My wife and I, age 49 and holding, found Bruce through Trip Advisor and then went directly to his site to review the many different rides that he offers. I am in full agreeement with many of the other reviews posted. Bruce was personable, flexible, easy to reach - even once we arrived in Paris, and a pure delight to ride with.
Our vacation was based completely in Paris. Our 8 days were spent in the City with the exception of a bike ride through the grounds of Versailles with another tour company, that included 26 other riders. Our ride with Bruce was much more personal as it was just my wife, Bruce and I. We chose the Fountainbleau - Barbizon and Milly-le-Foret route which was 40km in length. The timing and pace of the trip could not have been better.
Being out of the hustle and bustle of the City and in the very colorful, diverse and historic countryside was so very relaxing and beautiful. So unique and a wondereful contrast from the city life.
What I appreciated most about Bruce was his respect for time - allowing plenty of it. Never feeling rushed, Bruce allowed us to stop for a cafe au'lait whenever. We took advantage of this in Fountainbleau and Barbizon. He allowed us to roam the grounds of Fountainbleau at our own pace. He encouraged me to stop and take pictures whenever I wanted and even suggested a shot when we were on our last hill allowing a glorious downhill view of one small village. There was no set time on when we would have lunch and Bruce had enough Chateaus to choose from whenever our mood struck and we were ready to pull off to eat.
Bruce's ride description was accurate in distance and effort level. He even offered to extend our ride while keping in mind the train schedule to get s back into Paris.
I have told everyone that I can that this was the highlight of my trip. I would ride with Bruce over and over again should I be fortunate to return to Paris.
