Challenging Cycling on a Wonderful Island

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

An extra early morning optional ride with MicheleQ back to the top of the Passo Montecani from the steep side. By far the toughest climb I've done, but a real sense of achievement. And what a descent!

What did you think of your group leader?

Both our guides, MicheleQ and MicheleZ were terrific. Real gentlemen who made a real effort to look after us and keep the group reasonably together on the road.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

There were some very casual cyclists on this trip, who amazed me with their fortitude. I cycle regularly and found it tough, and I think the more practice you can do the better, but don't be too proud to get in the ever-present minibus. Make sure you enjoy it and don't make it a trial! Don't hesitate to stop and take photos.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Can't wait to go back to Italy for another cycling holiday. Loved the food. Loved the weather. Loved the cycling. Loved the guides. Loved the rest of the group.
