Overall, it was a very good event. Couple of pointers - The feed station was quite poor compared to other events I attended, including UK's Hardest Hundred.Photos - only managed to find myself in 1x and even there, I am hardly visible. So that is disappointing.

All in all. A good way to break my event duck. I'm looking forward to next years medium route. Hopefully there will be fewer potholes.

Completed a few Wiggle events this year and this was by far the toughest. Coming from the flat Fenlands of Norfolk the hills were challenging for me to say the least, but still enjoyed this well organised event..I'm glad I chose the Standard route this year but would like to attempt the Epic next year..

This was my first sportive, so not got anything to compare it with! Was very glad that I had a gps nav device with the course on it, as when i missed a turning (I was getting carried away on a downhill) it pointed it out to me really quickly!Course knowledge, it would be nice is there were some 5k to go or such signs (not too many!) but a couple would have been helpful.Not sure what happened to my box of gels though!

Excellent, this was my third Wiggle / UK Cycling Events event this year. A couple of signage placements need to be reviewed - the junction came up a lot faster than expected. Wet roads and leaves caused a few challenges in places.

Thinking of doing middle on my own, slightly concerned about safety, were there plenty of people around or will I be on my own mostly, I’m guessing it depends on number of entries?

Hi Debbie, Great to hear you're keen to take part. This does all depend on the number of participants taking part and also your speed vs the other participants. Usually you don't ride most of this alone but It is hard to say I'm afraif.
