"Just wanted to say that today’s Cambridge 100 bike ride was really fabulous. I did the ride last year also and the route this year was so much better – varied, interesting and really pretty in the sunshine. The aid stations were good and well spaced. And getting a medal at the end was much appreciated. Well done!" Simon B-G

"Fully enjoyed the Cambridge 100 yesterday! This was my first 100 mile ride. I will be coming back soon!" J. B.
