"Safely back from Amsterdam... We rode 150 miles on the tandem - 50 miles in one day! Thanks to Bike Events for a superb trip." Gus Ferguson.
"I spent last week on the Amsterdam bike ride and I just wanted to say thank you to all the organising crew for a fantastic holiday! Weather was great, cycling and scenery was superb and there was a great sense of bonhomie & good feeling amongst all the cyclists. I'll definite recommend your events & tours to my friends and, hopefully, I'll be able to join you again on future trips." A. C.
