Great route and as I had no idea where I was I appreciated the great signage 👍🏻⬅️⬆️➡️
Beautiful ride, thanks guys and girls. Now if you could just iron out some if the hills for next year 😂
Great event and thanks for organising the weather as well!😄☀️ Will certainly be back for a 3rd time next year 👍👍
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.
First Sportive complete.@BostinRide was amazing. Amazing route, amazing views in the Peak District & amazed I did it. 65 miles in 4.5 hours.
I rode the event in 2017 and thought it was so good I came back for more in 2018 and will ride it again 2019. I never usually ride the same sportive twice but the route is exceptional. Looking forward to sampling some of the other Bostin Ride offerings in 2019 as well.
Great Sportive will be back again next year 🚴♀️👍
The Organisers and Volunteers of Bostin ride have made my 2018 sportive's really memorable. The best 4 rides with a mixture of some good hills, I like the hills �.
Routes well sign posted, feed stations well stocked, great atmosphere from other cyclists and the Bostin Ride team. I will see you next year. Can't wait to see you in 2019, would highly recommend to everyone. ��
Really well organised event. The marshals were really helpful when I had a mechanical problem with my bike - thank you!
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.
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.
Another great sportive. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Can't wait to do them again next year.
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 😉
It's been a great day thanks, really enjoyed it 😀
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.
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
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!
Great day, loved the route and the samosas at the feed stations were the best. My 12 year old lad bagged his first 100k. Thank you all.
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 😁
Good route, well organised, signing was excellent given the other sportives on the road today. The hot dog at the end is always welcome.
