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!
It's been a great day thanks, really enjoyed it 😀
Thanks Bostin great sportive
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!
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!
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 🚴♀️💪🏻
First time on this route and loved. Well organised and very friendly event helpers/volunteers. Will definitely be back next year 👍
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!
Awesome day well organised, loved everything about all 4 of your rides 👍.
Will definitely be riding with you 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!!
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 😁
What an amazing day. Louis Spence made my day! Thank you !
Thanks for another fabulous event. Can't fault it yet again. 3 down , 1 to go
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!
Really well organised event. The marshals were really helpful when I had a mechanical problem with my bike - thank you!
Yes a massive thank you, my husband did this for the 1st & said he has never been to such a well organised race x
Fantastic days riding thanks to all the organisers who work hard to make the bostin rides such a success
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.
Great route guys
Hot dogs bloody lovely, post ride to quell that essential sugary mush in the gut👌
Very well organised, good locations with easy parking, easy registration and well marked routes. Good feedstops and a finishers medal into the bargain. Photography on course, so what's not to like? Thoroughly enjoyable sportives.
