I was so impressed by every aspect of this event and just wanted to say a huge thank-you to all of those involved - the Marshalls, the motorcyclists, the starters, the welcome committee at the finish, the local venues for refreshments and all of the countless and unseen volunteers that put this event together and made it such a magnificent day.

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the Norwich bike ride. The route was well planned out and signposted, refreshments were plentiful and all volunteers incredibly friendly and helpful. Thank you very much for organising such a wonderful event, I will be sure to sign up for next year's! E.B

Thank you for a fantastically well organised event last weekend. This is the first sportive I've taken part in since lockdown in March and I think you and the team did an excellent job. I look forward to riding with you at one of your future events. Mark L
