Is there anything else you would like to add?
They'll be plenty of places where you'll be exposed to soft/medium sell techniques of merchandise and sometimes when you are in a captivated environment e.g. on a 1 hour small boat journey. Also don't believe it when a family hosting a tour in their UNESCO protected century old house earnestly say a set of eg embroidery was done by their grandma. You'll see tons of the same stuff in the next town. They are all trying to make a living in any way they can.
The cycle support was surprisingly luxury. Four staff; cycle leader, cycle back-man (for maintenance and to push the last person up the hill where needed), and a driver for each vehicle (passenger coach and equipment/bike van). The vehicles were either following us or just a little ahead where the driver would stand and show you a turning point at a junction and stop traffic. We also stop every 20km (ish) for short rest/water stops. Bags can be kept on the coach so only need to carry water bottle and camera. They are relaxed, go fast if you want and/or stop if you want to take photos.
No need to take too many clothes; there are at least 2 laundry opportunities (that is not the hotel). The locals are used and the clothes are ready the next day. The quality is good (technical cycle clothing friendly), smells good and the price is based on weight but much cheaper than using the hotel laundry.
There is the opportunity to leave stuff behind to make space for souvenirs in your luggage case. Things like cycle helmet and clothes were happily accepted to be passed onto local cycle clubs and charities.
