Mechanical, medical, moral! Everything that I needed was there, I couldn't have asked for more. The team kept me & my bike going for 10 days.
Mandy, Wiltshire
I can’t recommend this highly enough, it will be the most amazing experience of your life. The organization is superb, you hardly have to do anything other than ride your bike. The continued involvement of the Wates family was so important, really emphasising the charitable element to the event. Wish I could go again next year. The final ingredient to perfection was the great social atmosphere on the trip.
Donald, Edinburgh
Amazing! Really bloody amazing!!! I can't tell people enough how well organised and run it was. It was one of the best and hardest things I've ever done and left me with some brilliant memories. I still can't get over how hard working yet friendly, warm, funny, interesting and engaging the staff were.
John, London
Just a note to thank you all for your superb running of the TdF, a truly outstanding combination of efficiency and fun.
Mark, London
I’ve had a few days back in the office now with some time to reflect on last week and what an amazing experience it was. Without a doubt it’s the best organised sporting event I’ve ever taken part in. It wasn’t just the logistics though, it was also the attitude of the entire team who clearly worked their socks off the whole time and must have been as exhausted as us but were always smiling and giving us encouragement.
Claire, London
Tremendous fun, challenging, enjoyable, unbelievably well organised with a great atomsphere. Do it!
Phil, London
You will be amazed by the love, support, dedication and camaraderie engendered by this event.
Peter, South East
It was a truly wonderful experience. I loved every minute. I cannot be positive enough about the event. I would recommend it to anyone who has even a passing interest in cycling. Thanks to absolutely everyone who was involved in putting it together, and to the Wates family for setting up such an extraordinary event. Sweeping magisterially into a French town at speed is worth every bit of the suffering needed to keep the pace...
Glen, Sussex
Loved having people affected by the charities work come out on various stages and talk/cycle with us.
Graeme, Scotland
Probably my single greatest sporting achievement. Not only did I make great friends and see beautiful scenery, but also I achieved something I never thought I would. Now I cannot wait to keep cycling!
Lucy, Birmingham
I left my new best friends at Bordeaux and just wanted to thank you and your whole team for another hugely enjoyable, satisfying & immaculately well organised time with you. I don't think I stopped smiling once.
Ian C, London
The organisation and staff of TDF have been incredible - how on earth they manage to pull off an event like this and keep EVERYONE happy is beyond me. Without exception they work thanklessly to all hours of the day and night to see to our every need. They are the most caring & professional group of people I think I have ever come across. To everyone in TDF - a HUGE thank you for making this the most unbelievable experience, one that has changed me and I will always remember. I WILL see you again.
Paul, London
Amazing, so well organised and friendly. I felt welcomed and helped through it all. The support was truly breath taking. I know people who would love the experience.
Paul, Petersfield
The charity aspect was important and I really appreciated the visit to the Winch: it helped me to explain the trip to potential sponsors. The event itself? Challenging, rewarding, really well organised, an amazing thing to do!

Wow! Wow! Wow! Congratulations! That was the most brilliant event I have ever been part of.
Carol, Newcastle
It is a truly amazing event - one of the best things I have ever participated in!
Timothy, London
The whole experience was just fantastic. But above all the thoroughness and passion you gave to every detail of the ride. The signing, the feeding, the accommodation – just perfect.
Luke, Portsmouth
I have done various Etapes over the years but this gave me a far wider appreciation of the Tour de France, which is more than just being about flogging yourself on the iconic mountain climbs (though it does include that!). It was made all the more achievable by the excellence of the support team and the camaraderie of my fellow riders on the road.
John G, Kent
I liked the fact I met the family and friends of the trust, and got to meet people who benefited from the money. That helped as a motivation, and with the fundraising.
Olly, London
Great adventure. Grab the opportunity whilst you can because it's simply not available anywhere else. Enjoy it and realise exactly what you have achieved after you complete it.
Marianne, Scotland
A very well organised event on a very human scale. It's a tough event but the support from the team and the riders is fantastic. Everyone was out to help each other.
John, Ayrshire
As I sit at home typing this I'd love to be still on the road not back at home! Maybe I'll find the time to be a lifer one day. I felt hugely privileged to be a part of it all.
Clare, London
We will never forget it. It’s amazing what you can do with will power and team support.
Team FT, London
One of the best things that I have done on or off the bike.
David, Temporarily in Surrey!
I have to say it has been one of the greatest experiences I have ever had, on and off the bike, and that is a testament to the obvious passion and dedication the TDF team put into this event.
John B, Manchester
It was simply the best thing I have ever done....... A real life highlight.
Tony, Edinburgh
Fantastic. Highly organised, challenging, inclusive and rewarding.
Aidan, London
The superb organisation, fantastic support on the road and the heart-warming camaraderie of the Tour de Force peleton make it the one of the the most amazing amateur cycling events that you can do. Enrich your life by joining in!
Jeremy, London
Route signing was spectacularly good. Absolutely first class.
