    Positives: course and location, people,
    Things to enhance: Atmosphere a bit flat, no medal despite being advertised, some signage could be clearer, maybe offer people riding on their own a group that they could join, add in "treasure hunt" with prize at the end??

    Missed a turn so signage perhaps not as good as could be. Second feed stop at a busy and narrow part of a village - not ideal. Out of 30 or so who passed me, only 2 said hi - says a lot about cycling these days. No medal/bottle opener at the end.

    Lovely route around Wiltshire. Amazing flapjacks at the feed stops with friendly helpers. Welcome beer and burger at the end.

    Probably wouldn’t do it again but it was a good ride though a little expensive.

  • Did the Half Pint in 2019

    Excellent event, very well organised, extremely scenic course, well marked (even I couldn't;t get lost!), wonderful feed station and wonderful atmosphere at the finish. Half Pint this year, Full Pint in 2018 (I was cycle fit then!) and will be back in 2020 for one of the distances!!

    Did the Full Pint in 2019

    Well organised event. Interesting and varied route. Very clear and accurate signage. Good safety brief at beginning- a small point - it might be worth recording the script then playing it repeatedly for each starting group, if nothing else to save the starter's vocal chords !! Overall a really good event - look forward to next year's.
