I would like to send a very big thank you for the wonderful trip to see the Vuelta al Pais Vasco with Allan Davis Cycling Tours.

Dear Alby,

I would like to send a very big thank you for the wonderful trip to see the Vuelta al Pais Vasco with Allan Davis Cycling Tours. I really appreciated your warm and generous hospitality and wonderful organization!   So many parts of the trip were very special and I congratulate you on providing a top flight experience that I will remember for a long time to come..!!
I loved the accomodation- with our beautiful design hotel in Bilbao facing the stunning Guggenheim museum, with amazing rooftop breakfasts.  And the wonderful hotel in San Sebastian was precious, with postcard views of the Atlantic and city below.   

It was a privilege to have VIP access to the race and see the riders up close before and after the stages, and I remember feeling very lucky watching one of stage finishes standing next to the accredited photographers with a perfect view to the line!  The day that you organized for me to spend in one of the Team cars was truly unforgettable!!   It was the queen stage of the race and 'our' rider was in the break and captured both the climber's jersey and sprint jersey on the day- it was so exciting to be part of.

The gastronomy in the Basque country is reknown and I have memories of numerous special dining experiences, expecially the wonderful Mirador de Ulia restaurant which ranks among the best meals that I have ever experienced.  Thank you also to your wonderful partner Maite - we loved her company and warm personality.

The rides in the Basque country were superb and it was a treat to ride with you and Enrique.    Look forward to another trip in the future!

Warm regards,

Joel
