Hi Helen and Phil,
We would like to let you know how much we enjoyed the tour. I thought it was well structured and invaluable that we did the course over two days.
Although Denise was not taking part in the event she enjoyed the rides she did & her main goal was to climb Alp d Huez.
We also enjoyed the company of everyone in the house & Denise was in her element playing "Mother".
We enjoyed the BBQ evening especially as the Aussies took over..........they know a bit about BBQs!
We will return to Bourg again but next time without the pressure of the Marmotte.
Once again thanks to you & all your staff for all your help.
Jim & Denise xx
Hi Helen and Phil,
The cycling trip you organised really couldn’t have been any better. It offered excellent preparation for La Marmotte, in knowledgeable and enjoyable company and over superb terrain. To have cycled all the route before the event ensured there were few surprises on the day. Well done!
The assistance you offered as I struggled up to the top of the Croix de Fer on one of the recce days was most welcome – I really did need someone to hold my cycle for me at the top while I almost fell off! It was also good to cycle in the company of several very experienced road men – I learn’t a lot!
If you’re able to, please pass on my kind regards to Craig; his company was especially welcome and we both enjoyed reminiscing about climbing in the 70’s and 80’s.
Helen - thanks for all your help and support last few days for our trip. You
guys were very kind and extremely hospitable - a very warm welcome.
Wish you well with future development and we′ll follow you guys on twitter
et al with interest!
