Level of Riding Experience required.
We try and cater for all skill levels and can change our routes to cater to your skill level and ensure the most fun for all, but we have to remind everyone that we are not a training or learning school and expect everyone to have a certain level of riding ability.
Some of the routes we use can be quite technical with steep ascents and descents with many tight twists and bends and could be classified as requiring an intermediate or advanced skill level.
Also, it is quite common for other riders to be on the tour and as we have an obligation for everyone to enjoy the tour we therefore insist that everyone has the required experience below in order not to slow down the group.
Be able to ride at the national speed limit, 90 km/h (60 mph) or as signed on open country roads, 120 km/h (75 mph) on motorways.

Comfortable with twisty bends, curves and leans
Comfortable with steep ascents, descents and mountainous roads

If we feel that your riding ability is not of the standard required listed above and have not informed us, and you are a hazard to yourself or other riders, or cause resentment by continually slowing down the group, then we reserve the right to cancel your tour with no refund or compensation, or provide a separate guide depending on availability at a cost to yourself, or endeavour to provide an amicable solution for all parties.
