Did the Full Pint in 2019
The support for this sportive was amazing. It was such a well run event. The course was reasonable and slightly dull at times but definitely made up for the fact that there was burgers and beer at the end.

Let's Go Velo always put on such an amazing event. I cracked the Full Pint route of 60 miles and thoroughly enjoyed my full pint after the sportive. Big thumbs up

Did the Half Pint in 2019
Great well organised route with plenty signs and back up. Great burger and beer at the end although it was advertised as a pint but only got a can.
Did the Full Pint in 2019
Good venue, lovely weather, reasonable course. The organisation was a bit haphazard, but it didnt detract from the event. The gpx files offered did not match with the signposted route sometimes, and the start time was a bit delayed. Everyone was very friendly however, and the beer and burger at the end were much appreciated!
Did the Half Pint in 2019
This was a fantastically well organised event, so much so that I almost missed the start by turning up at the tail end of the registration window. The course was very well suited to the riders it was aimed at and to suit the 'Sunday' leisurely atmosphere that surrounded the whole event. On completion, the event staff were very welcoming, encouraging and open to assist in recuperation with well deserved (at least I think so) food and drink provided by the event hosts. Well done Lets Go Velo and Brewdog!!

A great event, well organised with a friendly atmosphere throughout the ride. 2nd year I have done this and looking forward to 2020.
Did the Full Pint in 2019
The Brewdog sportive was a great day, the course was well marked and not too challenging. The weather was lovely. I appeared to be well organised and the burgers at the end were awesome! Great day out.

This was a very well organised and friendly event. Stunning route with great views. The burger and beer at the end just the icing on the cake at the end. I will be back next year.
