    Tour de France Special

    This was an excellent, well organized trip with plenty of cycling and many tough climbs. One got a real flavor of Le Tour and saw four of the stages, cycling part of them. One has to be a reasonably experienced cyclist to cope with the climbs and handle the descents coupled with the distances involved. The hire bike was good although the headset failed at the end. All in all to be recommended for cycling enthusiasts!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Seeing the likes of Chris Froome and Peter Sagan close up literally inches away. Also the fun of the Caravan and the spectacle of the many supporters.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Thierry was great, he coped well with our group of eight, had a great sense of humour and was a supreme and sympathetic organizer.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Make sure you get the miles in, including climbs before you attempt this trip. The rewards are worth the effort!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Some guys took their own bikes which is a nice to have but not necessary. The Scott road bikes were great.

    Tour de France Special

    An unforgettable experience, I can hardly believe we did it.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Climb every mountain? Julie Andrews sang it so well...really, the week was epic

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Thanks to my companions. Part of the pleasure of being a group member was also down to our guide. Yves' relaxed style fronts a deep well of local knowledge and I suspect of human psychology.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    For a relative newcomer to 'drop bars' the question 'is this trip for you' kept me awake at night. The tour notes proved an accurate guide to a holiday beyond expectation. Do it!

    Big thanks Will and Exodus

    TOUR DE FRANCE SPECIAL

    Cycled through beautiful country and experienced the colour and chaos of Le Tour on three occasions in good company. Couldn't believe the speed of the pros.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Watching the pros on the hilly time trial.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Vincent was very friendly and helpful. He went out of his way to sort out problems and encourage riders. His supply of snacks seemed endless. 

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take some lights for your bike as the rides often went through tunnels (the hire bikes were not provided with lights). I believe French laws requires lights on bikes going through tunnels! Work on your fitness before you go. The cycling on this trip is not too hard but the Cols do present a challenge at times.
