Did the 50 Mile Route in 2019
The event was well organised (easy registration and clear signage on route) and had a great route. There was plenty of food at the feed stations to keep you going.

Did the 85 Mile Route in 2019
Well organised, and the feed station was well placed. Might’ve been nicer to go off in groups of a similar speed

Great feed station with hot drinks and selection of cakes. Pretty route with mix of flat country roads and a few steepish hills
