Super trip with plenty of background information. Our guide always had the best spots in mind regarding coffee, lunch or a very much deserved ice ccremeclose to the end of our about 30-35 miles and 6 hours trip. Bikes are good. Give them a proper ride on the yard before the tour actually starts to check the shift gear, tire pressure,... as you will ride all day long and you want to be comfortable. No need to bring water bottles, as there is always a chance during the trip to get one in the neighborhoods. Don't forget sunscreen! Will come back for another trip!
