Bot disappointed by the food available at the end, really fancied a bacon sandwich or something savoury and there was only sweet stuff or vegan stuff available

No crew at Huish Episcopi Feed Station. Apart from that well organised and sign posted. Lovely route avoiding main roads. Good job.

A bit hillier than I expected but all very manageable. Really enjoyed the day, everyone was friendly. I did it alone as a fairly novice rider so enjoyed riding knowing help was just a phone call away.

I'm no sportive expert but the atmosphere was relaxed, but not brilliant.
Well signposted, good feed stations, and a nice route.
An extra 10k would be good (on the medium route), chip timing, and maybe some photography would be a great addition, but overall we had a good day on the Somerset levels. Thankyou

Great event to do my first 100 miler!

Any other notes?

No chip timing and some of the signage could have been a little before the turns rather than on them, but otherwise an excellent event with very well stocked feed stations.

Good route with good feed stops.

Any other notes?

Signage was good in earlier part of route(medium route) but without my mates Garmin I would have got lost in late part of the route. A lot of beginners and older guys like me (79) don't have the dosh for such expensive items, and in my case I wouldn't know how to use it, so a well signed route is something I always look for. Good to have hot drinks available on such a cold day, and very important in early season rides. Also, glad to see that next year you have taken my mates idea to make over 60 miles !!!

An excellent route and good signage.

Any other notes?

I would have like a distance around the 70m mark - 56 too short and 110 too long for me at this stage.

As well as chalk arrows at junctions, how about single chalk cross 50m down the wrong road/s?

Thanks, a good day.
