This was our first time cycling in France and Quinten our tour leader made sure every aspect of the holiday was taken care of. Unlike Italy where there are usually plenty of cafes for drink and snack stops, there wasn't on this route in France so Quinten supplied supplied great French picnics everyday, a real treat.
