I thought the Slepe Morning Sportive was very well organised. The route marking left no doubt about where to go and it was a decent route and kept us off main roads most of the time. The food stop was excellent, the checking in was easy and the briefing for the start was magnificent. Good job all round!

Philip

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.
