It was a personal achievement to ride long hills/mountains, the bike was ideal for the terrain and the team (Alan, Joe and Will) were excellent (caring, attentive to our needs, very experienced and incredibly well organised).
The accommodation was of a high standard with a luxury hotel to finish off with. I would add that the lunches provided were enjoyed by everyone. In fact, they became an item in themselves and something to look forward to – food appropriate for the rides, good variety and very healthy. The effort the guides made in putting them together were very much appreciated.
Day five was all-round the best day with the long climb up and then out of the gorge providing wonderful views.
I would happily ride with any of the three guides again. What better reference can you give?
Did not disappoint!
The hotel le Mas du Pont Roman, Chemin de Chateauneuf had beautiful rooms, and gave good personal service-a delightful experience. But the best was saved till last with the Hotel Les Messugues, Vence. Mont Ventoux did not disappoint and was well worth the effort. Each day offered a different experience, from the lavender fields to the Gorge du Verdon. Tour Leader Alan was excellent, and the encouragement of our guides, Will and Joe, was much appreciated.
Everything is to a very high standard!
This was my first cycling trip and it met all of my expectations and stretched me. Skedaddle were excellent at: keeping us informed keeping us safe teaching new skills providing good bikes keeping us topped up with drinks and snacks.
Thanks for a great holiday...
We will be back with a few more friends I have no doubt! The tour leader ensured everyone had a great trip and managed the dynamics of the group with great skill!
Fantastic cycling holiday...
Absolutely fantastic holiday. The hills were very challenging for me but that just added to the sense of achievement. The group I was with were a great bunch and the weather / scenery were lovely. The guides were both excellend – they were fun, interested, helpful and concerned that we got as much from the holiday as we could. I especially apprecciated encouragements at the back of the group.
We were well cared for and looked after on the trip. The Gorge Verdon was a challenging ride wth lovely scenery.
My first holiday of this kind and enjoyed the whole experience greatly! Considering the lunch was ‘on the road‘, the picnic was very good with lots of choice, far better than I presumed! There was no shortage of appropriate bars and snacks on each ride. We had a very challenging first day which set the standard for the rest of the week. Climbing Mont Ventoux was something I’ve wanted to do for many years. The Gorge de Verdon was challenging but the views and descents were spectacular. The guide leader had a very much fatherly/caring approach with a great sense of humour, a fantastic guide and guy!
I had a great time – just trying to work out if I can afford to join another tour next year! I was the least experienced in the group – but was made to feel very comfortable and given lots of instruction and help. Mont ventoux was a great experience and achievement, and definately the highlight. The Gorges de verdon was superb, asnd although I complained all the way up the last climb, the final descent was un-missable – Magnificent! I really apprecciated the pre-holiday service from Saddle Skedaddle. The last call before I left home made me feel very welcome. The holiday was a lot more money than I usually spend but I will definately try to come again.
