    Did the Full Pint - 60 Miles in 2019

    It was sold as not a race, open to all. However when we arrived at the finish, they had closed everything down and were about to leave. We saw no sweeper van or cyclist. I was very disappointed from a health and safety point of view it was lacking. We cycled at an average of 10 mph.

    A really excellent sportive. Will definitely be doing again next year. Good course, well stocked feed points and a free pint at the end.

    Really enjoyable sportive - no timings which meant no-one was chasing a time and so rode to enjoy it! Small event which I much prefer and a really cracking day out. Beer at the finish was the cherry on top! Superb

    The start was a bit slow but the course was fabulous and I must thank the person who loaded the route in to my Garmin

    A well organised and friendly event throughout the undulating Northamptonshire countryside. Good signage and food stops with the security of 'roving' mechanical assistance if needed. My first cycling sportive, I would definitely recommend Let's Go Velo 'Brewery Cycle Series' and look forward to the next one!
  • Did the Full Pint - 60 Miles in 2019

    Fantastic day! Enjoyed the route, a different way of joining up local roads. One little glitch was the closed road patch, cars coming out and turning right just didn't understand we were going straight on. The atmosphere was great, despite the attempts from the weather to drown it. Will definitely do this again.
  • Did the Half Pint - 35 Miles in 2019

    First time sportive. Last rode this distance in the 70's! Glad I did some research and training. Well organised, signposted and staff at feedstation were great. Looking forward to the next one.
