We were very pleased with everything on this trip. Hosts Marianne and Bengt were so nice and accommodating. Nice accommodation. Plentiful and wonderful breakfast with, among other things, homemade sourdough bread. The routes were given a clear and interesting description for each day's cycling. The lunches and dinner that were included were delicious and were picked up at fresh well-run restaurants. Everything was topped off with the guided tour to Vinga and the glorious weather all three days. Amazingly, we all liked sex. Mvh Ingrid & Co
