Some responses which are represetative of the feedback we consistently receive following each running of the event:

Excellent, if tough, event yesterday; thank you.

Hi there - I'm looking to join a club and was really struck by how friendly the welcome was at yesterday's May Flyer.
Thank you for organising once again the splendid May Flyer sportive. I enjoyed it a lot and the route is magnificent. Full marks too for the road markings – there was never a moment’s uncertainty about the route, the long one anyway.
Wanted to thank you for a fabulous event this weekend! Everything was brilliantly organised and the route was fantastic!
Thanks for organising a great event. The food at the end was particularly good.
Martin Banfield
This was an excellent event. The food stops and the marshalling were out of this world.
Mark Patterson
Thanks for an awesome sportive.
Sarah Tupman
May I start by saying what a great event SWRC put on yesterday. The weather also behaved itself and the feed station and post ride lunch was the best ever.
Ray Cockle
Really enjoyed the ride yesterday - only my second ever Sportive, so still getting to grips with it all.
Paul Sidwell
Can I just start by saying how much I really enjoy this event, this is the 5th time of doing it, and my husband Ray and I (who emailed you yesterday) missed last year. We think the new venue is really good as it is so much more spacious. The short course itself is lovely, I think we might be tempted to do the long one next year for a change as a friend
we met at the hall afterwards said it is a lovely route too. I loved the course marking at the junction of the B2130 where you do a right and another quick right, which marking on the road before the junction was really clear and I can’t remember seeing that before but know to watch out for that junction. I too will add my thanks for the whole organisation, the marshals out on the course at the strategic points and last but not least the fantastic feed station, which I would have loved to have spent more time at but was conscious of wanting to try and get in before 4:07, however timing wasn’t an issue once back at the hall where I was able to indulge in sandwiches, cake and a much needed cup of tea. Thanks to all for the fantastic catering. Finally I think the finishing gift of the socks was great, though Ray gets the benefit of 2 pairs as they are a bit big for my size 5s. It was only when I got home and opened the pack that I appreciated the design and quality of the socks.

We thoroughly enjoyed the event - cakes were amazing (too moreish!!) & the friendly support afforded by the hosts capped off a pleasurable (if slightly leg-busting) adventure.
Martin Farrelly
I really enjoyed the event. Every aspect was first class. All the marshals were fantastic, the food was excellent. I thought the French Tart cake was really good, and it was such a nice touch for them to offer a free coffee at their café in Surbiton.
Steve Brett
Just to say what a thoroughly enjoyable event this year’s May Flyer was despite the wind. Great organisation and the signage on the road was perfect…even the reminder to “save a bit for Coombe” which was a very good tip. Really friendly feed stations and very sell stocked.
Patrick Lacey
Brilliant event, well run. Glad you amended times thought I was getting old. Beat last years’ time just, despite strong winds. Well done 3rd time I’ve ridden it.
Keith Workman
A brilliant sportive with a fantastic route off the 'beaten track'. Some challenging climbs for my first sportive and circa 100 mile ride for over 15 years. A well organised event with great feed stations and hospitality
throughout (that one at circa 80 miles was a welcome sight)! The weather just about held and I will be back next year to concur a sub 6 hour ride (preferably without the wind and just a little more sun ... Please).
Thank you to all at SWRC.
Matt Graves
