CYCLING IN THE LOIRE VALLEY
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The fact we had wonderful weather for the whole week, when only days prior to our arrival it had rained as much if not more than Britain.
What did you think of your group leader?
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Most of the overnight stops with no food provided were also the places most difficult to find a place to eat on the evening. We were very lucky, but would recommend you ask your hotel to book you into the best local restaurant prior to your departure. We were bitten by midgies, and would suggest you take preventative measures, as well as treatment.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
You really need to be able to speak some french to get by on a holiday in rural france. Don't go to France in May thinking you will be getting wall to wall sunshine, the weather is warmer than Britain, but you could get just as much rain. We were very lucky!
