    "Spent an incredible two weeks touring the Alps. This was my first Euro riding experience and I was delighted. The riding and scenery was top notch. There was just enough ride time to be totally stoked without being exhausted at night. Off the bike I met a lot of great people, had great beer and food and definitely recommend it to any serious rider."
