Testimonials

 

Katherine Gale:
Four Days in the Alps – New challenges, New adventures, New achievements, New friends. #BiaAlpineEscape
The trip included everything I expected it too, and so much more. I never knew four days on a bike could teach me so much………….
I learned to dismantle and reassemble my bike,
to travel light and only take what you need,
to read the route and prep accordingly,
to start every day with a good coffee,
to appreciate the quiet, well-kept, roads of France,
to keep well fuelled,
to push and pull through every pedal,
to celebrate a 6% gradient as a recovery,
to use the right gearing makes all the difference,
to use my brakes and my body position when descending,
to celebrate each day with people who shared the experience,
I learned to look up and appreciate the breath-taking surroundings and not just focus on getting to the top, but to ENJOY THE RIDE.
My Mantra = Head down, drive forward, but don’t forget to look up and breathe.
The Mountains provide you with a sense of realisation, a sense of how insignificant some things in life can be and how real life can feel. The consideration of there being no limits.
It was me versus the mountain – but it was a team effort to get to the top.
One day I’m saying Yes to a cycle trip, the next I’m standing at the top of the Galibier with the greatest sense of achievement. #BiaAlpineEscape.
Thanks again for an awesome few days.
