    Cycling the Cilento and Amalfi coast was beautiful , challenging and thoroughly enjoyable. Our guides Paolo and Giovanni did an excellent job of taking care of us in every possible way. The food was magnificent and the accommodation was great. Cycling was very difficult in parts, there was some very steep sections, but we always stopped and recovered. A great trip with a great group of people, I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves to jump on a bike.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Getting to the top of the biggest climb and just enjoying the rugged beauty of the place. Cycling along the beautiful Amalfi coast road, with all it's winding and up's and down's.What did you think of your group leader?Paolo our group leader was always informative and helpful. He was a calming influence and always made you feel safe on the road. He has a passion for the beauty and history of the coast, without overdoing it.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?If you are a casual bike rider who is up for a challenge do it. It is a beautiful part of the world.Is there anything else you would like to add?I highly recommend it!

    Firstly, the bikes that we had for our week along the Amalfi coast were first class.  The whole group appreciated this, especially the lady who had hired an electric bike.It was a lovely bonus to have a pool at all but the last hotel, with our first view of the coastline from the hotel balcony absoutely stunning.  The guide was very knowledgeable and kept the group together, showing us hidden gems within the areas.And we couldn't have ordered better weather!!!What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Realising that I'd got to the top of the hardest hill of the week without thinking about it!What did you think of your group leader?Paulo was quite reserved in talking about himself but, as a leader of a group, he was excellent in sharing his local knowledge and keeping the group together.  He could, I suppose, have circled round to the back of the group more rather than always riding out front, to make sure all of the group got maximum enjoyment from the trip.On the last free day on the trip, Paulo even took a group of us walking in the forests behind Amalfi which was beautiful and which we wouldn't have found without him Do you have any advice for potential travellers?This is not a trip for those who only cycle down to the shops at home a couple of times a week - the hills are challenging and you've got to want to conquer them rather than being annoyed by their being there.  A couple of people on the trip only cycled the first day and then took up the whole of the possible recovery space for cyclists in the support vehicleIs there anything else you would like to add?The best bit about this trip was the group of cyclists with whom we cycled for the week, full of experiences from other trips and such great fun to be with.  I am hoping to do the Sardinia trip next year but I hear that the bikes used there are awful so that is putting me off.One of the main reasons that we use Exodus is the locations of trips but we also like that this is a complete package including flights, transfers, bike hire, support vehicle, guide and

    Stunning scenery, knowleagable guide and the only way (apart from walking which would take a lot longer) to see Southern Italy.  Weather was disappointing but the guide used his experience and knowledge of the area to take appropriate decisions regarding safety and overall enjoyment of the holiday.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The incredible experience of witnessing the stunning views around every corner, including the sounds and smells of the countryside (herbs, flowers and fruit) which cannot be experienced in a car.  Also the high quality (and quantity) of the local food and wine which were incredibly good value in an area that I thought would be expensive.What did you think of your group leader?Lievan acted as the perfect guide as well as translator and local area expert on this trip (with the advantage of him being an archeologist).  His calm, professional approach and knowledge of the area gave us information/history that lazy people like myself would have had to research to find and also provided much needed breaks on those uphill climbs to point out a landmark or places of interest!!  Lieven was great company during the trip and his support in time of need (searching for medical attention on a bank holiday and acting as interpretor) was very much appreciated.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Be prepared for the uphill climbs (take your spds/cycling shoes to take the strain off your quads) and make sure you are experienced in cycling on busy roads as it can be quite nerve racking when a coach comes round one of those tight bends in front of/behind you.The first morning included a challenging 10kms climb in the rain!!  The other days also consisted of several climbs (or 'small inclines' as described by our guide).  A good level of fitness is required to keep together as a group, however, the back up van is always close by to assist if necessary. Make sure you take adequate layers/warm weather clothes (chilly in the evening) and waterproof jacket for cycling and sightseeing as we did experience a high level of rain on our particular trip.   Is there anything else you would like to add?Don't expect five star hotels.  The hotels were very basic and at best 3*.  No baths (except on the first night when we were upgraded due to the hotel being empty), no duvets only sheets and one blanket (we had to request heating and extra blankets to take the chill/damp feeling off the room.  Also make sure your bags are easy to transport and not too heavy as there are no porters and you will be expected to climb the stairs with your bags and transfer them to the van.  Having said that due to an injury (fall on the first day) I personally got help from a couple of knights in shining armour!!

    An excellent week, despite some torrential rain on 3 of the days.  The timetable had enough flexibility to accommodate changes of plan and Lieven the guide kept us motivated throughout the long climbs.  Hard work was rewarded with spectacular views and wonderful photo opportunities.  What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Getting to the top of some relentless cimbs still on my bike.  If I had seen the climb beforehand, I might not have believed that I could do it!  The blues and turquoises of the sea at different points was amazing.What did you think of your group leader?Excellent.  Very responsive to changes in weather and very conscious of safety on wet, slippery roads and busy traffic areas.  Bonded really well with the group and was a mine of local information.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Train well and go looking for some hills to climb before you depart as there are some long switchback climbs.  Having said that the bikes are very good and you will eventually grind your way up there if you are not so fit.  Just more enjoyable to stick with the group.Is there anything else you would like to add?The Salerno to Amalfi trip could start earlier on in the day to accommodate changes in weather.  The buffalo mozzarella farm visit was ok and could probably be tagged onto the previous day.  We didn't ride at all on the transfer day which I was very grateful for as the conditions were treacherous.
