“Not a bad time 1hr 39m @Samsride2015 will be doing the 50 miler next time”

“Great ride in all regards - thank you. Signage was excellent, food fantastic and quality of riders involved excellent. My fav 100m sportive to date!”

“Just like to say a huge thank you for such a great day yesterday on the 100 Mile sportive. It was extremely well organised and the atmosphere was so good. Met a lot of friendly people while out on the ride. Also I hope that a lot of money was raised for a very worthy cause.”

“Many thanks for an excellent day out, we did the 50 ( also cycled 8 miles each way, to and from start). A most inclusive event for all distances and one of the friendliest rides I have done”

“A really great ride yesterday and I really congratulate you all. I have ridden Sportives for years and this was a lovely relaxed well organised event. (Riding time, less stops, 16.22 mph)”

“Very many thanks for staging such an enjoyable event for us all yesterday. Nothing can beat beautiful Hampshire, delicious cakes, helping raise funds for such a worthy charity and peddling a bit. All beautifully organised”

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday's event. It was brilliantly organised from start to finish and also every step of the way. I'm not a very confident cyclist having only done one other charity ride in France but the directions and support and organisation made it very very enjoyable. Really hope you made a ton of money for the charity - you and they deserve it. I might even do another one! Thanks again”

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday. It was my first ever Sportive/Cycling event. As a newcomer to the sport, everyone was so friendly, riders and volunteers alike! My regular sport could learn a lot! The 50 mile route was fantastic, lovely country roads with some challenging climbs. If I'm still in the country next year I'll definitely look to do it again. Thanks”

“Just a brief note to thank all the Team who organised and helped with such an enjoyable ride yesterday, which included such a warm welcome, well organised reception, beautiful route, helpful marshals, delicious lunch and a friendly farewell - a memorable day! Thanks again”

“Thanks for a great time today, I did the 50 mile as my first sportive and really enjoyed it. I got lost on the way back and ended up doing an extra 6 miles :-) I can take responsibility for my small detour, I was riding with another cyclist, didn't realise until too late he wasn't talking part in Sam's ride, we got to 50 miles but i didn't see the finish, when i mentioned this and he looked puzzled it dawned on me what had happened and by that point we had gone off course! Thanks again, loved it, next year will return for the 100 mile option”

“Again I would like to say how amazing yesterday was - the organisation was absolutely faultless. We had a great time - nothing could have been better”

“Please pass on huge thanks to all who had a hand in making it such a success. Food yummy, bar staff charming, fabulous tyre pumper upper man, marshals, fig rolls all wonderful”

“Great event you organised today, well done. I really enjoyed it and you managed to get fantastic support for the Charity”

“Just to say thank you for a brilliant ride today (50 miles) lovely route with very little traffic, good scenery and well signed and marshalled. Really enjoyed the day. Thank you to all the volunteers who gave up their time to make this such a successful ride”

“Just a note to thank you all for an extremely well organised event. Very professional, friendly and fun. I completed the 50 miles and raised £420 for such a good cause”

“Just finished the sporty 50 ride and wanted to say well done on putting on a first class day. The day was really well organised; cheerful volunteers, good food stops, well sign posted, good meal at the finish, fantastic route with very little traffic. I think a couple of signs had gone missing in Abbots Ann but the Garmin file kept me on course and I was able to guide some fellow riders back to the finish. Great ride, I'll be back next year”

"Excellent support and marshals, very friendly and good food!"

“Please pass on huge thanks to all who had a hand in making it such a success. Food yummy, bar staff charming, fabulous tyre pumper upper man, marshals, fig rolls all wonderful”

“Thank you for a fantastic day yesterday. Really well organised and very special with all the home made touches - chocolate brownies, stew at the end etc. Hope you made loads of dosh for an excellent cause”

“A heartfelt thanks for a very successful day on Sunday. I have had the event in my sights for some time as my first ever bike challenge and it did not fail to disappoint. You had worked so hard and the organisation, reassuring emails, logistics on the day were all excellent.

How wonderful to raise so much money for such a good cause - in a way that was in itself a reflection of the best advice for anyone who might be feeling low; exercise and exposure to the beautiful Hants countryside”

“I thought it was great fun….delicious snacks at our pitstop and lovely friendly route guides who tactfully stood over the pot holes which I could easily have peddled into!”

“Just to say a big thank you for a brilliantly organised event. Great route, great signage, quick sign on, lots of facilities. And a special thank you to all the marshals who were there to look after us. And another special thanks to all at the two feed stations. To get cheese or ham rolls, flapjacks, cake, tea, coffee was really welcome as were the big smiles and the encouragement”

“Great 100miles!! Fantastic route, thank you”

"This was my 1st organised cycle and although some tough hills I completed the 50 miles and really enjoyed it. Well organised and people just so friendly. Hopefully will do again next year”

“Complements to the marshals who were exceptionally professional, assisting at busy junctions and providing sound, early directions. The staff at the feeding stations were helpful, courteous, generous and friendly. This was a very well run and enjoyable event with challenging up hills and great weather, maybe next time turn down the headwind in the exposed areas!”

“A very enjoyable & well organised event, looking forward to next year already”

“ Great event! As mentioned the feed stations were spot on great selection of food and drinks. Well staffed with cheerful friendly attitudes, had a great day. Thank you all who made it happen.”
