What our riders think…

Excellent flapjack thank you ladies x

An excellent day, organised outstandingly! Well done guys, you certainly created memories for a lot of the children and adults alike!

Fab day for a cycling widow

Nice to get off the bike for a drink and a flapjack. Big thank you to all involved.

Many thanks for the refreshments in the heat of the day.

Superb wraps once again

Well done to those ladies keeping all of us fed and watered, thank you x

Many thanks again for a great event yesterday, so pleased it’s grown how it has, I only wish I’d been able to attend last year and have 100% attendance

Was an awesome day and loved the ride and route!! Also great to see so many young ones out doing the short route.

Great event, the food stop ladies were fab, even put sun cream on for me so I didn’t have to take my gloves off

Two years in a row for this event and in my eyes the feed stop is becoming legendary. Don’t improve it anymore or you may need to move the finish as it’s getting harder to leave the food stop. lol

Many congratulations on a great day yesterday, I don’t underestimate the amount of work that must go into it!

Please give our thanks to all on the feed station, boy were we glad to see them!

I think we were officially the last ones back! The heat really got to me. Want to say a HUGE thank you to the guy who did the pre ride briefing and the lady directing cyclists at the medium/long feed station who both stayed to welcome us over the finish line. It was very much appreciated.

Really great to hear the event was successful. The organisation was fantastic, was very well signposted, and the food and drinks at both the 40 mile mark and at the fun day were much appreciated.

Just to add, all through the day I was wondering – how do you do it for the money? I am guessing the answer is the volunteers, so a special thank you to all of those people standing out in the sun, smiling at every person who went past.

I thought I would drop you an email to say what a great day we had today on your sportive. We have been to three out of the four times it’s been held including the one when a jumper was on the bridge but today’s tops them all. Our friend had a mechanical issue which meant he could not carry on and was carried to safety by a top of the range discovery!! With air con on full. The ladies at the feeding station were brilliant, cheered every time someone came into the car park then ensured they had enough water and food to keep them going. The route was so well sign posted and we were informed of the small changes you had made at the start so we know to look out for them.

The commemorative cycling jerseys were a great idea, it gave the event a real team spirit.

Thanks again for putting on such a great sportive and roll on next year!!!

Quality speaks for itself when you sell out!! 🙂

Fantastic day on the long route supportive today. Thanks to all the helpers.

May we both pass on our thanks to all the organisers, marshals and volunteers without whom these events would not be possible.
Let’s hope we have achieved a great fund pot for such a worthy cause.

Lovely visit to the fun day with amazing acrobatic skills on show!

Good event thoroughly enjoyed it although very very hot. The ladies at the food stop were excellent. Thank you

The food stop was brilliant as was the mechanical support. I had a puncture on the bridge on the way out & then another 2/3 of the way round. A big thanks to them for taking over the 2nd time & making quick work of it when we were hot, tired & filthy

Great event . VERY well organised. Done many etapes & food stop was ACE !! Hot cuppa was fantastic plus tuna wrap & Pork pie ! Sun cream was a big bonus too. Fantastic effort by the guys manning the stall. Well done one & all !!!

Brilliant xx

It was an amazing event and a great tribute to Ellie. Thank you for all your efforts xx

What a fantastic day and great weather was ordered for the day which was certainly delivered. Thanks to all involved with the organisation of this event, truly amazing. Can’t wait to do it again next year.

What a fantastic day. Thoroughly enjoyed the short route even though someone removed one of the direction signs and I ended up doing an extra 5 miles! Great organisation, great weather and great day xx

@HumberSportive another fantastic sportive, thanks to all your volunteers for making it so enjoyable, see you next year

The volunteers were wonderful, applauding every rider to drop in. Thank you for that special push into the home straight

Thank you! Brilliantly organised, with very friendly, supportive volunteers and great route through the countryside!

I just wanted to say thank you for a cracking day out. I along with a couple of other fifty something friends came to do the short course and treat it as a pleasure ride.
Great venue, really smashing course and great support, one of us had a tyre explode about 200 yards from the mid way stop, by the time we had loaded up with food and drinks his bike was back fit and ready to ride with a brand new tyre and tube for the princely sum of £17.50.

Enjoyed it so much I shall retain the ride on my Garmin to do on another day. Well done and thank you.

I just wanted to thank everyone involved in the event it was wonderfully organised from the start during and finish. Well done all the team I am now at home with my feet up and a nice cuppa, cooling off.

Just wanted to thank you for organising such a fantastic event. I was a Sportive virgin and what a fab way to be introduced to the world of Sportives. At least you can take the rest of the year off to recover from all the stress.

I didn’t hear anyone moaning, they only had words of praise. Well done and congratulations on a successful event!

The flapjack was amazing. Thank you all for the work you put on and for the encouragement xxx

Good afternoon,
First of all thank you for organising a fantastic event. This was my first ever sportive and I loved it.

Respect to you.

Superb wraps once again

@HumberSportive awesome times!

Thank you, much needed liquids today.

Many thanks for the refreshments in the heat of the day.

@HumberSportive what a fantastic event. Brilliantly organised with great volunteers all the way & particularly at 42m half-way at Ulceby

Nice to get off the bike for a drink and a flapjack. Big thank you to all involved.

I wanted to drop you a line to congratulate you on a successful event…

Great event yesterday, my first sportive, won’t be the last.
When will next year’s event be available to enter and where will I be able to enter, will it be on British cycle website?
Thanks again for a great event – thoroughly enjoyed it
great sportive, will be back next year for sure,
Thank you to all who have organised this ride. It was fantastic, a lovely route, so well organised. The flapjack was top, and you even thought of sunscreen. Thank you also to the tech support, my husband had a tyre literally explode, made us all jump out of our skin,
Many thanks, I had the biggest banana I’ve ever seen, I called it a gorillas banana

Thank you it was fantastic as a result probably spent a bit too long there. Great event again

You were amazing ladies! The encouragement on arrival, the lovely cold water, plenty of food options and smiling faces. Thank you, it’s much appreciated – especially in this heat! X

Lovely ladies (and gent!). Thank you loads for your support and encouragement!

Thank you so much ladies. You all did a proper top job. And clapping people in was an awesome touch

They were wonderful, applauding every rider to drop in. Thank you for that special push into the home straight.
Outstanding as ever. Thank you.

Best feed station with a great selection and wonderful team offering so much support. Thank you

These ladies were fantastic not only did they cheer us on arrival but we’re so helpful.. well done ladies for the best service we have ever had !!!

The best ‘feed station’ I’ve ever been to. So friendly, lovely wraps and flapjack, tea, coffee…brilliant! Thanks so much…

Brilliant job thank you

A huge thank you to all those who gave up their precious time to volunteer at this event it was amazing

Really well organised and run

Thank you for amazing organisation and support on route. It is really well organised so I hope the problem with the off route group hasn’t caused you too much hassle!

Hi Ian & team,
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for organising such a fun, rewarding and worthwhile event.
Great event, the food stop ladies were fab, even put sun cream on for me so I didnt have to take my gloves off. One thing I will say though is – could have done with another water station at about 40k on the long route – I’d run out of water before Caistor which made it very difficult in the heat :(other than that a great day!)

Hi, Thank you for organising such a wonderful day, My family and I came over to Hessle for the weekend and had a wonderful time.

Hi. Just to say thank you for organising such an amazing event again. The volunteers were all amazing and the food was fab. We had a great ride and so glad to hear you raised a fantastic amount for the charity.
