Here are just a few of the things that people have said to us after their Trailbrakes biking holiday!
The c2c with you guys surely was a highlight of my summer too, and I'm already planning next years adventures, including a 293 km one-day road race in early july. That will be great training for a c2c somewhere later in the summer ;-)
Hi Peter, I am back in OZ after a fabulous trip to France, UK and USA, but the highlight was our ride through the Lake District to the North Sea. And the reason must come back to your organisation of our ride.The service you provided was second to none and the accommodation you arrranged could not have been better.
Pete and Christine, we are still talking about our trip while getting in some great single track in Colorado this summer. I think Arnie and I are both stronger as a result of the ride across Scotland. You two did an excellent job and we will always remember the trip.
Hi Christine, thanks for making our little adventure enjoyable and hassle free! It was great to know you were about had we needed you. Thanks again and we'll be in touch when we come up with another idea for a little biking adventure!
The whole weekend was just brilliant, from the very efficient - and patient - pick up to the bubbly on the beach at Tynemouth. Your organisation was great and the way you planned the perfect weather for us was amazing. Getting to the top of those hills and having such awesome views made it much easier! Thanks from us all.
Dear Christine, Thank you for the fantastic holiday. It seemed as important to you, as us, for us to have a fabulous time. You were accommodating and imaginative when rain spoiled Plan A. The interesting conversation made us see and appreciate Scotland in a way which we otherwise wouldn't have.
I could go on and on about what a fantastic time we had. Emily and I are already looking forward to our next trip. Thanks again for everything. We can’t wait to come back.
...for us it was a wonderful experience to bike the West Highland Wayhey. We miss the Scottish scenery already, together with all the friendly people we met. We would like to thank you both for this trip. We'd never expected to get such a good service. Christine really helped us out great so a big thank you to her and you!
We had a fantastic 4 days and the sun shone on us! Your wonderful organization and helpful suggestions really sorted us out – especially as we'd left it all to the last minute!! I loved your friendly, personal response and we would definitely recommend you to anyone :0) Huge thanks for making our 3rd attempt come true!!
The trip was absolutely wonderful, very well planned and the route was well chosen. Sandy and I appreciated a lot your hospitality and your caring to every detail. We hope you can continue your business and make it bigger so more people can enjoy the nice countryside in Scotland.
Dear Pete, in the rush to catch the boat last Saturday I did not have the opportunity to say goodbye to you. I would like to thank you (and Bob and Derek) for the most wonderful time we had last week in Scotland, it certainly was a magnificant trip and one of the best we ever made!
Just a quick note to add my thanks to those of Kerry etc. For the faintest hearted of the group the trip was surprisingly fantastic. Your help and endless good humour were much appreciated and a major contribution to the quality of the trip. I am going to try and persuade my husband to do the Northumberland trip which won't require a trip up Mount Keen (presumably??!). Thanks again Pete.
Thank you so much for your guidance and for the awesome pictures...we could not have had a nicer time and we were sooo fortunate to have you leading the way....I hope your business continues to build and grow, and that you'll have fun doing it.
We loved the weekend Pete. The stuff you gave us was great. If you ever need a recommendation of your service tell people to contact me.
It was a fab weekend, definitely worth it. I can't wait to go to Kirkhill this weekend, try out my new skills on my local trail.
Hi there Pete, just wanted to say thanks for the trip, it was thoroughly enjoyable and has allowed me to re-light my enthusiasm for biking. Whilst I might thank you for that I am sure the wife won't!!!
We really had the most amazing time with you in Scotland, and you, as our guide, exceeded all expectations. Truly! The attention to detail, the excellent maps and itineraries and accomodations -- it was all just perfect. And we really felt that we just totally lucked out in finding someone we'd actually want to hang out with, biking trip or no.
Pete, Just to say a huge thank you for a fantastic weekend. Charlotte and I as absolute beginners were a bit nervous at tackling the trails at 7 stanes but your expert guidance and one to one coaching really reassured us. We had tried a few companies to try and find what we were looking for but as soon as I talked to you I felt like you were willing to listen to what our requirements were and made it so easy with your one stop shopping!
Hi Pete, big thanks for your help over the weekend, it was quality! Hope to catch you again soon, we'll be in touch about future trips.
Hi Pete: I want to thank you for an exceptional adventure. The venues for riding and your company exceeded all expectations. The accommodations were superb. Your keen understanding of mountain biking, knowledge of the trails, and logistical planning were oustanding. You set and achieved a high standard for professionalism. A real privilege to have the experience with you.
Hi Christine and Pete, Thank you for the excellent trip to Scotland. We are all happily returned home and still in Scotland in our minds. We enjoyed this week very much. The route planning was excellent and weather was perfect. The trip was very nice and we really are thankful to Christine for your patience and care for us and our bicycles.
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and Christine for a great trip which I will remember always and will hopefully repeat or do something similar with you guys next year, or maybe earlier!
Our trip to Scotland was truly one of the best experiences we've ever had, much thanks to you guys. The boys had a blast on the mountain bikes. They saw things they had never seen before as far as mountain biking. I honestly can't wait to come back to Scotland.
Thanks again for a wonderful trip through Scotland! We enjoyed it very much!!! And many thanks for the really good organisation and the support during the ride! You did a really fantastic job!!!!!!
Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for making our challenge (holiday!!!) a really enjoyable time. I know I speak for all the girls when I say we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Even Angela with her black eye was speaking fondly about the Scottish Highlands! Your company and mechanical expertise was very much appreciated. I hope that we've not put you off having other female groups!!!
Just wanted to say a mammoth thank you for the awesome time you showed me on the trails, and off them too (mmm ice cream!!!) I had an absolute ball - and really feel like i achieved loads of confidence on the trails that we took. I couldn't have gotten a more personalised service if i'd tried. Thanks again Christine - you rock!
Hi Pete, Thank you, the trip was great fun! Just finished washing and cleaning the clothes :) Beautiful sceneries, personal challenge, great food - everything even exceeding expectations.
Hi, Pete, we are very happy and satisfied about our cycling in Scotland. Of course we'd like to repeat this one next year. We'd like to thank you for your patience with us and it was a very very exciting trip!! So we are inviting you now to come to Latvia!
Morning Pete, We had a great time - perfect weather, great mountain biking and good company. Thanks for sorting out the accommodation, all were good and two were exceptional!
We really had the most amazing time with you in Scotland Pete and you, as our guide, exceeded all expectations. Truly! The attention to details, the excellent maps, itineraries and accommodations - it was all just perfect.
Back in harness here, knee deep in hassle but at least my legs are still pedalling! Thanks again for everything, I had a fantastic time and look forward to more.
Christine, just a quick note to say thanks for a fantastic holiday. It was well planned and went very smoothly. We all enjoyed each of the days which were nicely varied and stretched us just the right amount. The technical section over the Pentland hills was particularly good.
Thanks for the great service - it was your responsiveness that led me to make the booking with you and you lived up to that with the efficient and effective service provided - not least the celebration beer at the end of our adventure! I and all the lads are looking forward to seeing you again sometime.
Hi Pete, just a quick message to say thanks again for a top weekend, not sure i would have made it without your encouragement. Finally made it home last night at 11 o clock, my girlfriend thinks I am a hero! Thanks for all your help, I hope to see you again.... but not until I can feel my legs again!!!
Hi Pete and Christine, thank you both for the great cycle tour we could enjoy last week. It was a very nice experience in all senses. It was the first time we cycled without carrying our own luggage and we really enjoyed it. Maybe it's the age...Christine did a great job fixing everything, even surprised us with a bottle of wine at the end in Edinburgh. It tasted really good after the wet day on the road and two times flat tyre. We will without any hesitation recommend this tour and your company to any one of our friends or whoever asks us.
Just wanted to let you know we had a great time and all the arrangements were faultless. Guest houses were great. Planning the next one already, possibly the Way of the Roses in September. Many thanks for a flawless trip.
Hi Peter, Just wanted to say a ‘HUGE’ Thank you for the excellent organization and planning on our Way of the Roses trip. We all had a fantastic time and will definitely give you a call when we are planning next year’s trip. Once again Many Thanks.
We had a fantastic time, thank you. The tranquillity on getting off the Corran ferry was so striking – it was like taking a journey on the tardis and stepping off into another world. So, thanks for sorting everything for us. We had a blast and we’ll definitely do another cycling holiday.
Hi Peter, I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for your support on our ride. We had a blast, even the wet weather on the last day could not dampen the fun we had. Great route, although we sometimes found it tricky to follow (!) and accommodation were excellent. Good luck with the business and hopefully we will see you in the future…
