Bridget Evans
Tour Director, Senior Guide & Retired Professional Racing Cyclist
Bridget is vibrant and friendly and has a special way of making you feel like she has met you before from the moment you meet and always goes to great lengths to make sure that you are comfortable and truly enjoying your tour as the experience of a cycling life time. Bridget’s talents for cycling are unique having competed for many years at the highest level of women’s international racing in a professional cycling career of over 10 years. Having trained and ridden with many of the best riders in the world Bridget can share some enthralling tales from the world of international bike racing in Europe and many parts of the globe.

Bridget may have spent her early years cycling in Australia but from the age of 22 Europe became her second home and is now very much a local in both France and Portugal too where she lives most of each year. With a contagiously cheerful personality and her in depth knowledge of not only the most scenic cycling routes in France, Italy, Switzerland, Portugal and Australia she is also responsible for all things nice…during your cycling experience.

Paul Hughes
Tour Director, Senior Guide & Elite Cycling Coach
Paul is a lifelong cycling enthusiast with a friendly personality and a cheeky sense of humour. He has over 35 years of involvement with cycling and racing including over 20 years’ experience in international cycling as a top level coach. Few people have knowledge of cycling and the history of international cycling races that is so detailed. Paul is always happy to share stories from around the world including his extensive knowledge of professional cycle coaching and with the people Paul has met, trained and worked alongside, combined with the places he has been, he is certainly not short of a story or two.

Paul not only loves great cycling but he also has a passion for his home towns in France and Australia. Paul loves showing people quality riding, beautiful towns and hidden gems amongst the countryside in Australia, France, Switzerland, Italy and Portugal where Practice Bicycle Bike Tours are run. If you are a wine lover be sure to have a chat with Paul about some of the local whites and reds wherever you are doing your tour. You will find Paul easily approachable to assist with any of your questions or requests and he is always more than happy to assist you with tips on cycling techniques and training methods if you are keen to improve your cycling enjoyment.
