Comments from the 2018 event

The Fell start
All these comments are completely unsolicited. Thanks everyone for recommending the Ribble Valley Ride in the best possible way!

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all the others involved in organising today’s fantastic event.  It’s the first sportive we’ve ever taken part in, but we all absolutely loved it- a lot of effort had clearly gone into organising – the facilities etc were first class and the atmosphere created amongst the participants was incredible, with lots of encouragement along the way for our two junior cyclists.  Thanks again, we’ll definitely be back next year!

Hi, just wanted to say how much myself and partner really enjoyed our first Ribble Valley Ride on Sunday. Such a fantastic event and brilliantly organised, thank you! L

I just wanted to write a quick note to thank you for the ride yesterday. What a fabulous route, it really reminds us of what a wonderful country we live in. Not so sure about the food stops though – I have never thought that I should put on weight during a ride but was unable to resist the array of sandwiches, pies and cakes! Thank you again and I hope to see you again next year. DC

I just wanted to say thank you. I really, really enjoyed the Ribble Valley Ride last Sunday and have raised around £250 for Rosemere. I did the 25-mile route this time but am keen to get training and do the 60-mile route in 2019. Thanks for all the organisation – the snacks at Chipping were delicious and the bacon butty back in Clitheroe was amazing! JW

Can I thank you on behalf of myself and a dozen other members of SK6 Spinners (Marple/Stockport) for organising such a great ride yesterday through your beautiful scenery.  The whole event was brilliantly run with so many willing helpers.  It was really good value, too – good food, free event photos as well!   Several of us appreciated the massage, too.    I hope your partner charities did well.  For a few of us it was our first proper sportive and it was a great introduction.    I’m sure we will be back.  MS

I would like to say thank you for yesterday, it really was brilliant and I will not hesitate in joining the ride again next year. MK

Fantastic day was Had by all, excellent food and well organised. Plus love the photo of our club thank you & see you all next year. RH

A fantastic RVR 100k event today!  A massive thank you to all the volunteers who lined the course at various points and made sure we were all fed and watered at the feeding stations and to the admin team at the start/finish – really enjoyed the day. D P-B

Yep, thanks to everyone involved, it was a brilliant event. Quite a tough ride through some beautiful scenery and villages.  RB

Another brilliant event thanks everyone. DT

An enjoyable event I did the 25 one. Thank you. A well organised event. SM

So don’t take our word for it – but you can see why WE think the Ribble Valley Ride is the BEST cycle sportive in the North of England!
