This was an enjoyable holiday with more lakes than coast, great guides and lovely weather. August is almost too hot to cycle in, especially along tarmac roads. I loved the final day through pine forests, but honestly, this trip was beyond my fitness levels: I trained for London to Brighton all year, and continued with an hour three times a week. You really need to be a cyclist (or young!) to get the most out of this trip, cycling wise! Nobody made me feel bad about using the van everyday though, and the group were fun. Lovely scenery too.
