"The leaves will probably be turning with cool weather setting in by the time your feet touch US soil & read this thank you card!  Andy & I wanted to thank you for making our trip to France such a wonderful time." - Anita & Andy

"I loved the routes you chose and the fact that you still like to search out new areas.  Your superior riding skills and strength are clear, but what impressed me is that you LOVE to ride, to climb high and descend fast.  That spirit was important to the group.  I also liked how you embraced the French culture and values.  The small villages we stayed at were wonderful, an escape from city life, a taste of alpine ambience.  I had a sensational experience." - Dan
