'I had THE most wonderful time even though I'm not a road cyclist. Hotels were excellent, one blew me away. First - the intro day was hilly. Routes were mainly rural and bike routes . There were some navigational issues but I averaged 30-35 miles per day in 25-30 degrees, I set the pace and could stop when and where I wanted to admire the view - the countryside was glorious.'
