I posted a comment on facebook that has raised a couple of hackles. Oh well you can't keep all the people happy all of the time etc.

Nothing too dramatic in the replies to get up about, me thinks. Our marshals were substantially better riders than I, so their fast exploits up and down the streets and, yes, a little on one sidewalk I saw, did not raise my concern.

It's interesting how different ride organisers seem to have either interpreted the rules differently or made up their own. I'd have to say that the organisation for the Cambridge ride was exemplary. We had a good clear briefing, in which we were advised that the ride leaders/guides had no authority to direct traffic, they were introduced to us and had a very specific type of fluorescent jacket that was easily identifiable out on the run. Good stuff, by my book.

I agree we were given no instructions at all. I got the feeling it was organised b y a small group who did it last year and were a little surprised at the number of people who turned up , I blame  *whistle* that Richard in the US  *smile* *smile* *clap* . They were very friendly and once completed when chatting I was told that there were quite a lot on constraints placed upon the organisers .
Next year they will change the route and way it's organised. they have a facebook page which I'm going to see if I can get some pictures and a couple of videos onto here .

Fantastic weather but I couldn't ride myself. I had a short look at bunch in our village... a friend of mine made a short film on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/raphael.vonaesch/videos/1408270409187351/).
