FROM THE BLOG
We’re at home with our young kids so we’ve been attempting to relearn some basic academics and spending a lot of time in the kitchen. We always love to read and we have some family and friends who are at home plowing through their reading lists. We love to read when we can so we’d like to share some of our favorite books with you in case they are of interest to you.
We put together this little video of you guys hoping to bring a smile to your face. Looking through all the old pictures definitely cheered us up a little!
We want to know: how are you? Are you being safe and following all the recommended guidelines? Are you checking in on your family and friends that might need a little extra support now? But most importantly...how are you? Are you taking care of yourself? Eating well and staying active. It can be so hard in trying times but it’s critical to your wellbeing. Your mental and physical wellbeing. We’ve been eating well (trying lots of new recipes) and of course we’ve been staying on the bike by utilizing our indoor trainers.

Jamie and Joy’s low key, friendly and flexible approach made riding in the Alps an amazing experience. They did a great job of helping me determine what would maximize my experience. If I wanted an easier day, they h… Read more
“The team at the Outfitter Bicycle Tours put together an amazing holiday that I’ll never forget. We had great places to stay/eat and we were always in the thick of the action. The tour rides catered for riders of all levels and we somehow managed to visit my favourite team on a tour ride! I’ll be back to do it all again soon.”
“WOW! WHAT AN INCREDIBLE ADVENTURE!!! Jamie and Joy Gilpin – along with their staff members – created one of the most memorable bike adventures we’ve ever experienced. My husband and I have had the very good fortune of biking all over the world, which should underscore how well planned and organized Outfitter Bicycle Tours is! Every detail was considered, from the exceptional accommodations at eve… Read more
“I was able to watch Tour de France action when I wanted and ride the beautiful roads and passes of France when I wanted, and the flexibility to do either was what I most appreciated. Conquering Mont Ventoux, Col d Galibier, Col d Semnoz, Col d Serene, Alpe de Huez, riding alongside Andy Schleck and Jens Voigt on their rest day, and 40+ mph descents that went on for miles are just some of the hi… Read more
“The support was incredible – so nice to have a car on the route for water, and so we did not have to lug gear for weather changes. With all the elevation, this was comforting. Exceptional mechanical support. We did not expect this kind of on-road support!”
“We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this tour – well thought out bike routes, very good hotel accommodations (nice, clean rooms and substantial breakfasts), and excellent choice of breweries and brewery restaurants (including brewery tours when available). It was obvious that a great deal of attention to detail had been given to this tour and customer service and client satisfaction was of ut… Read more
