June 2022 – I cannot recommend ‘More than 21 Bends’ enough. I have just returned from a week in their care, guiding me around the cols and climbs of the Alpe d’Huez region, and I am already scrutinising their website for the next trip! Fantastic routes, fantastic accommodation and fantastic customer care. Superb local knowledge and expert cycling back-up made the holiday fool-proof. I should mention that I was part of a group of nine riders, ranging from club-level experts through to a total beginner on an eBike, who was there for the holiday as much as the cycling, with a varied mix of cycling ability in between. Half were keen cyclists, the other half on eBikes to ensure they enjoyed the experience too. The team at ‘More than 21 Bends’ took this in their stride and ensured that every one of us made the climbs, finished the routes, and came back the next morning ready for more. Perhaps the best recommendation I can give is that the beginner on the eBike has now returned to the UK and is taking up cycling full-time, including splashing out on a brand new bike! The experience offered by ‘More than 21 Bends’ deserves five stars on any review – and if six stars were available I’d give them six!
