2 Aussies in Greece

Posted by on Jan 8, 2019 in General | No Comments

Two Aussies went to Greece to go cycling with a Brit. It sounds a bit like the start of a bad joke, but it isn’t. The back-story. Linda had arranged to meet a friend in Switzerland to celebrate a significant birthday. I felt no pressing need to leave an Australian summer for sub-zero temperatures and […]

Tales of a Randoneur…Brevet North Evia

Posted by on Nov 20, 2018 in General | No Comments

So, here I am again, writing a blog about another one of my silly ideas. The idea this time was the Audax Brevet “North Evia”. A 200km ride with a total of 3500m of climbing. This would be on paper the hardest ride I’ve ever attempted to date. I first thought about this idea only […]

We believe that the familiarity and confidence you get from riding your own bike can really add to your cycling holiday and eliminate any doubts and niggles you may get from a hire bike.  No matter how hard the hire company tries or the standard of the bike being hired there is no guarantees that it […]
