Great ride, many thanks. Very well organised, signposting was clear and safe, water points were appreciated, home cooked food was delicious, goody bag had loads of useful stuff, great humour, friendly fellow riders, great route in lovely countryside and quiet roads, and it only took me about three days to recover! My son and I loved it.
