A Lovely Holiday
This was our first time cycling in France and Quinten our tour leader made sure every aspect of the holiday was taken care of. Unlike Italy where there are usually plenty of cafes for drink and snack stops, there wasn't on this route in France so Quinten supplied supplied great French picnics everyday, a real treat.
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
There were many inspirational moments like Carcassonne itself, the beauty of the Canal du Midi and the excellent vineyard tour.
What did you think of your group leader?
Excellent, Quinten couldn't do enough for you, including those legendary picnics. Quinten also owned the bikes so he made sure everything was working ok. Also booked great restaurants every night for all of us.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Whilst the overall terrain was relatively flat with a few undulations the condition of the Canal du Midi is quite poor so technically you have to be confident at cycling over rough ground at times, tree roots and ruts etc.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
A great holiday, I recommend it.
