organisers
Brilliant !

Nice mix of terrain and mostly quiet roads and pretty villages. Really well organised, fun start/finish village, friendly volunteers on feed stops and great support from marshalls. The only minor fly in the ointment was the slightly ambiguous sign right at the end which we mis-interpreted, lost a couple of minutes and probably cost us a silver time :) Even that was removed as soon as we pointed it out though.

My first Red Kite event and throughly enjoyed it. Organisation was excellent the route was excellent and was nice to go through areas that weren't too traffic busy. Was particularly Impressed with the pit stops. BBQ and socialising at the end was also very good. A definite event that will be on my calender for next year. Thank you for a great event

The 50 mile course was very well planned. Great scenery along reasonably safe roads. This was my first sportive and I feel encouraged to have another go. No major criticisms but it would have been good to have a more visible cycling club recruitment presence (not just Marlow Riders).
