Did the Full Pint in 2021
A demanding course with lots of climbs. Car parking is a bit tight using the brewery yard, but well marshalled to pack everyone in. No medal at the end:-(. The course is mostly clear of main roads but some of the country lanes are in poor condition so not he smoothest ride. A relative small sportive for numbers taking part, so unlike some of the larger events, no queues to register or start.

Very well organised. The route was challenging with fantastic views and it was well marked. Two very good break stops with plenty to refuel the body.

Early in the cycling season wasn't quite ready for the challenging Herefordshire hills, but what a great sense of achievement when done. Topped off with a super pint of Wye Valley stout and a double burger. So we'll organized worth all the pain and inspirational for rest of season training.

Did the Full Pint in 2019
The route was excellent, on quiet beautiful roads through the Worcestershire countryside, with some decent climbs, especially over the Malvern hills! The organisation was good, with plenty of room and facilities at the start and with a barbecue and beers (obviously!) at the end. It all made for a very enjoyable day.

Great day out...lovely route,mostly well off the beaten track. Plenty of climbing and some thrilling descents...and the major grind up the Malverns...a perfect combination for a not overly long day.Beer and burgers at the finish,sandwiches and a cuppa at the feed stops. Highly recommended!

Did the Half Pint in 2019
Brilliant route but we were very disappointed that there was NO food at the food station! We had been promised lots of goodies - sandwiches, flapjacks etc that did not materialise. They did not even have milk for tea! Very disheartening for riding and especially when you need the energy.
