Davina's Big Sussex Bike Ride testimonials
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

Firstly thank you to all volunteers and staff who make this a wonderful event to attend. Just settling into my ride I encountered a puncture!!.so many of our cyclists asked if all was ok? and some stopped..I replied 'yes thank you .. Please do carry on with your ride'..THANK YOU ALL for asking.. I became soaked, cold,back ache and cold fingers!!..I managed a small amount of air into the tyre.. On arriving at the wonderful feed station, it was lovely to have a decent hot cup of tea and snacks. I asked for help to pump up my tyre!!!.. There was a great response!!.. So a BIG THANK YOU ,to the young lady who pumped up my tyre (using a mini pump)..to a good psi that enabled me to continue my ride.. Hope to attend next year to complete the champion route.. X
Back for my second year (2015 - Classic) 2016 - Champion. Yet again an AMAZING event even better. I would personally agian like to thank Davina and all of the event staff and the staff at the East Sussex National golf club, all so helpful and supportive from registration to hanging my medal. This year managed to get my picture with Davina at the start. Shame about the weather. See you in 2017. Big personal thanks to my wife Tina for all her support as my director sportive.
