First of all, we want to say that this was the first tour of this kind for us. We're afraid Second Summer Tours has ruined our chances of ever having fun on another exotic organized bicycle tour! We had too much fun and a wonderful start to our 2005 cycling year. This tour gave us the incentive we needed to not let up on our training once the weather turned into winter.

The accommodations were everything we dreamed about! We appreciate all your efforts and those of the Penseyres to make our tour as smooth as possible from the start. The perks you included were top notch--the clothing was exceptional! The meals provided by you, the cruise, and the massages were something I'll always remember.
