Custom French Alps Cycling Testimonial
Our French Alps cycling holiday Testimonial
We were recommended by some friends who experienced the Tour de France with Practice Bicycle Bike Tours in the French Alps. We were looking for a ‘bit of a mates week away’ along with some cycling challenges to add to the fun. From the moment we received our Itinerary based on our custom cycling training week we were impressed with the professionalism, detail, for what awaited us. We were met by a male and female guide…WOW! Looks are deceiving, can these guys pedal, not just pedal, they can press, climb, they nurtured us on an epic ride into the Grand Alps it was 7.5 hrs on the bike. They balanced this with easier rides, they know the terrain, all the quiet back roads, great cafe stops and recommended great restaurants. But most of all Paul has the ability to make sure we all had a unforgettable French Alps cycling experience!
Thanks for making my 50th one to remember!
