"I took part in the London to Cambridge ride on Sunday, I've cycled a fair number of sportives and other cycle events and wanted to say how well organised it was. Event pack, maps, food stops, support etc - all excellent. The marshalling, with a smiling marshall on every turn was exceptional (having gone off course on other events ;-). I look forward to doing another event in the future." W. C.
