York 100 testimonials

What a shame the longer course couldn't be used. However, the shorter option still provided a great day out, and some cheeky climbs. Well organised, well signed. Thanks to all the team who made it possible

I'd just like to say Thankyou for a great event good feed stations good signage and bloody big hills haha.
69 miles is the furthest I've ever ridden and I'm pretty chuffed to be honest.
My brother and his son did it with me and we all loved it.
Thanks again

Great event, really challenging and safe route.
Feed stations were perfectly placed.
I will 100% be signing up to the ride next year.

I got a puncture during a climb, and as soon as I had my wheel off the recovery van was driving past.
Quickest puncture repair ever, get that guy in a F1 team!

This is the first sportive my husband and i have ever done, we both started cycling again earlier this year to get fit and lose weight and this was the ideal opportunity to keep us motivated, whilst raising money for a good cause. The route was challenging due to our current level of fitness but we were proud to finish the course even though we were last. There were two good feed stations, the lunch station had lots of variety and was well stocked, all the volunteers were lovely and very helpful and friendly. There was lots of clear signage along the route, giving clear directions and the scenery along the way was lovely. There was a good atmosphere and all the other cyclists were very friendly and encouraged us along the way. We are already thinking about signing up for next year's York 100 to try and get around the route a little faster.

I took part in the ride in 2015. I don't know why but the ride this year seemed to be so much harder. Great fun through, delighted to finish.

A great ride - it was a shame the signs had been meddled with at the end which resulted in an additional 8 miles and a place drop from 3rd to 26th

My favourite sportive, just filled the survey in and couldn't really think of any way to improve it - very well organised and friendly. Well done to all concerned!
