Dauphine Tour Perfect June Cycling Holiday
Practice Bicycle Thank you for a great cycling Dauphine tour.
We enjoyed the live roadside race action immensely. We now know why you guys choose to live half the year in Annecy, France. It’s a fantastic place and the riding in the area is unbelievable.
Thanks for the great photos of our cycling holiday. They cheered me up no end this morning. It was Day 3 at work and I’ve already had enough! Hope the Tour de France bike tour and the ones following went well for you, we only wish we could have stayed longer, although your tip for our cycling holiday in June was perfect!
