Feedback from Sunday

Thanks to all concerned making it one of the best sportives I have attended.Think the start was a lot better and felt a lot less congested. The course was challenging enough - shame about the wind, All helpers were upbeat and the feed station welcomes were just right Thanks again & will look forward to next year.

I just wanted to say we thought the new starting system worked really well today. We were really impressed how quickly the line moved and we were able to get started. Here's a write-up which I did for our blog which you might find interesting: longstantonwheelers blog Thanks for organising yet another great event. We're pleased that local charities benefit from this too. We'll certainly be back for more next year.

Many thanks to you and your team for a great day out last Sunday. That was a splendid route - I've never seen Grimsthorpe Castle before and I enjoyed everything the wind, the threatening rain, the sunshine, and a welcome cup of tea when I got back to Marholm. Thanks again to all concerned

We would like to thank all the volunteers (especially the cake and tea makers) for organising this event for a worthwhile charity. My daughter & I entered the previous event but agreed that the start was a lot better this time. We are looking forward to the next event. Once again thank you.
