Cycling In The Alps Testimonial
Cycling in the Alps was Unforgettable
We would personally like to thank you guys for our custom French Alps Cols cycling training this week. We had an absolute ball and you were able to take all the stress out of what would have been a very difficult place to navigate around if we did not have our local guides. Your knowledge and advice prior and during the training rides was second to none and catering for the three of us and the particular Alps climbs on our wish list was extremely supportive and accommodating. All cycling together up Alp d’Huez will stay with us forever. Again, well done and I would highly recommend Practice Bicycle Bike Tours to anyone traveling to the French Alps and looking for a fully catered and well-organized cycling tour.
