P Clark – Raid Massif Central

Best raid route yet. Day 5 was epic. This route has everything: climbs, descents, TT sections, views, landscapes and great (traffic free) road surfaces. I finally fell in love with cycling after 20 years of trying.

Sharon and Tim are excellent guides. Nothing is too much trouble and they work their socks off to ensure everyone has the best possible experience. Their hard work ensures that the group is cohesive and ultimately has fun.

I hurt more from laughing than from cycling, although that is not to dimminsih how tough this route is. I thought Corsica was hard but this route is certainly a great test. Finally, after previous Raids I have vowed never to do another. This was the first time I finished determined to return for more despite a notable lack of cycle fitness.
