Well the 20th Bucks Off Road Sportive is over - not sure if I am getting too old for this but it did seem a lot harder work getting all the routes marked than in previous years but as always some positive feedback, plenty of riders and even better some sunshine on the day made the efforts worthwhile. Even better I have not had one single complaint from other users of the tracks which is a first so a big thank you for observing the etiquette laid down on the pre ride instructions and in the riders briefing.

As always an odd arrow had been taken down and one moved round which is a pain but not a lot we can do about this as we do check the arrows the preceding day and it is not practicable to manage to pre ride all 3 distances on the Sunday.

A lot of people liked the routes especially the 40km route which went out further than normal and also some of the new tracks on the 120km route so a big thanks to route guru Wayne Cook for finding these some that I had never ridden.

I think our events represent very good value for money, for less than half the price of a number of other off road sportives you get longer distances to choose from, a free drink at the bar, an event memento as well as the feed stations and support of a sag wagon which was once again required this year.

In respect of next years event it looks like we will be back on next year, as we always promote the event on an anniversary date the date will be May 12th.

So now I have to sweet talk Wayne into finding some more new tracks for next year.
However 1st on the agenda will be our sister event the Bucks Road Sportive to be held on the 24th February.

Enjoy your riding and look forward to seeing everyone next year.
