Eat Sleep Cycle organised London Dynamo's annual overseas trip to the Girona Bike Festival (culminating in the Gran Fondo Girona) in June 2018 and looked after 45 of us beautifully. We were looked after perfectly and had fantastic guides, routes, accommodation and restaurants laid on - ESC were super-efficient, knowledgeable, friendly and charming (and even dug-out a couple of Pro-Tour riders to keep us company).

Eat Sleep Cycle organised our successful trip to Bormio to ride Gran Fondo Stelvio. ESC organised a team support van for airport transfers, excellent hotel choice, looked after the bikes, ferried us around to rides, ran errands when things broke or were forgotten and did a brilliant job supporting us on day of event with the guide working as a “domestique” support us with drinks on the bikes given the closed roads.

We had a challenging ride at The Stelvio Santini Gran Fondo! Eat Sleep Cycle organised everything and made it a truly memorable weekend. Our ride leader, Knut, could not have been more helpful. Thank you ESC!
