Its Not All About Garmin And Google Maps
After more than a few frustrating rides trying to get Garmin & Google Maps to play nice on unfamiliar roads in a different country, my husband and I decided to give Guided Tours a go for my 50th birthday holiday at Lake Annecy French Alps. What we found was a ‘pure gem’ of a company in Practice Bicycle Tours. Paul and Bridget are true professionals with decades of riding and bike racing experience (just Google Bridget’s palmares). They asked what kind of rides we wanted in terms of the terrain and time in the saddle and then all we had to do was enjoy the day. We rode on beautiful, low traffic rolling farm roads through gorgeous countryside at the perfect pace for both of us. Knowing the roads intimately, PB gave us the option of a patisserie stop and were also able to snap a few great photos of the stunning landscapes and mountain silhouettes along the way.
We highly recommend them without hesitation and will certainly experience the PB ride again!
