WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT IBT
Graeme and Antoinette Blank, Australia
Hard to believe it is 1 year since we had our ride with you (which remains a highlight of our trip!). I have been thinking of you and Jodie recently, particularly in light of the Covid 19 pandemic and the difficulties it must place on you. I hope you and your families are all safe and well.
I was able to do my ride in Tanzania and got home a week before we had mandatory 14 day isolation for overseas arrivals! The trip was fabulous – 1600km in 14 days and we climbed about 14000m as well. Mostly really good paved roads but a couple of days on gravel or potholed roads. We were lucky with weather – very little rain and only wind one day and temps usually around 31-32 so not too hot. Really poor country but really beautiful people. A couple of nights were in windowless rooms in towns with no electricity. Most places had holes in the floor for toilets and a bucket of cleanish water to ‘flush’ with. Food was mostly chapati, rice, beans, an egg (poured into a pan so like an omelette but with nothing with it) and sweet tea. Perhaps most importantly we raised nearly $30,000 for the School of St Jude in Arusha, Tanzania.
Still love the idea of a ride in Italy when we are allowed to travel again.

Good afternoon Marco and Jodi
Thank you again for a super day biking in Tuscany....everyone is happily talking about it as we relax and share a glass of vino!
Thanks also to Leonardo and Graham......adding a fellow countryman to the group was very thoughtful!
Until next time....
Ciao from us all!

I'm not sure if you remember us, but my husband and I did your downhill to San Gimignano tour a little over a month ago. I just wanted to thank you again for an absolutely amazing experience. We visited multiple cities and did several wonderful tours during our stay in Italy, but the bike tour was by far the best and the highlight of our entire trip. Thank you so much for being so warm and friendly and sharing so much knowledge of Florence and Tuscany with us. My husband and I are already discussing when we can go back to do the bike tour in the autumn as you suggested!
Thank you again for all you did to make that such a memorable experience for us.

Ciao Marco and Jodie,
We are back home and now would like to thank you and let you know what a great, memorable experience we had on our Tuscan bike tour.
The expert advice and bikes we rode were perfect. We loved the bike tour showing the beautiful Tuscan countryside, the stops along the way and the winery we visited.
Thank you so much for the wonderful friendly support and experience. The restaurant, winery and other stops you selected made our experience extra special.
We would strongly recommend others, no matter what your bike skills are, to a single or multi day bike tour.
We are looking forward to doing another bike tour with you soon.
From your California riders Randy and Susan
