Hiya, I'm Joe, I'm one of the co-founders of Brake the Cycle and am delighted to share this experience with you. Embercombe is such a magical place and the line up we've got for you is going to be fantastic. Can't wait to see you there!
Would I recommend Brake the Cycle? Yes, yes, yes...everything about this trip was perfect: - the crew: a wonderful group of experienced cyclists who somehow managed to juggle it all... - the group: like-minded and friendly.. - the FOOD: incredibly delicious homemade, vegan, organic food - the farm: the venue was spectacular: beautiful, natural, isolated and the accommodation was second to none. - the ride: My first long cycle was fantastic! - the yoga: we were spoiled with 4 long yoga classes...my lack of soreness on Sunday was definitely due to the post-cycle yoga. Still riding the mental and emotional high from this weekend... I promise you won't regret it!
