From picking up the leaflet at the NEC last Autumn to heading out there last week – what to say? I have been motorbiking one year so this was big adventure. What a great team. Collected from the airport, accommodated at a lovely villa overlooking Nerja just below the Sierra Nevada, where the pool (and the disco lighting if you want it!) offered welcome relief after the day’s riding. Then there was Sarah’s baking knocking “Bake-off” into the shade. Pete on hand with kit, breakfast, and fantastic northern philosophy. Thanks. Edward, my guide and the owner of Redtread, never gave me room to doubt I was up to what we did. There were a couple of tumbles, but he and his team, and particular thanks to Digger and Kurt, who scraped me up a couple of times, were fantastic. I never imagined we would do what we did – that I could do what we did. All in all this is a fabulous team, embedded in the area, the people, the language, with support and knowledge galore, with kit and advice that leaves nothing to chance. Such a fantastic trip. Thanks to you all. I hope to return at some point and unhesitatingly and unreservedly recommend you all.
