We have received numerous e-mails from many very happy participants.
Here are just a few of them.

I took part in your amazing Tour last weekend (160k). I wanted to express my deepest thank you to all of you that organized the event, volunteered and the sponsors. It was truly one of the best events I have ever done. The friendliness of the other cyclists and volunteers made me feel so welcome. The route you created was perfect! Lovely quiet, safe country roads, beautiful scenery!  The variety of snacks at the stops were surprising, I brought all my own food but couldn't resist the most tasty oranges! Wow!  Thank you to everyone!!

Greetings Le Tour de Norfolk Organizers and Volunteers. Thanks for another great event and fun ride. We enjoyed the 40 km tour on Saturday through the early morning mist and dew and the picturesque scenery along this route. Special kudos to your volunteer Clair who promptly fixed a flat rear tire. He arrived just as we were placing a call for help … great timing! The food, drinks and hospitality were all great and greatly appreciated!

The ride appeals to all levels of riders, the routes are really well planned and scenic, the road surfaces are great, the volunteers are helpful and friendly, the support is awesome, and the weather was perfect! How do you get the weather to co-operate….you must have some awesome connections!?  Congratulations on a super job…..can't wait for next year.

Thank you for putting on an amazingly well organized ride weekend.  I rode 160 km on Saturday and 75 km on Sunday.  Despite the very hot and sunny weather both days, I managed to stay well hydrated and well fed for the entire duration of both routes. And to make things even better, the routes were marked incredibly well – and color coded – wow!  The hospitality and helpfulness of the volunteers was incredible, so a big thank you to each of the volunteers.

It was one of the best organized cycling events I've ever done. . .the roads were painted to perfection with direction arrows, you didn't run out of food, you reacted well to the heat, we had access to the outdoor pool and the volunteers did a fantastic job! Everyone needs to put it on their ride list for next year!

Once again, I wish to congratulate you on organizing a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. Words cannot express my gratitude for all the work you put into this. The volunteers were all friendly, helpful, and joyous. The refreshment stops were ideally placed and sustenance was in great supply.

Thank you for a delightful event.  This was the first road cycling event I have ever done and had a fantastic time.  The volunteers were wonderful and the event was incredibly well organized.  I look forward to future Tour rides.

Thank you for a well-run event. This was my 1st year and your ride came highly recommended. I did manage to convince 5 others to join me and I am sure we will have more next year.  I appreciate the friendliness of everyone and the use of the pool and showers after.

I have to thank you for giving me such a wonderful first time experience on a cycling event.  I truly enjoyed the people I chatted with while cycling and at the rest stops.  I loved your choice of stop locations and all the wonderful volunteers.  The local stops we added at a peanut shop, garage and plant sales made me feel part of such a lovely community.

A quick note to say thank you for once again putting on such an enjoyable event.  The new routes worked very well, rest stops and lunch were great and all the volunteers were wonderful.  We had asked friends from Virginia to join us this year, sadly they did not make it, but after seeing pictures they are planning on next year already!  Kudos to the entire team, you make it look easy, but we all know how much planning and effort goes into running a weekend like this.  Thank you, we will see you next year!

Thank you, Norfolk, for a fabulous weekend! Your county is gorgeous, and the Tour de Norfolk volunteers are amazing. See you next year.

My wife and I just spent a really great weekend riding the Tour de Norfolk with friends and would like to thank all those involved with putting on a fantastic, friendly ride.



Thanks for an outstanding event! This was my first, and hopefully first of many Tours, through the beautiful Norfolk countryside ... it was very well organized, the food plentiful and the volunteers outstanding – consistently warm, welcoming & helpful.  Loved the routes!  See you next year!

Last year was my first ride and I had a group of 5. This year, there were about 10 of us, plus others who traveled with us to the region to do other non-cycling activities. Everyone had a great time and is looking forward to future years.

Just a short note to say THANKS for another great event, well organized, great route, well marked, awesome rest stops and a MUST ride event every summer!!!

Thanks to all the volunteers as well, they were so welcoming and the event was great!!!

Thanks and we will see you next year without question....

Thank you so much for organizing a fantastic event! This was my first Tour de Norfolk, but it will not be my last. Organization was superb, refreshments were available when needed, and road directions were very helpful.

So, thank you for your great work and to all the wonderful volunteers who made this a weekend to remember.  See you next year.

Some friends told us about Le Tour de Norfolk, and I decided that my husband and I would ride it. I was very impressed!  All of the volunteers who participated to organize this ride must be commended!  I was impressed by the organization, the signage – road paint, the food, the stops, the quality, everything.   And for the price!  I could not believe it! You all did a fantastic job and should be very proud of yourselves!  From now on, I am going to hold all other tours to your high standards.  Well done!

My friend, husband and I participated in the Tour de Norfolk this year.  I want to thank the Tour organizers for a fantastic tour.  Nothing could have been done better.  All the volunteers were super and the amount of snacks....we hardly had to touch the food we brought with us.  The route itself was great, scenic and had low traffic.

We will definitely consider this tour again next year and will tell our other cycling friends.

You guys did an amazing job with this tour. Very well organized; aid stations were very well located (distance wise), having Gatorade was a great idea. I have recommended this tour to my cycling friends/groups in Toronto.  Keep up with the great work.

Thanks for the great experience and we wish you every success in the future!

Thanks for the wonderful weekend we enjoyed participating in our first ever Le Tour de Norfolk.  Eight of us from our cycling club took part and we certainly enjoyed our experience as we found the event well organized with a most enjoyable routing.  We plan on coming back with a much bigger group from our club next year. Thanks again for putting together such a nice ride and we look forward to being there again next year.

We want to thank the organizers and volunteers of the annual Tour de Norfolk for putting on this annual event.  This was our fifth Tour of the Delhi area and one we enjoyed very much. The ride was as enjoyable as ever – easy-to-follow route, well-stocked rest stations, and a delicious spaghetti lunch. And the ice cream was the perfect finishing touch. But what impressed us most was the warmth and enthusiasm of all the volunteers.  Without their generous gift of time, these events would not be possible.  So, our thanks to all of you for putting on this event for the cycling community.  You make our summer!
