What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

That would be when one of the group arrived at the top of a hill on the last day after really struggling with the cycling for the first few days. It was great to see his improved fitness and high spirits - there is no beach in the world that could do that.

What did you think of your group leader?

Peter was great, shhhhimply couldn't wish for more.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

If you're a cycling holiday virgin like I was, just give it a go!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The fab thing about a cycling holiday in Italy is that you can eat the pasta and pizza and still come home a few pounds lighter!
