A fantastic sportive to complete my first 100 mile ride, with a good mix of fast quiet roads, testing ascents, some cracking scenery and excellent marshalling. Well worth the 100 mile drive from Herefordshire to take part.

Well done to Marlow Riders for a very positive first event, thanks guys!

Very well organised and direction markings good (Keep this standard up). I downloaded the 100 mile gps which was a track rather than a route and it got truncated when loading to my GPS device, I did not see this - Better if track had had number of points reduced to less than 100. I intend to ride this again if it is on next year.

A really nice run out on a Sunday morning. Shame that there couldn't be any Gold, Silver, Bronze time targets to aim at but enjoyed it all the same.

Probably the finest sportive I have had the pleasure of riding. Exceptional scenery and a really well-thought out route by a passionate cycling club newly formed in Marlow. The enthusiasm and friendliness of the organisers and marshalls was great. Consistent and clear signage along the route. Nice grounds to chill out after the ride.
Can't wait for next year's ride and have already recommended it to friends.

The route /signage to the roundabout before The Mill at Sonning was good but once I got onto the A4, I was unsure if I had taken the correct route until I reach the next roundabout turning right into Twyford. As a local living in Marlow, when I got to the "T" junction I knew to turn right over Marlow bridge but for a none local they may have been unsure on which way to turn - no sign. Good event would do it again.

Great ride. Though being a local rider I was surprised it wasn't better publicised locally.
I'm sure that more members of my club (Maidenhead) Would have ridden if they had known earlier. Hopefully next year we'll have a stronger turn out.

Needed much clearer signing between the parking and the start
