The Giant Talon was a sturdy hire bike, I was quite impressed by the quality of the bike. The gears were spot on and it was a pleasure to ride. All the guides were easy to get along with and provided different levels of support for everyone on the trip. Their support with food and drinks was excellent and the selection of food was great! Steve was such a friendly guide who also had a great sense of humour and was accommodating for everyone on the ride.
I found you could truly relax and not have to think about anything other than your ride as everything from breakfast to afternoon tea was provided.
Steve was amazing...
He was so helpful, encouraging and made even the “cheeky” climbs fun(ish)! I struggled with some of the cycling but he could not have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend a Skedaddle holiday. As a novice I was very nervous, but the guides immediately put me at ease and encouraged me all the way. They were always on hand to give us tips on how to make our cycling better.
A very enjoyable weekend...
It was so nice not to have to think about where to go but just know that we would be following some great trails with fantastic scenery. Skedaddle team were excellent – very knowledgeable and helpful!
This trip could not have been better...
The riding on this trip was exceptional. Fantastic views and great climbs. All the guides were brilliant. Steve was an amazing leader and he told us so many fascinating stories during the ride about local history. They were just great people to go riding with and an absolute credit to Skedaddle. Thank you for an unforgettable weekend!
Both days were excellent!
Two days of fantastic riding. Not too easy that I felt I hadn’t achieved anything, but not too difficult that I wasn’t thoroughly enjoying myself the whole time. Awesome rides, super instructors, beautiful scenery, great camaraderie – even the weather turned out nice. Both days were excellent.
Steve was super. Great local knowledge, lots of interesting stories. Judged perfectly how hard to push us. Plus I will forever more think of monstrously steep climbs as a little bit “cheeky“.
Great couple of days!
The weather was glorious and I felt more confident as the trip went on. Both days were great!
Clare, West Midlands
Excellent venue that understood and met cycling needs, secure store, bike wash and parking. Award winning porridge! Excellent range and quality of food, snacks and refreshments to meet everyone’s requirements along the way. The routes selected were correct for the ability of the group and met expectation for the area. Good advice on terrain, hazards, technique, weather and necessary clothing equipment!
