The Wooler Wheel - What People Say.

Don't just take our word for it, here's what people tell us after they've completed the event.
  • I just wanted to say thank you to all the volunteers for organising Saturday’s event. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  The route through a beautiful part of the world was clearly marked, the marshalling was great and the water (and snacks) stops were very welcome, and a very nice lunch to top it off. Hope to be back next year.
  • Completed my first Wooler Wheel, fantastically well organised, bait top notch, I’ll be returning for 2018 event.
  • Great event today as usual, I’m impressed at the organisation every time.
  • Great day and well organised.
  • First time doing it, it was great – will definitely be back.
  • This was my first time doing this event. I was extremely impressed, well organised and not too formal. Having a hot meal & hot drink at the end of the cycle was simply the best so much better that a protein bar an a cold drink like so many other much more expensive events I’ve done! Thank you I will be doing it again for sure!
  • Thank you to all the organisers and helpers today. Extremely well organised as per usual. A big thank you should also go to Brenda and her assistants for laying on such a delicious lunch. Can you please leave the wind out next year!

  • Was my first sportive yesterday and loved it. Organisation was brilliant and all the marshals did a great job and gave us a cheer and encouragement which was definitively needed at times. Will definitely not be my last event. Thanks Wooler Wheel for a great day 🙂 x
  • My first Wooler Wheel. Fair to say the 170 was one of my hardest days on a bike. But great! Superb organisation on all fronts. Friendly helpful people without exception. Brilliant feed stations. Best organised event I’ve ever done I’d say.
  • Did the 170 for the second year running, hard but well-judged route. Wife did the 60 for her first ever sportive and loved it. Thanks to all the marshals, helpers and organisers for their cheerful and friendly efficiency.
  • The people manning the feed stations were welcoming and the supplies were plentiful. Food at the end was very welcome and we enjoyed a lovely coffee and ice-cream down the road at the Doddington Milk Bar before heading home. 

A great day out cycling around a lovely part of the world. You should all be very proud. As all ways a fantastic day out and great event ran by fantastic volunteers. I’ve done a few sportives and Wooler is still number 1.
