This trip was awesome. One of the best cycling holidays I've done. The contrast in the scenery that you cycle through is amazing; mountains, passes, vineyards, the coast fabulous. Wine tasting at the end of a ride. Oh and the penguins!
Great cycling, quite hilly but stunning, very varied. Great accommodation and very varied. Loved the penguins.
