Advertised as free tea & coffee but had to pay. Photographs still not available on website 1 week later. Would be nice to get a medal.

I offer a few thought as they may help improve the event:1: with so many riders in a small area at the start it was hard to find anywhere to put my bike. It would be worth considering getting some a-frame poles that riders can easily hang their bikes by the seat, this would increase capacity no end.2: getting water at the end of the ride was hard work. I ended up using a hosepipe tap ... not very professional... you need some of the water butts that were at the refreshment stops at the end... not everyone want alcohol after such a long ride.cheers

Shame not a medal for such a challenging ride, think a few tweaks needed to organisation on start finish, would have loved chip timing and be able to see a leaderboard. They also ran out of burgers at end of ride.

A quite difficult course. Quite clearly not a communal event but a racing "sportive ". This would have been fine if it had been promoted as such.
