Bolzano to Venice

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

There were many, but the one that stands out for me was the ride down through the vineyards and into Soave. The sun was out, the grapes were being picked and the castle overlooking the town all came together and I thought 'this is the life'

What did you think of your group leader?

Michele is a legend. He couldn't do enough for us, always smiling and with a great sense of humour. He took us to some super restaurants and cafes, advised us on the local food and drink and his local knowledge on the history, architecture and culture of the area really added to our enjoyment of the holiday. We also got to meet his beautiful family in his most beautiful city.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

If you are thinking about it, just do it. And when you do, take time to look around, take it all in and enjoy every minute because the week goes too quickly.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

If you are worried about riding with a group of people you've never met, don't. We had a great bunch, all different ages and abilities, a real diverse group, but we all gelled so well. It was another highlight of the holiday enjoying their company, having a lot of fun both whilst riding and after in the bars and restaurants.
