By July with summer in full swing I’m starting to get itchy tyres and feeling the need to be out on the bike enjoying the sunshine. What better way to scratch that itch than to spend 10 days exploring some of the best mountain roads Europe has to offer? Well actually, the only way I can think of is to do it with 15 like-minded bikers who I can share a beer and swap stories with in the evening!
That’s exactly what Magellan’s 2017 Austrian Tyrol and Swiss Alps tour provided. Simplicity and a lack of hassle characterises the entire process. Once you’ve chosen from the broad selection of trips available online all you need to do next is dream about your coming holiday! Everything is planned and arranged quietly in the background, your only headache is what to pack. Or if you’re lucky which bike to bring!
