“Just returned from a great week riding the roads of the South West of England and Mid/South Wales. Wow, who would have thought we have so many great biking roads in our own back yard. Many thanks to John and Jen for putting together a great trip at such short notice (replacement for a European trip). Good accommodation, good food, great riding.”

“Hi John and Jen, a very nice trip thank you. Great quality roads (especially in Wales), good routes, decent, clean, modern accommodation and a good bunch of people to spend some time with, excellent!”

Great breakfast here

“Hi both, again thanks for another great tour delivered so professionally under difficult conditions at such short notice. To have managed to get such good accommodation also is no mean feat, see you next year in Spain. Kind regards”

“Hi John & Jen, thanks for the picture, it’s a great shot and you can see that everyone is enjoying it. Ann and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and it was a revelation to me how good some of our UK roads can be. We are looking at the calendar for next year and will let you know – I quite fancy doing the Champagne tour followed by the Autumn Glory next year or possibly the Portugal/Spain in September – decisions, decisions…cheers”
