Did this first UKCE event with my son and we really enjoyed the challenge. Different sort of cycling than the IOW with longer roads to spin spin spin... but we've steep climbs too!!I'm gonna be doing more UKCE classics around the country for sure.Great experience - thank you.

Fantastic long course. Perfect distance and elevation for what is usually a hot weekend. Your signage was exceptional as was the thought you put in to the road selectionHighly recommended and nothing to improve at whatsoever. Very impressive organisation, helpful and great to see Marshall’s on the dangerous junctions too. Very reassuring. I’ll be recommending to my local clubs for next year.

Let the registration give people their numbers as they trickle in, with everybody with their thumb up their arses and brain in neutral, it’s a waste of time. All your doing is creating a backlog, on a personal note the last feed station could be closer, as I only stop at one I used the coop about 80 miles out, but that’s just me. A well organised and well run ride it’s my second year and will be coming again.
