“We both had a terrific time and were very impressed with the organisation, standard of hotels and the whole experience. I was pleased I could do some rides, but still get to go with the non riders in the van on other days. The guides were lovely, very encouraging and helpful. Being able to have 2 nights at each place was nice, rather than having to pack up and move every day”.

“Kaitlin and Grace were on top of everything, Kudos to them. Also, it was nice to have crossed paths with Eric, John and Howard whom I had met in ’08. The ferry boat from Corsica was fantastic. Like a mini cruise. I was really impressed with that”.

“Thank you for yet another fabulous cycling holiday…. As per usual your staff are amazing and we felt that our group was by far the ‘best’. Eric, Sim, Peter and Paul really did an outstanding job and Jean-Luc was amazing with his bus driving skills and kindness. We all felt like one big happy family… Once again thank you for an outstanding trip”.

“My husband Don and myself thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Vincent, Anne, Paul and TP were fantastic and we cannot fault them. The chalet we stayed in was perfect and our hosts were brilliant. It was lovely being able to stay in the one spot for the entire ride”.

“As with our previous trip with Bikestyles… we had an amazing time. Everything ran smoothly, the weather was perfect as was the country side we had the privilege to ride each day. Our guides on both tours were fantastic, great bike skills, good company and a multitude of personalities. I would like to make a special mention to Grace, our non riding (and only female guide for each of our tours). Grace was wonderful, she did absolutely everything she could to ensure everyone’s needs or even just wants were met. I do not know where she gets her energy from. She is an amazing, fun loving and positive person perfect for the job she does.
Another special mention goes to the family who set up the catering van for us. This was a really fantastic idea. Being able to watch the stage on the TV after riding or between riding to or from with the added bonus of lunch and drinks was terrific and we found it a really great addition to the tour. The family, who got themselves up, organised and into position at some ridiculously early times of the morning were lovely, friendly and couldn’t do enough for us”.

“Ginger… I just wanted to thank you for the epiphany that I had on the bike whilst in France. The day started with a ‘dummy spit’ from me! and then with your tuition on how to use the gears on my bike, it was like going from night to day. The difference was huge and all of a sudden I could understand the enjoyment of bike riding. I so enjoyed the same ride 2 days later when you accompanied us (and Eric) and with your help (and Eric’s) I managed those hills in the saddle!
Since our return I have been on the bike 3 times a week (and every week) and averaging 120kms+ per week. I have lost about 6 kgs in weight and feel great and love being on the bike. Work has to now fit in with my fitness regime!! If I hadn’t ridden with you on that day, I daresay that the bike would be no more so I thank you”.

“Ran like clock work, every detail was cater for which meant all we had to worry about was enjoying ourselves. The guides were a perfect mix and showed us the wonders of France and the race. The equipment – bikes, bus etc were fantastic (The bus made us feel like rock stars.) Hotels were good… Food was great”.
