In short: Well organized but a bit wet In full: And, of course, the organizers can't do anything about the weather. Other than that: very well organized, great support from the marshalls - THANK YOU to them for braving the weather. The course is not particularly scenic, and today it was rather slippy in places, but apart from one short incline really quite fast. Lovely tea and cake at the finish - and I always like a T-shirt!

In short: Good race, well-organised and all the important things done well. In full: I don't know why but I find this course never brings out the best in me. Perhaps too many twists and turns and not quite as flat as you expect. The spectators looked miserable in the cold and the rain. Well done to the marshalls and officials for being out in that!

In short: Shame about the weather! In full: Freezing cold, wet and muddy - but made up for by cheery and good marshalling. Difficult to PB as I couldn't overtake on the narrow footpaths (and was worried about slipping on the muddy grass!) but didn't do too badly considering. Array of cakes at the end made it all worthwhile! Date of review: November 30, 2008
In short: Nice rice, not sure about the stretch along the A4 though! In full: I did enjoy it in parts but didn't enjoy going around again, that was a bit boring. Also the stretch along the A4 wasn't very nice. However, the marshals were nice and the atmospher was quite good and it was well organised. Date of review: January 17, 2008
In short: Well organised and friendly In full: Well organised, started on time, very friendly. Plenty of space to change in the school and efficient bag storage. 2 flat laps around the village, although overtaking tricky in places on narrow paths. Would definitely do it again.
