Great day again. Beautiful views, marvelous marshals, fantastic photos, just all round brilliant!!
Hey Chris , we had a great time on Sunday , the Kind bar (gluten free) got me through the ride !
I just wanted to say thanks so much for putting on such a wonderful event on Sunday. I got my Dad an entry for his birthday, and we had the absolute best day. Brilliantly well planned & executed - many thanks!!
Thank you very much for posting and sending the riders time.
Unfortunately I got the direction all wrong, thought the ride would be clockwise, did not realise this till we turned right after the Lancaster foot bridge, so all my prep directions and hill climbs were back to front! Body was not in good condition after past weeks NHS workload pressures, so the last 15-20 miles was a struggle, especially the upslopes. Thankful no accidents / falling off bike.
In any case, it was an amazing event and spectacular route, the food station at Staveley helped, but missed the toilets by the bridge.
Absolutely splendid scenery of Morecambe Bay, and the hills around Kendal, especially on a sunny day (we were so lucky with the lovely weather)
Huge relief to arrive at the finish, my legs were like crumbling! The Goody pack was lovely to receive, and was nice to get a hot coffee and some shortcake biscuits etc at the finish food station. It was helpful to have toilets access at the leisure club, please pass my appreciation to the staff on duty. I've been back to work, and nearly fully recovered from my leg cramps. But when I reflect about the event, I wish to thank you again for all your incredible organisation of the event (including the multiple numbers of yellow arrows to keep riders on the ride track that would take so much time to put up and retrieve) and keeping everyone safe from the pothole!
Very well done! You deserve Gold Medal + Reward!!
Thanks for today team. First time I have done one of your events and I was mightily impressed with the organisation. Perfect day, perfect weather, I’ll be back next year for more.
What a belting event and ride that was put on yesterday. I must admit that when I spoke with you a couple of weeks back, you mentioned some “kickers” of climbs – that was hilly all the way round but that said the sportive and route went over my expectations and I really loved and had such a brilliant day.
Thanks again for organising such a well planned cycle sportive and just one more thing Chris the directional arrows made certain I got round without any bother.
Brilliant event, super helpful crew and staff who stayed out on the course for us despite our delays. Great event photos as well. Thank you so much for holding the event!
Such a well organised Sportive and the people are very nice. The route was perfect, a good mix with some nice challenges. My favourite one of 2023 and a great way to end the season.
thanks rowan and thanks to all at top dog for a sportive to savour!
so pleased top dog team - it was a great success as usual.
