Rider Comments on the Route

  • Kevin Smith Sunday 26th July
  • Sarah Brown Sunday 26th June
  • Nigel Pawson Saturday 18th June The good points were that the numbers were low, so that we could use the circuit at speed, the bad points were weather based - rain and wind, but that's not the organisers' or leaders' fault. Really glad to have been able to experience this circuit
