Most Inspirational Moment
No single moment, but I was inspired by the personal stories of some members of our group. Their determination to enjoy life to its fullest was indeed inspiring.
Thoughts on Group Leader
Rita and Dinis were an excellent and charming team. Rita stepped in at the last minute as the original guide took ill so her leadership was particularly remarkable-never a wrong turn, and a good level of knowledge about local history, sights and culture. And local restaurants ! Dinis was always on hand to ensure the bicycles were well maintained, and his al fresco lunches were a highlight of the trip.
Advice for Potential Travellers
A couple of points 1. this trip is probably correctly rated overall as Leisurely/Moderate as most of it is flat, but be aware that there is a testy, but short, hill on the afternoon of 3rd day of cycling, and on the final day also some short sharp inclines. Nothing to trouble a reasonably fit cyclist though ( I'm on the wrong side of 70 and managed ok ). 2.On this trip Exodus provided a pannier bag at the front of each bicycle with generous space for a mac and other useful items to carry with you whilst cycling.
This was a highly enjoyable and memorable trip-if it is on your radar then do it, you won't be disappointed.
