Did it in 2013. note, not a sportive it's an audax.

Perhaps the on-line abuse the organisers have been getting about the sign up process can be blamed on people thinking this is a corporate run sportive instead of a volunteer manned audax.

The price for 5 days of meals and the possibility of a place to sleep would be far greater is this was run along the lines of Ride London.

It's a great adventure which will stay with you for a lifetime, just be prepared to be self sufficient which is the entire ethos of audax.
