Just had a lovely letter from Phil McCarthy thanking us for all the tours he has enjoyed over the years, he continues to ride locally, but has now decided to hang up his leathers on the touring side. Phil was one of our very first customers when we started in 1996 and we actually ran a tour with just the two of us. Phil very much kept in the background but we have trawled back through our pictures to find a few of him and his distinctive bright yellow bike. (see our Facebook page) We wish him all the best and hope he continues to enjoy his biking for many more years to come.
We get lots of requests for advice regarding the best touring bike. Of course the stock answer is the one you are riding! Yes this is rather an over simplification, but the answer is used to encourage you to get out there and tour regardless of what bike you are riding. This is purely my personal opinion, but I think there are several factors that I think you should take into consideration.
There is no doubt with the recent COP24 Climate Conference in Poland and the government’s announcement today regarding better recycling of waste that climate control and the causes of it are very much on peoples mind.
I have to admit Spain and Portugal are two of my favourite destinations and once again this year’s tour did not disappoint.
This is a tour we have done for several years in a row, but one I always enjoy.
Well I would be lying if I said I was looking forward to the journey to Norway, since the Esberg ferry stopped a couple of years ago it’s a long ride across Holland, Germany and Denmark to the ferry across to Norway.
Had a brilliant tour to the Scottish Highlands with a few new hotels to add to our list of ‘fabulous’!!
Quite a crowd for this tour as the Dolomite's and Alps are always a popular destination
Yes another great tour to the gorges of France, Costa Brava and Pyrenees
