Cycle tour operators - France/Italy/Spain
A bit of a vague general question, but can anyone recommend a good tour operator probably for a week next year of of European hilly/scenic riding by a group of competent club standard riders? I've been on similar in France for three years and had three great holidays. One organised by Cyclomundo: Geneva to the Alpe, with the Marmotte afterwards; and two organised by an independent guide, Annecy to the South coast. All have been excellent but I'm just wanting to broaden my horizons. I'm not especially taken by the Pyrenees, as I keep hearing stories of slightly less predictable weather there (I know that mountain weather is always difficult to predict!). Last year, I and a friend went to Bormio to ride the Granfondo Stelvio which was superb. Ideally, next year would be a week of A to B cycling, end up with one of the classic sportives, e.g. Maratona or Quebrantahuesos. Nearly as good would be a week in a single point, similarly ending up with a classic sportive.
