"I must just say that Gavin McDonald, our road leader, was in no small part the reason this was such a great trip. His organisation skills were only bettered by his ability on a bike. I hope to join him again in the future on another adventure".
"The route exceeded my expectations. Having cycled extensively in the Alps before, it was very refreshing not to have to think about route-planning, secure in the knowledge that the route was well thought out by cyclists, for cyclists."
Simon - Alpine Road Biking 2012
"I had the pleasure to join an Alpine trip with Rather Be Cycling last June, and it was absolutely amazing.
The trip was fun and super well organized. Cheryl and Gav are fantastic guides full of passion, and they always find a way to cheer you up, and the van was always there when we needed it.
I'll definitely do more holidays with RBC"
"I joined the RBC team for their Geneva to Venice trip. The planning and attention to detail was second to none. They had extensive knowledge of the areas we cycled through and the route was tried and tested. We were fully supported and stayed at some cracking accommodation. They are far superior to other cycle tour companies I have used and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend RBC to my cycle friends & colleagues. They offer a friendly, 5 star service"
