Davina's Big Sussex Bike Ride testimonials

Well done and thank you @actionevents and @davinamccall for such a well organised event - a beautiful cycle route and such a friendly atmosphere. I will definitely be back next year...such a great cause @action_medical_research - a charity close to my heart as I work as neonatal nurse caring for premature and sick babies.

What a fabulous ride - beautiful countryside, lovely weather and just the right amount of climbing for the distance. Thank you!

I just thought the whole experience was rather wonderful. I had been meaning to take part for the last couple of years, but other things cropped up, but this year was just right. Although I 'only' took part in the Cool Route, I found it a wonderful experience, mixing with all the cyclists and catching up with friends. The venue was spectacular, the layout clear and well planned and the overall organisation was just meticulous, and the volunteers really friendly and helpful, and of course Davina was inspirational. I am just about to turn 70 and haven't done anything like this for years, and this not only turned back the clock for me but gave me real encouragement for the future. Loved the course too and raised some good money for your excellent charity. Perhaps I will try the Classic next year. Thankyou so much. A really life-affirming day.

Hi, I'd like to say a big thanks to the amazing bicycle repair main who luckily for me had an emergency gear hanger as I snapped mine going up Gun Hill. Without him my race would have been run and I'd have missed out on a great ride.

As always a wonderful organised event, so good to see Davina, such a great Ambassador for ladies cycling. A wonderful location at the East Sussex golf course plus the great lunch at return of your ride. Great cycling routes . The volunteers are so friendly and efficient. I fully recommend this cycling event. Thanks to all.

Amazing day - came out with 8 of my fellow Tuff Fitty Triathlon Club ladies and we had a great time! Great course, not too much traffic and fab feed stops with proper food lol! It was my second year and it won't be my last :)

Hi, I'd like to say a big thank you to the ride mechanic who luckily for me had an emergency rear derailer hanger as I snapped mine going up gun hill. Without him I never would have completed the ride.
I thought the ride was really well organised and will be back next year.

My first cycling challenge and I picked this ride because I live in Sussex and it looked a really lovely route. Davina was fabulous, she was just another rider mixing in around us all, brilliantly supportive, looking out for those who were struggling and at one point she actually stopped the traffic and helped my sister onto and off round-a-bout - most of the route is away from busy roads but this one we had to cross. But hey, what a trill to actually ride alongside Davina! The course was amazing, I did the full 68 miles and enjoyed every moment, one or two tricky hills but the other cyclists all came together and helped push up the hills together. Really lovely day, made a lot of new friends and we all met up at the finish line and celebrated our achievements with our families. Big thx to Davina

Just wanted to say thank you so much for putting on such a fabulous ride. The route was challenging, well marked and the volunteers were absolutely amazing. Sadly the weather was out of your control, but you made the best of it. Thank you for being so caring, welcoming and organised - brilliant venue - perfect day! Thank you - we will be back once again next year
