I didn't enjoy the turning into Dunkeswell village hall and witnessed someone who came a cropper here. For next year suggest a different 2nd feed station

Very well organised event, not too hilly with fast flowing roads.

Any other notes?

This is my third TF and it remains one of my favourites. I did the Wellington as a one off and if I had a criticism I would say the additional 40 miles weren't quite as flowing(but only in places) but a lot of that was probably me being tired! I really liked the opportunity to sign up early and save a few pounds. Excellent food stops with plenty for everyone. Thank you for a great day and keep up the good work.

Some of the hills are just mean! Perhaps a little too challenging for most. If the majority have to get off and walk the balance might be slightly wrong.

Any other notes?

Amazing food at the first feedstation (the 2nd was good too). Lovely to have free hot drinks. On the whole everyone very friendly esp the marshalls & feed station ladies (a few testosterone overloaded male cyclists as always). Thank you for a great ride, despite the torrential rain & flooded roads at one point!

Any other notes?

Very The marshall standing at the route 'split' was easily visible which made the junction and decision easier to manage. The Bay Cycles staff were brilliant, outstanding. They gave myself and my friend (who had come off bike) a quick repair and also a lift back to Taunton raceourse. Also medic person was helpful, cheerful. We will probably be back for more next year.

My first sportive, Dakota, pictureque and with pretty tough climbs, some I wasnt expecting. It was quite tough.

Any other notes?

The main road (A road sections) were tiresome and dull, an endless slog to be honest,
The food stop excellent, the people everywhere fantastic especially the marshals and reception and at the end, the atmosphere lovely,
Thank you all, it was fun but harder than I expected, perhaps I should have used a larger cassette!

Better than wiggle!

Any other notes?

Great event, much better organised than the wiggle events.

Pros:
- Good signage
- Great quality medal (and appropriate colour for category too)
- Best feed stops at any sportive, nice one!
- Great to have an instant time print out (Wiggle make you wait for hours!)

Cons:
- No energy drink at the start line to fill up bottles.
- Goody bag a little 'light'
- Sportive photo are the "goto guys" but are so expensive for riders... why not do this yourselves?

Thanks!

Excellent Event

Any other notes?

The feed stations were amazing - probably the best I have experienced so far. All marshalls and helpers were extremely helpful - nothing was too much for any of them to deal with. I did almost ride straight past the last feed station on the 74 mile route so maybe a marshall could be there to signal a feed station as had head down and missed the sign. Overall a fantastic event and day and will definitely return to have another go next year.

Any other notes?

Taunton Racecourse is an ideal starting point with all the facilities you need. Parking was excellent. Catering was good even if the coffee was vastly overpriced. The course had a good mixture of flat , undulating and a couple of challenging hills. The route was interesting and well marked / marshalled.
Food stations were absolutely excellent.
Finally the medal is really impressive. Great design.

Any other notes?

The food stations were excellent, but on arrival no refreshments or food unless you paid for them was a low point,
Leaving early to get to the start point a bit of pastry and a coffee would of helped.
However will be doing this event next year.

Very happy with the whole event, even the weather was reasonable. Some of the roads felt a bit corrugated, but can't blame Just Events for that!

Understanding nothing about cycling or events, it went like clock work. Staff helpful in all areas of the event. Good signs.....and hills!! Before now I thought that cycling was a little clicky, how wrong I was. Good effort guys, job well done.
