Pre-tour briefings

Amboise

“We have been basking in memories of a very special time with you and a great bunch of people, and feel really relaxed as a result of a week of laughter, great riding and great food and wine. The memories of golden beer and balloons, wisteria walks and fountains, group photos and food, all enhance the thrill of the gears changing down into those bends.. For me, on pillion, I recall those lovely roads, through fields of vibrant yellow rape and deep green corn, the hedges of yellow laburnum with a backdrop of a cloudless blue sky…You are two of the world’s best, thanks for doing what you do so well, looking forward to next time”

“Firstly, thanks for a great trip to Sancerre. We can’t really think of anything we would have changed other than lowering the temperature a few degrees! We took over 180 pictures…so there is no shortage of memories, some of the pictures are hilarious and some need some serious censoring! We’re sure we will be back again”
