A very challenging, inspiring trip. Memorable. Well-organized. I want to find a way to improve my own performance, so that I could enjoy the trips even more.
Thomson is the best in the business of high-performance bicycle trips. I have traveled with many companies in the past, but for challenging trips where the emphasis is on bicycle riding, there are none better than Thomson. The van support is excellent. In a typical Thomson tour, the clients are divided into several small groups, according to ability, with around 10 people/group. Each group has a support van and 1-2 guides. Although I have been the “lanterne Rouge” on many occasions, I have never felt that I was poorly supported, or forgotten. Many times it seems as if one is training and supported as in a professional team ! The guides are all excellent cyclists, and there are several of them riding at a time. There are enough vans on the roads to carry every single rider in a tour, unlike many other companies. I hope to do many more trips with them.
I’ve had some memorable weeks cycling with Thomson and had such high expectations of the Giro trip. They were blown away. Quite simply the best week that I’ve had on a bike - many thanks.
The trip was well organised, as was the weather; wet weather gear not used at all! There were great options to suit all abilities and tiring legs as the week progressed, though I was glad I had done some training first.
This particular trip represented many personal goals, all met in one trip. The Sella Ronda circuit was the single best day of my life on a bicycle. The others, particularly Passo dello Stelvio, were challenging and satisfying.
There is a Thompson signature, you should try to have more guide like Toni Folque….
Fabulous cycling experience, met my expectations. Thanks Thomson.
Awesome trip. Everything was super easy, except the riding!
Outstanding trip with staff who truly care about the guests. It was awesome.
Great trip! I really have to hand it to Peter to be able to change plans quickly to meet weather restraints, border guard problems, and time tables with the Giro to come up with excellent variations! Although, the Monte Padrio might not have been the best alternative to the Gavia!
