The drop off point and the walk to get your bikes makes you think you are in a Dickens novel and have made a mistake....but you didn't - you are going to have a great time! I wish I could remember our guide's name - but I figure the nature of the job - they all must be energetic and fun - as our young man was. We road on Sunday Oct 16 in the morning. The buses were on strike and there was a HUGE sports match in town. I say this to temper our experience: The roads were empty and very quiet. It is not a marathon - we are average health in our 60s - you can ride a bike for 3 hours - and you will love it.
