The tour took us on quiet roads, through great wineries and had us put up at a pleasant hotel/inn. The rides were great! We were able to self divide into a faster group and a more leisure group. UDC supported both groups with a guide and the support van. Loved it! The organizers take the time to ensure quality food, lodging and riding happen...they accomplished all of the above. Sign up and expect everything you hope it to be.
