This tour was a lot of fun! Our tour guide Chad was sporty, funny and above all pleasant. He was very good at explaining the highlights and details. The day before our tour it had rained very hard which made it more difficult to cycle. Despite this, Chad managed to lead the tour on better roads. We would do this tour all over again. Thank you Chad for this great experience!!!
