Comments from some of our 2018 riders

A small selection of the many amazing comments we received following the event on 12th May 2018.

Kudos to all the organisers, Marshalls and helpers of todays Route 66. Many many thanks for the hard work you have already put in.

On behalf of the Newport CC Kids that road the 33 (well 40 with the cafe detour), I would like to thank Nova Raiders for a fabulous event today. The Route 33 was extremely well supported with very friendly volunteers and riders.

On behalf of NSCC's satellite club, 'Breaking Chains', I would like to say a huge thank you to the fantastic team and organisers of yesterday's Route 66 - always a brilliant event! You all made us feel so welcome. Completing this well-organised and challenging ride has given the guys in the club a massive boost of confidence and sense of achievement. Simply getting to the start line of something like this would have been unimaginable a year ago for these guys...never mind completing it with a smile on their face!

The road to recovery from addiction is always going to be tough. By giving us the chance to take part in a truly wonderful local event, surrounded by warm and friendly people in stunning scenery, you have all just made the journey that little bit more manageable. THANK YOU!

Thank you for an absolutely brilliant Sportive. I was not fully prepared for cycling to both Everest and K2 base camps but it was fantastic! The food stations were brilliant and the staff manning them were wonderful. Brilliant route, a lot of Sportives could learn from yours. Thanks!

I've never wished to join a cycling club, however, if you were closer I would without doubt want to.

To all the organisers of Route 66 and volunteers on road junctions and feed stations (you all know who you are) a big big thank you - all the hard work and support keep us all going and all your back room preparation definitely paid off xx

Quick note to offer my congratulations and thanks to all involved in organising what was a great event on Saturday. Really lovely vibe throughout. Looking forward to joining you again next year and, after sampling the beer, have a keen eye on the September event. Best of luck, Sean
