This was such an excellent day out. The staff were friendly, the route was amazing, well marked out and mostly car-free, and got a little medal at the end of it! 3 counties, a couple of big hills, and some breathtaking views. I'll be signing up for all their subsequent events. Couldn't recommend enough.

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed riding yesterday's event. I was so impressed with the organisation running up to the event and on the day. It had a lovely relaxed atmosphere and everyone we met on and off the road were so friendly and helpful.
I was particularly impressed with the yellow signs... For me with no sense of direction whatsoever it was the most important part. I was able to relax and really enjoy the ride.
Thank you for all the time and effort you put into the whole event. I can imagine just collecting all those signs in at the end of the day was a mega task!
I'm looking forward to entering the next one.

Hi Chris & the team

Had a great day out yesterday doing the RAM sportive.

It was my 1st time doing this route & was thoroughly impressed with all aspects of it, even the roads weren’t ‘that bad’ for the UK !!

I thought the food stop was adequately stocked & the directional signage was ample.

There was only 1 junction where i (and a couple of others) took a wrong turn, it was at the end on a mini roundabout where there is 2 sharp left turns, I took the 1st instead of the 2nd. That road is all up hill as well !!

Maybe that arrow could be a bit bigger/clearer ?

As a result i did an extra 5 miles & about 500ft of elevation !!! (Looked good on Strava though !!)

Thanks for the event & hope to be doing The Raptor next month

Good morning
I just wanted to write and say thank you for organising such a great event on Sunday. I am training to do LEJog in September and deliberately chose your event as I wanted to see how I was doing climbing hills. I wasn't sure if I would make it round but I did and I felt so supported all the way round. The route was well labelled and I appreciated how friendly everyone was and how non-judgemental about speed and ability. I also like the way you have arranged the events so the next one involves more hills to build up to.
Thank you and I look forward to the next event

Hi there

I just wanted to drop you a line to say how much I enjoyed Sunday’s sportive. The weather was kind but importantly the route was excellent - with a little bit of everything - even cobbles!

The signage was clear and the route well marshalled.

Thanks for your hard work.

I’ll definitely be back

Great sportive. Well organised, breath-taking scenery, clearly signed route, perfectly placed feed station, superb photos and, most importantly of all, cheerful marshals' & Top Dog Team.

Just finished the Lakeland 100 and I must say it’s a great event. Thanks to Top Dog for excellent signage, wonderful friendly staff and helpers, fantastic route, great weather and a very well resourced base. I can fully recommend this event and the folks at “top dog”. I’ll be back next year and I hope the event grows as it deserves it.
