SUNDAY 9th JUNE 2013

Don't just take our word for it!

Here are what others have been saying about the rides....

"Thanks to all the organizers, supporters and other riders.
Brilliant day even with the bit of rain and doughnuts were lovely.
Evidently I have some serious competition on the most inappropriate bike contest - hats off to the chopper & BMX riders!"

"Thoroughly enjoyed the experience, great day and great ride, it was my first time but certainly won't be my last, i would also like to congratulate all the other riders for taking part and for there friendly support throughout the day, and a huge thank u to all the guys and gals who made it possible."

"Another great C2C ride. Well done Simon and Crew. BIG THANKS to the Southfork Guys who rescued me from a broken chain. Without you guys it would have been the end of my ride.
Just like to add my thanks to all those who helped to make the ride such a success."


Hope you stick to the boomerang idea next year. "The Barnstaple boomerang" has a certain ring to it and some of those hills around Exmoor are just waiting to be climbed.

Not sure why I look about 90 years of age on the picture taken at the top of Mount Libbaton."

"It was all good. A great day and a very enjoyable way to earn lots of dosh for a very worthy cause. The organisation and support was excellent.
Am aiming not to have to walk parts of the way up some of those killer hills next year. I've got the biking bug and I'll be fully trained next year!"

Can I add my thanks to all concerned - great day! D route last year, Z route this year, what's next? Perhaps I'll do it without alternate whimpering and swearing up the hills.

"Just to say thanks to all those involved in the organisation, a brilliant event, really enjoyed it. Also, a big thanks to those who helped patch me up at Beaford after I crashed! See you next year. Thanks again"

"excellent day first time wont be the last. well organised Thank you."

"what a cracking day my second c2c and already looking forward to 2012 , thanks to all who organised such an enjoyable event and what a fab welcome back @ Bideford park - makes ya feel quite proud to support such a worthwhile event... cu all in 2012 !!"

"Great event - well organised and with a great spirit!

I'll definitely be back next year - hopefully with a larger team."


"This was my first but won't be my last. A fantastic day, so well organised with such great support on and off the route and I was delighted to be part of it. Could have done without the 2 punctures before leaving Bideford though !!!. My personal heroes - the two guys, one on a Raleigh Chopper the other on a tiny BMX.......................well done both and everyone else on more conventional bikes."

"Great day yesterday - everyone supporting each other on the ride. I was a bit concerned that z route people went down and up a hill that wasn't in their route, but they were all smiling! Breaks were in a good place and set up really well. This was my first and may not be my last! Well organised, supported and many thanks to all the volunteers."

"Thanks to all for a really enjoyable ride.

Well organised and a big thanks to the ladies in the 'Edd's vans', we didn't actually need any assistance, just reassuring to have you around 'just in case'."

"Thanks Simon and Crew great 'Z' route and a brilliant day."

"What can I say? awesome day! Congrats to all the riders and to organisers, vols, sponsors, supporters and carefree for making this the biggest and best yet!!!"

"Simon and team - A big thank you for yet another fantastic ride. Your hard work is appreciated by everyone who enters - well done to you all!"

"Thank you for a fantastic day , well run and supported . thank you ."

"What a great day - first time ever on something like this and it was fantastic - big thanks to the folk that did such a brilliant job getting it organised - the whole day ran like clock work. I'm sure my legs will recover in another month or so..."

"Can I extend a huge thanks to Sean, Simon, Mark and all the others involved in organising today's ride. You work extremely hard in making the event so successful and it is really appreciated by all us riders. Well done."
