“I would like to say thanks for organising a brilliant event in some of the best countryside and scenery in the UK. I’ve cycled in a lot of Sportives and I can honestly say; Le Petite Depart was the best for food stops (pies and bacon rolls wow) organisation and friendly hospitality and even more food at the end.”

“We thought that we should let you know how much we enjoyed this day. My wife rode her first event in the recreational ride and I did the Sportive.   I have ridden in many cycle events one of which being in Belgium. I can honestly say that this event was by far the best organised event I have entered. The atmosphere and sense of community spirit was excellent. The feed stations were absolutely fabulous. I can not express strongly enough that you guys did a great job.  In one word…. BRILLIANT!!! “
