I did the Gran Fondo. Fantastic event - challenging but beautiful course, good, well-stocked feed stations with friendly folks manning them, relaxed atmosphere to the whole event and a very good HQ at the start and finish.

Signage was very clear in general. A couple of points where it could've been better (location of the 2nd feed stop and a T-junction close to the end) but on the whole very good.

Loved this event and I'll be back next year, hopefully :-)

Everyone was friendly, atmosphere was great and there was agood selection of food after the ride.
I only did the medio but It was worth the 100 miles travel to do this ride.

I liked the feel of the event. Having done a larger sportive 2 weeks earlier - where there were loads more cyclists. I prefer smaller events. It felt like an event of old - nice and relaxed and cyclists that knew how to ride on the road. Leaving my bike up against the wall of the HQ was safe - unlike the last event, where someone stole my Oakleys from my bars!

It was my first event of this kind and I have a feeling it set the bar high. Friendly people, wonderful weather (apparently pre-ordered) and challenging route but well designed. Will be back next year.

This was my favourite of the 6 Sportives I have ridden this year. Well organised, good course, friendly and the best atmosphere at the finish. The one and only change I would like to see is the Gran Fondo starting at 8am rather than 8.30am.
