We had such a lovely day with Alasdair biking through the Cotwolds. The quality of the bikes was excellent and our guide supported all of our needs including providing snacks, water, gloves and glasses. The pace of the tour was perfect and we enjoyed chatting with him during a coffee break as well as lunch. We covered a lot of ground and saw some fabulous sites. Highly recommended to spend a day off the beaten path with a wonderful guide!!
