The Slepe Morning Sportive ticked all the boxes: well organised, friendly, lovely route, good directional signs, the best food stop ever, plus a goody bag! Brilliant, can’t wait for the next one!

Kate Read

The Slepe Morning Sportive was a really good event – excellent signposting, well-stocked feed station with good variety, and engaging staff – I would certainly try other events run by Long Leg Tours.

John Hardwick

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!
