I am writing to those who like me are neither professional riders nor young and wonder about the tour, those who are just looking to have a great time riding along with others that will motivate you to do your best.
Certainly I was not prepared a 100% for the tour, thanks to the 2 groups A and B ( I was on the B) and the sweep bus I was able to finish the first 2 days by riding the bus for the last Km. then I could do the last 2 days all of it and finish without injuries.
Looking at the pictures you can see how beautiful the landscape of Cyprus is in the spring, the excellent weather we had, the hotels we stayed, the food, all made it such an experience you would like to repeat year after year, provided your health will permit.
Certainly you end the tour motivated to get the next time in the group A and promise yourself will train for it.
I have no complains only good things to say about the organizers and the volunteers and wish many of us do realize that some even had little sleep just to make sure we would ride safely the next day, we also need to jump into helping as well, not only giving our recommendations but rather being active part of those volunteers for 2011. This way you will not only enjoy the Tour of Cyprus but will feel proud of being part of those making this event someday an internationally renowned one.
I hope next year we will see more people in my category (over 60 years old) as well as more ladies, this way we will be able to share the excitement of this wonderful experience.
