I had friends pay for the half pint and follow me round the full pint, and one friend that joined us who hadn't paid. 37 quid to follow a course I could do tomorrow, a bottle of warm beer (rather than a voucher to get a pint and sit in the garden). I've no idea what I paid 37 quid for 🤣 no medal, no tee shirt, can't find any photos. Just a money grabber.

My first Sportive and it was a very good experience. Well organised and a great event plus location.

It would be safer to run the (full pint) course anti-clockwise, so that the majority of turns at junctions are left turns. The current clockwise routing creates a lot of right turns, turning across oncoming traffic and/or creating more traffic delays for vehicles behind us whilst we were waiting in the middle of the road for a safe gap to turn across oncoming traffic. Other than that though, a great event, route and venue. Thanks.

Very enjoyable ride and the helpers were very helpful and friendly. It would have been ideal if the second refreshment stop was around 40 miles, rather than 50.
