“The place was easy to find, the bikes were all ready to go and the map was really clear. The trail had beautiful views and the cycleway was great for me (I hadn’t ridden a bike in years) but still enjoyable for my husband who regularly rides. The market was a fantastic end to the morning and the team member who picked us up was really nice and told us about lots of other things we could do in the area. Was a great experience and would definitely do it again.  Thanks!”  Nadia – Hamilton – February 2016
