A guests perspective….
Stage 1, Day 5:
What a journey it’s been so far. Some of us only have a few days to go. Some are going all the way to Rome in Hannibal’s footsteps. All of us are loving every minute, every hill, every vista, every descent, every espresso stop and certainly every carb-packed dinner.
We’re all here because we want more than a bike ride – we want an adventure. We want to push things a bit. We enjoy not knowing what’s round the next corner. We like dropping ourselves into a new scene and seeing what happens. Fortune favours the brave.
The cycling, through some of the most beautiful landscape many of us have seen, is what gets us up in the morning. But it’s the people that get us through each day. Whether its the perfectly-timed snack stops with Sam and Dylan or the words of encouragement, friendly rivalry and good dose of humour from our fellow riders. It’s the people that keep the legs pumping and the wheels turning. Up until a few days ago we were strangers. Now, thanks to a great journey, we’ve become friends.
With Ride & Seek you don’t just discover new places. And the learning doesn’t stop with Hannibal and his elephant-powered crusade. You find out something new about yourself and about other people too.
Not bad for a bike ride.
