Great course, good for hill training! Good atmosphere. Could have done with a few more toilets at start and the odd reminder of distance to feeding station would help a newbie like me. Great day, hope to do it again. Thank you.

Great ride with a nice atmosphere. Some cheeky climbs in there but do some hill work before and it will make them easier.
