It can be intimidating for a newbie (like me) to take part in something like this, everyone seems so ‘proper’ with all the kit, fancy bikes, cleats and all the lycra BUT don’t let that put you off at all. Myself and my partner took part in the 35 mile route in our tracksuits and trainers with our heavy bikes and optimistic attitude. Upon arrival we realised we needn’t be feeling out of place as everybody was very kind and friendly. The route was so well signposted, even the potholes were pointed out! The ride was fun and enjoyable and the flapjack at the feed stop was a highlight. Everyone has to start somewhere.
This was my first ever sportive and what a great day out. I felt that the event was well organised and I made the medium circuit in good time finding the signs well placed. The route was brilliant and I hope to take part in more of these events.
my first time age 36 female! LOVED IT ….SO WELL ORGANISED! THE MOST AMAZING ROUTE!
An absolutely fantastic day out. The route is mostly flat or gently undulating with great road surfaces and almost no cars so you can really push the speed. Organisation is superb, registration was very quick, the route extremely well marked, and the hosts all very friendly. Best of all was the stunning scenery, tiny country lanes and beautiful villages. Thank you SportiveUK!
Thank you SportiveUK this was my first sportive and what a great day you gave us. Okay so it was a bit cold at 0c to start but once on our way we soon warmed up. I did the medium route as it was my first, Loved it great route, great signage, Great host’s. Thank you look forward to doing the next one. Deano Newman

Great ride, well thought out quiet route, with plenty of swoops to sort out these old legs!
Great route, well organised sportive. Excellent feed stations with an abundance of good energy food. The route was on good quiet roads with a few good challenging hills. I did 72mile route
I had a great day out on my bike: Great course that was well sign posted, well informed at the start of potential issues (road surfaces etc.). Sign on was easy. Pitstops were well spaced and looked well stocked (although I only spent 30 seconds at two of them to refill bottles!).
Herts Easter Egg Hunt was great, you provided some excellent weather too!
I’ve done a lot of sportives but this one was by far the best. Sign on was smooth, the briefing was good and the route was incredible well sign posted, I don’t think it would be possible for anyone to go wrong. There was a good selection of tasty treats at the feed stops. I’ll definitely be attending another event.
