The bike trip was terrific! Guides were great – thoughtful, responsible, creative, trustworthy, and very strong bikers. Equipment was fine. Group members were easy and supportive of each other, and the countryside was beautiful. The hills were a challenge, but mostly manageable. I was often exhausted at the end of the day, but the alchemy of food and sleep each night did the trick, and I’ve come back in better shape than when I left.
