Absolutely perfect! I just completed the Pirinexus route with my wife and we used Eat Sleep Cycle for bikes, accommodations, baggage transport, and navigation. I cannot say enough how easy they made our trip. I scheduled the vacation from thousands of miles away and it was seamless. Every detail has been considered by this fantastic group of passionate cyclists and it’s clear they want to provide the best, and they do! I encourage anyone considering a cycling vacation to consider the Pirinexus and use Eat Sleep Cycle as your guide. It was one of the many pleasures of our trip was to work with and meet such a wonderful group. See you soon!Greg McDonaldAbsolutely perfect!
Everything was brilliant: organisation, great communication before and during the trip, fantastic people, lovely kit. Recommend these guys without hesitation. They are so passionate about what they do, and it shows! Loved it.AligilanBest Bike Holiday Ever!
Peter (Eat Sleep Cycle's gravel guide) was also a great companion on my gravel day, I had a lot of fun exploring the back roads and it was a pleasure chatting to him over the course of the day. The team at Eat Sleep Cycle genuinely have something for everyone, from people looking for a hard weeks riding to those looking to spend a few days enjoying the weather, the food & wine and exploring the region. I couldn't recommend them highly enough.Chris CGreat set up and wonderful people
