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!


London To Paris in three days was a great experiance. Tought few days but well worth it. Thanks again support crew who helped make this challenge ! I'll be back for more.

I really enjoyed the Slepe Morning Sportive – really well organised and with a fantastic break stop. I had no problems with signing in, the stewards were really friendly and the route was well marked.
