not sure if this is the right place , and not wishing to be negative or grumbly however...

just thought I'd give you a 'heads up' on facilities provided ( promised! ) at the CFC event in Stratford on Avon this past Sunday.


The website promised 'hot and cold food and drinks', 'support mechanics', ' marshalls throughout the course' and 'a free BBQ for participants'

The feeding stations 100k and 100 miles on a VERY hot Sunday over a tough Cotswold course were scantily supplied with flapjacks, custard cremes, crisps and sweets, after 10 o'clock the first feeding station had no food... the second feeding station was only a little better and no hot food or drinks were available.
At the finish there were no people to welcome competitors, not even bottled water; the BBQ was a queue in a tent for 1 burger...

Our crew had a great ride but felt the advertised support was a joke, Oh, and I only saw 2 marshalls all day and none at major road crossings.
Action Medical Research are superb by comparison, splendid support and feeds, loads of marshalls and visible mechanical support vehicles.

any thoughts? :shock:

For someone looking to have a first go at something similar by the end of the summer it sounds pretty rubbish?

How much was the entry? :?
