CYCLING IN THE LOIRE VALLEY

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Finding the hotels at the end of each day and our bags there in reception was like a pat on the back and the invisible Exodus person saying "well done". As I am a typical English cyclist, stopping with our flasks at the Pinic table for tea breaks was what life is all about. Seeing the outside of many chateaux and the inside of a BIG chateau.

What did you think of your group leader?

I was the group leader for us as a pair on this holiday - and I was great.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

It was a great holiday and you had looked out the best of a flatish area of France; we enjoyed exploring the quiet roads and tracks for which you had given us super bikes. To quote your literature "they are our Hybrid bikes don't worry about the surface, just do it". We'll be back.
