Firstly thank you for the amazing weather! What a day. I could have cycled all day, best days cycling this year… Secondly, a fabulous sportive – I’ve done this before and thought the organisation and support were sublime. Even when the volunteers ran out of coffee and milk at the first feed station they were so happy and supportive – i don’t think anyone minded. Chapeau to putting on an amazing event – the atmosphere was great and what I really loved was how supportive and chatty other riders were. Please take time to bask in the glory of a fabulous day, sip some of those beers and eat all the leftover energy gels and I look forward to doing it again. Hoping you can replicate your negotiation with the weather gods again!!
