What our cyclists say

"I was absolutely bowled over by the event! The route, the food and accommodation, the dinner, and the attention to the riders' welfare over the weekend was quite superb. No detail was too small. I have taken part in many similar events and BOXCAM 200 rates as the best. Thank you for a fabulous weekend"
