Wharfedale Ton – Testimonials

I’d like to say thank you and congratulations to the staff from Gordons, the volunteers from Marie Curie and the rugby club for a well organised event on Friday, very well signed and welcome refreshments during and at the end.

We thoroughly enjoyed the day. Hope everyone made it round safely.

The event was a great success from what I could see and it does you and the Team a lot of credit – I also hope you enjoyed it if that’s the right word to use

One or two of our team might want to sign up for next year if you could please keep me in the loop.

~ Ben Cutts

I just wanted to say congratulations on a brilliant Wharfedale Ton again this year. Everyone seemed to be having a great day, really enjoying the event, impressed by the organisation  and also extremely pleased with the weather, even if it was a tad windy on the return leg!

The Marie Curie volunteers all commented on how much they’d enjoyed being part of the event so thank you for inviting us to be there. It was great to meet all the cyclists and helpers and say thank you for their support of the event and Marie Curie.

It really was a splendid day and thank you so much to all involved for such wonderful support for the hospice. I know it must have taken a huge amount of work and effort to bring it all together so heartfelt thanks from all of us here, we really are so grateful.

Congratulations again on such a successful event.

~ Liz Howlett, Marie Curie

A slightly belated note to say a big thank you for a superbly organised and attended Wharfedale Tom 2017 – I loved it!

What a fantastic day, well done on pulling it off so successfully – everyone I’ve spoken to after the event really enjoyed it.

Hopefully this will be a firm annual fixture in the corporate social calendar!!!

Just would like to say a big thank you for organising such a scenic ride out last Friday.

I have never before ridden in a sportive where the marking has been so thorough and clear, so well done your marking team.

Both Simon and I enjoyed the whole day apart from the last 5 miles, that last rise felt like a mountain !!!!

~ Ian Thompson Cartwright

Thank you for the organisation of the ride on Friday. It was superb. I had a great time, as did those with me.

I hope you raised a good sum.

~ Nicola Twine

~ Steve Harrison

Just to say it was a great day, very well organised and all for such a very worthwhile cause.

My sincere thanks to you and all at Gordons who helped the make the event the success it clearly was – here’s to next year!

~ Don Lepelley

I just wanted to say thank you to you and the team for organising a brilliant event.

It was the first year I have taken part and I thought the organisation and cycling was fantastic.

~ Ed Langham

I just wanted to thank you and the Gordons team for a fantastic day on Friday, we ended up with a peloton of 20-25 for most of the route which was brilliant on the flat quiet roads that the route took and the lumps after Wetherby on the way back provided a great finale for those with energy left!!

The organisation was spot on and the event seems to strike an excellent balance between a challenging ride in terms of distance but also a good social day out with excellent route signage and feed stops providing all that a hungry cyclist needs… a mountain of flapjack. ”

~ Jeremy Elder

Very many thanks to you for the splendid event you organised today in support for Marie Curie.      It was a great success and very well done to you and John H for completing the whole course.

As you know I brought home the collection and it amounts to £213.10 which is an amazing result.   £170 was in notes.

~ Christine, Marie Curie

Thanks for a great day, I only bought a road bike and joined a club after signing up for this. Hooked now!

~ Louisa France

I thought I would just take the opportunity to say thank you for organising such a marvellous event. Everything went perfectly including the weather.

~ Ian Blakeley

Just a quick email to say what a great day Friday was – cycle networking events work really well, I think, and very well organised too.

Hope everyone made it round the course without mishap, and well done on the considerable sum raises.

~ Robyn Hawxby

Thanks for organising such a well organised and well run event.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

The route signage was faultless, the refreshments were excellent and the start finish venue couldn’t be faulted.

And the weather (which I know you also booked) was perfect, even the head wind return

Thanks again and we will be back again next year for more.
