What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Getting to the top of the biggest hill, sweaty and breathing like an old cow, but still on my bike, when other people had given up and walked. A great personal achievement! But a great moment as everyone who made it enouraged all the group to do their best.

What did you think of your group leader?

Michele was a great guy and led us well but this trip was absolutely a double act. Theirs was a complete team effort and Enrico was far more than just the bike support. They both worked really hard to make our holiday the success it was. They had endless patience and good humour at all times and both made the trip really special.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Be prepared for the hills at the start of the week, but don't be put off, they calm down towards the later stages. The hybrid  bikes are good, but don't have any cages on the pedals - you definitely need to take your own pedals to ensure that you have good grip up the hills

Is there anything else you would like to add?

We like trying the new Exodus holidays and this certainly was a lovely one to experience. Perfect time of year to do it as you have time and space to explore and appreciate.  We were exceedingly lucky with the weather, this is not normal to have no wind and no rain and perfect blue skies.
