Really enjoyed the course and day, first time I bought a friend along and he also loved it. Seemed quite quiet out on course, I guess end of season and people are busy or tired. Will be back

I did not do this event as I never entered it. Having been told the Chase distillery sportive was cancelled I replied that I would do the Purity sportive instead. I still intend turning up for this although no one has bothered to reply to my previous emails

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 race 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.
