One of the best cycling trips!

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Hard to single out one moment - but the view over Florence when we arrived was magical - seeing the Doumo dominate the city, the wonderful Tuscan scenery, Radu reminding me of the best gelato in town awaiting us at the top of the long climb back to Castellina! He was a great motivator.

What did you think of your group leader?

Both Radu and Martin were excellent guides and great company. Radu was very knowledgable and gave lots of guidance and advice. Martin was great in support.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Take insect repellent for day and night - a few of us got bitten quite a lot! I would say some of the days are more grade 3/4 .

Is there anything else you would like to add?

There are some sections on 'white roads' essentially gravel roads and there were a couple of falls on our trip so be confident on this type of terrain. We loved it but are used to mountain bike terrain.
