We have rides every day with like minded people based on the itinerary above. You can however choose to just join some of the rides so if you prefer not to ride every day, or prefer to self guide some days to keep the costs lower, we can organise that for you. You are also free to join up with the trip on any day you wish and for as long as you want.
