"Wahoo! We just came back from our Pedals, Pints & Pubs Tour and had so much fun… we booked it again for next year. John and Sara - thank you! You took such great care of all of the details for us. Your choices for food and accommodations were spot on. We simply had to ride and have fun. Loved it."
