Excellent trip! A great group of people where everyone clicked. Interesting (in good way) countryside, warm weather and some good cycling. The optional sea kayaking on 1 day was just brilliant: the water was as blue as it is in the brochure (at that one place).
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Descending a mountainside through cloud; that was both eerie and very tranquil.
What did you think of your group leader?
Oz, Yashar and Cirvet were good, pleasant tour leader/guide/driver. Oz and Yashar led the cycle rides at a good pace, and one of them was always at the back to ensure no one fell back. Cirvet was always driving the van behind us so those who wanted to rest their legs could.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Obviously, the more you have cycled beforehand, the more you will enjoy the trip. There were 3 long climbs on separate days - 16km, 8km and 7km - so some hill practice would be good. That said, I'm useless riding up hills and still managed (well, not all of the 16km ... then I was SO glad to jump in the van ...)
Great biking, great company, great guides and plenty of exercise!! Don't believe the hype, there are plenty of uphills on this trip. However, for the less honed biker (myself included) the support bus was a godsend, and the driver had the patience of a saint. The downhills weren't exactly a walk in the park either, but if you like off-roading then you will really enjoy this trip.
