A brutal day on the bike on the gold route, character building at its best with the hills, wind and rain but a fantastic event! Marshals were brilliant, signage fab and a relief to see you all still there when we finally crossed that line. Please pass on our thanks to everyone 🚴♀️💪🏻
Great day well supported by the cyclists from near and far, staff /volunteers did a brilliant job serving food marshalling the course etc... Our first Bostin ride will ride with you again thanks!
Rode the 120k Vyrnwy Velo yesterday, fabulous route on smooth quiet roads, good signage, loved it.
Bostin' by name Bostin by nature. Thanks for an awesome event. Thanks to everyone who helped stage it. Hopefully you will do it again next year😉😉
Well you were my 1st sportive and won't be my last. And I'll certainly be looking to do another bostinride event. Altho I only did the baby 37 miler I was thrilled to be 1st finisher (I know it's not a race but even so I was dead chuffed). Might see if can find time with the boss aka Mrs B to do the autumn peak classic silver race... better get some more miles under my saddle then... thanks for a well organised great fun event!
I did the silver route and really enjoyed it, nice roads superb scenery and some naughty hills, congrats to the route planner probably the best sportive I've ridden so far, well done see you on the next one.
Thanks for another fabulous event. Can't fault it yet again. 3 down , 1 to go
Another great event!... Thanks. Looking forward to Sportives next year!... Please keep up the good work
Best Sportive I have ridden for a good long while! Lovely route/people/atmosphere. If you haven't done a Bostin ride yet, you really should! ...
Hi, I rode your event today and just wanted to say what an enjoyable event it was. I don't know that part of the country and so was looking forward to riding new roads and taking in new scenery. Wow what a picturesque ride through some beautiful countryside and pretty villages. The event was well organised, well marked and a friendly crowd too out on the roads. Thank you and hopefully I'll ride the event again next year..
Beautiful ride, thanks guys and girls. Now if you could just iron out some if the hills for next year 😂
Huge thanks to all the organisers and volunteers for their smiles and words of encouragement, they made the ride good fun.
Really enjoyed the Gold route, definitely see you in June. The views were amazing today. One of my favourite sportives. Well done to all involved, fab day. 😃
Thanks for organising another great event. Perfect
Leg killing hills but well worth it when at the top for those views...just wish i had my phone on me so i could of taken some pics! Fantastic well organised day many thanks to all involved 👏👍
Great Sportive will be back again next year 🚴♀️👍
Just a quick note to say thanks for a great Sportive.
This is the first time I have done one of the Bostin’ Rides and I thought the route was a joy and the organisation and way marking were excellent. It’s a shame there were not more entries but there were quite a few other events taking place locally.
Hopefully things will be better for your next one - I’m definitely looking forward to going around the other way next spring!
Fantastic event thanks guys. Great route and on-route support, fab start venue, event organisation and way-marking... The excellent feed stations were just what we needed to see us through with all those hills and gusty winds!
What a great sportive loved every minute of it and awesome atmosphere. Roll on the next one #BostinChase
Great job by all. Everyone involved was friendly and helpful, route signs were well placed, and the refreshments were spot on.
Did gold route, very tough especially over the moors (weather didn't help) shame you couldn't add a few more miles to hit the 100 mark, guessing it's the trend in using kilometres, but very well organised event. Big shout out to the 2 lads on water stop duty, really thought they were joking about how hard the next bit was!
Hello, just wanted to say thanks for organising this sportive, it was my first and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Not a bad return for an old fella' beating some of the young bucks!!
Hopefully see you next year for the Spring one
What an amazing day. Louis Spence made my day! Thank you !
The gold route was absolutely superb guys. Really enjoyed it and I ride a lot.
Cracking route and once again....hot dog to die for 😁😁
Another fabulous day, thanks very much, always friendly and so well organised. See you at the Peaks 🚴♂️
Hello, just did the Bostin Peaks Sportive, my second sportive I also did the Brewood in June. Just wanted to express my appreciation to all staff involved, just like the Brewood it was professionally organised and superbly signposted, the rest stops are a life saver, thanks again, hopefully I'll be back for more
Cracking day thank you.
I rode the silver route yesterday and just wanted to say a big thank you to the marshals, stewards and people manning the feed stations. Without exception a friendly, helpful bunch and that's much appreciated.
The route itself was great - some beautiful scenery and a really good mix of hills and descents. We were blessed with decent weather too!
The event was really well organised, signposting was perfect...
Really nice route through some very scenic parts of the countryside, and well organised. Thanks to the marshalls and those manning the feed stations, and thanks to the riders from Nova and Newport who gave me a bit of a tow 😉
Thank you for a really well organised event today, signage and feed stations were excellent. I'll definitely be back for more in the future!
Really enjoyed today's ride, great route, climbs and hot dog at the end. Big thank you to the folks at the water station by Bala lake, couldn't have made it back without their cable ties holding my saddle on!
Great day - great organisation AGAIN..! Well done all involved. See you at the next one 😁
A big thanks to all involved in supporting the Sportive today.
Us 7 from Mold were on our first Bostin ride and really enjoyed the route.
The hot dog at the end was scrummy.
Was a great event. Really well organised as always. Good route, very clear signage too. Looking forward to #bostinvyrnwy
Great ride on a lovely day, my second year on the Bronze route maybe one day I'll attempt silver! thanks @BostinRide #VyrnwyVelo
From start to finish such a well organised event . Excellent in every way from registration, pre bike maintenace support, ease of parking, the ride itself the course ( testing and tough but so scenic), marshalls and signs, post ride refreshments all organised in a thorough but relaxed professional way.. Oh and the weather always an added plus !
A huge thank you to all involved for your hard work.
First Sportive complete.@BostinRide was amazing. Amazing route, amazing views in the Peak District & amazed I did it. 65 miles in 4.5 hours.
Thanks Bostin great sportive
Rode the Bronze route. Cheeky wee climb to begin just after the start was a bit of a surprise, got the lungs and legs going. Cracking route with lovely lanes and scenery. Just enough hills and climbs for my poor conditioning, the one at Butterley? nearly had me getting off, but made it with a bit of cursing. It was my mates first sportive and he really enjoyed it. I hope this becomes a more popular ride as the organisers and volunteers did a cracking job. Thanks and i will see you again in spring.
Yes a massive thank you, my husband did this for the 1st & said he has never been to such a well organised race x
Well done everyone involved, we had a great time.
Thanks for an excellent event, a really challenging Gold route. Really well organised, very good route signs, great food. See you for the Brewood and Newport rides .
Really enjoyed the ride. Thank you to all who organised the event, the the marshal's and the guys serving food.
Looking forward to the next one 😁
Great event and thanks for organising the weather as well!😄☀️ Will certainly be back for a 3rd time next year 👍👍
Excellent day. A few other organisers should take note..! Well done to the riders and big thanks to all the Bostin organisers and support team.
Loved it.... but "the odd challenging hill" that was an understatement... but what an achievement.... I can now say I conquered it.... thank you. 😊
Really enjoyable and well organised event. Thanks to all who gave up their time to put it on. Hot dogs were a highlight, the hills a lowlight!
Great route guys
Hot dogs bloody lovely, post ride to quell that essential sugary mush in the gut👌
Brilliant event, thanks to all the organisers and marshalls. Spot on with every part of the event from the registration through to the finish. I love the availability of my favourite drink at the event....tea...nothing else does it for me. Everyone was so helpful and friendly, a big thank you.
Great event!... Already booked Newport .... Hopefully I won't need the broom wagon to pick me after a 1st ever mechanical after 72 miles! Thanks Ian. .... Would highly recommend Bostin' Events to friends, great route, fantastic feed stations & hot drinks..... Hotdog too!... GREAT EVENT
Really well organised event. The marshals were really helpful when I had a mechanical problem with my bike - thank you!
Great ride out and great support. Thanks a lot and see you for the next one.
Superb event today. Challenging gold route. Awesome scenery. Faultless signage. Good feed stations and not forgetting those that organised. Thank you.
Another great sportive. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Can't wait to do them again next year.
Another fantastic day. So friendly. Thanks everyone
Fantastic days riding thanks to all the organisers who work hard to make the bostin rides such a success
First time on this route and loved. Well organised and very friendly event helpers/volunteers. Will definitely be back next year 👍
Second year of doing the gold route and it just keeps getting better! Fantastic well organised day and will defo be doing it again next year...even if it is a 6 hour round trip from yorkshire!!
Very well organised, everyone smiling and aching at the finish. Roll on next year, better prepared 😎
Excellent day again folks. We’ll be back 😀
Done plenty of sportives and today's was my favourite. Lovely route, great organisation, well stocked feed station. Can't wait to do some more of your rides 😁
Superb route, great food and super slick organisation! Thanks guys from team Belfast, we loved it!
Thank you to everyone who help organise and support this event take a well earned day off. Just a shame I was not up to the gold route today managed to get around the silver just
Great ride guys. Really enjoyed.
It's been a great day thanks, really enjoyed it 😀
Great day, very well organised
Great views on the gold route at the #VyrnwyVelo today. Thanks for a really well organised ride!
Good route, well organised, signing was excellent given the other sportives on the road today. The hot dog at the end is always welcome.
Awesome day well organised, loved everything about all 4 of your rides 👍.
Will definitely be riding with you next year.
Thanks for the great day guys !! Was my second event today hence being scared to go in the upper classes, so I stuck to bronze, everyone that was riding was brilliant, and it was a super duper organised day, the staff did a great job!! Thanks very much ! 😀
Ace Bostin, looking forward to next year already 💪💪🚴♂️🚴♂️🏁🏁🏁
Absolutely amazing day, I’m shattered now, with a sore bum!😂😂😂
See you at the next one.💪💪🏁💪
Yeh another great event. Thank you so much. All 4 this year have been so well organised and great fun
Superb day. Well organised! Marshals were brill 👍🚲
I had a great day. Did the silver route. Very well organised event. Stunning views & some interesting climbs !!! Many thanks.
Another fantastic event. Always feel welcome by everyone involved. Really enjoyed the route and some great climbs. Looking forward to the next one!! 😀😀
Did the Gold route, was tough with the wind. A fantastic day and well organised, good signage, feed station's brilliant and love the medal. I have done all your events so far this year see you next month.
Great day out. Tough challenge on the 150km but feels good to have done it. Thanks guys.
An Epic ride with good friends . We did the gold route and the route signage was perfect ! Never a shadow of a doubt where to go. All marshals and people running event were friendly and helpful . We were a little concerned that everyone would have packed up and gone home as due to mechanicals and some slightly character building weather time was getting on when we finished. But we got a cheer from the three girls handing out the medals (love a bit of bling) and a warm welcome in the refreshments area . If Carlsberg did hotdogs ....... Thank you and keep doing exactly what your doing , just get the weather sorted 😂
Really excellent event with fab weather. Only made even more memorable by riding and chatting for a good distance with a few celebs (Darren Gough, Austin Healey and Amy Williams).
Thanks to all involved for making this such a fantastic Sportive, 2nd time I've done it, love the gold route, worth all the climbs!! for the amazing views and great descents.
Look forward to next years. :-)) 🚵🏼🚵🏼🚴🏽
Great route again, well done Bostin' Rides and thank you for organising these
Really well organised event. Enjoyable day.
Thanks for another great route, see you next year 🚲
@BostinRide awesome event and great atmosphere #BostinChase
Great day and a well organised event. All of the staff do Bostin proud. Please pass on my thanks to all for giving up your days to make ride days fantastic
