    Possibly the worst Sportive I have ever been on. I know it was their first year but it was a real disappointment for our little group of riders. The registration process was chaotic, even though we had pre-registered via the net. We still had to suffer two long queues, that ran parallel to each other. The signing for the 80 mile route was really poor and resulted in us (and many other riders we came across) taking wrong turns or missing turns we should have taken. We ended up doing 85 miles on the 80 mile route! There didn’t seem to be many doing the longer route and by the time we got back there was no food left and no goodie bags either. There didn’t seem to be too many organisers about either. Having said all that the scenery was pretty good at times and although there were no terror hills there was plenty of climbing. All in all though we headed home to Edinburgh feeling really hard done by. We shan’t be returning for 2013.
