good route and easy and hassle free to enter online and start on the day, the weather undoubtedly helped as even though the area is generally flat and fast it can often be quite windy - the only thing I can't seem to find are where the timings are posted?

A well organised event. Only criticism would be the arrow signs were easy to miss being on a white background. Using a luminous background colour would have helped.

An extremely well organised and fun event. Course is quite flat through some very quiet roads. Ideal for somebody who wants to test themselves over a long distance before attempting something with more challenging climbs

Really enjoyed the event and will do it again next year without doubt. The 60 mile route was in fact 67, wish I'd known that before I speeded up for what I thought was the last 5 miles that turned out to be the last 13 miles. Loved every minute of it though.

First time I participated in such an event. I was amazed at the professionalism of all staff involved and how smoothly it was organised. The signposting was great, the staff and volunteers were very motivating and friendly, the feeding station was great and very welcome. Fantastic experience for a 1st timer on a mountain bike.
Thank you to all for making it a great event!

Great day out. Flat & fast course, but not the most beautiful of scenery, but that can't really be helped! Course organisers were great!

My first sportive, found everyone helpful and the course very easy to navigate with clear easy signage. Would give it 12 out off 10 if I could. Will be back next year.

The event was excellent and incredibly well managed, marshalled and signposted. One of the best I've done yet. Selby CC should be proud of themselves. Constructive criticism and very minor grumbles: Would have scored higher for facilities but the queues for the male toilets at feed stop were too long. Feed stops slightly marked down as would have liked energy drink/gels available (partner up with High 5 for example) and could have done with them being spaced out a little differently as 60 miles to 100 miles was tough with no feed stop - I ran out of drinks despite two 750ml bottles. If possible, perhaps have the 100 mile route do 40 miles before the first stop as 25 came around too soon and 60 was too early. 40 and 65-70 would be ideal. Anyway, WELL DONE to all concerned. Worth the journey from Stockton!

As a first time sportive rider, this was an excellent starter event and I intend to do it again ! My only criticism, if qualified to make one, was I thought the feed station a bit too small and crowded with a very long queue to use the toilet facilities. Drinks and food well stocked. Overall a very enjoyable event.
