Cumbrian Sportive

Hi all,

I entered this with three friends after finding it online:
http://www.howgillhammer.net/sportive-events/the-cumbrian-sportive/88-mile-course

I asked a couple of questions online and received no answer - and noticed only two people have 'liked it' on face book. Is it a legitimate ride? Have others riden with these people? Anyone doing it this year..?

Sorry if i sound paranoid - but my first sportive and I seem to have picked one no one has heard of...

    I have done it before but that was 2 years ago when it had another but now unfortunate name. It was a well run event and a quite a hard day out. I am thinking about doing it again this year.

    No need to get paraniod as its a decent event. Bring your climbing legs though as it feels like more than 2600m.
