Logistics are pretty strong. We like the meet-and-greet, pot luck etc. We like the camping and the flexibility to book a room for some of the trip. Strong pit crew. Grocery stops, coffee. Really like that you carry dishes, silverware, cups, pots, etc. We appreciate your research on notable things on the tour.
Liked freedeom to ride at our own pace and schedule and eating on our own without commitments.
Appreciated the sense of camaraderie amongst cyclists. …all for one …one for all kind of spirit. That attracts me. Loved it. Thanks for the memories!
I like the whole thing... the group experience is important, the riding challenge is important, the support is vital, cooking together is fun, going to a restaurant together after a long ride is wonderful, and the scenery and the villages we pass through are delightful.
