We just signed up for this trip in May, 2015 after the Cotswold's bike trip was cancelled and would like to hear from others on the trip. We are from Albuquerque, NM and have been on two previous bike trips with Road Scholar.

This will be my first bike trip but my Ken has been on several with Roadscholar in the past few years. We are from Florida and ride about 100 miles a week
Joseph Intille Mar 19, 2015 at 06:38 PM

We are also on the May 2015 program and will be staying several extra days in Verona after the trip.

Hello all. I am traveling alone and looking forward to meeting you all. I've been on several Road Scholar biking trips but non with so much free time or one that requires the use of another currency. Not sure what to think about that! Still, looking forward to meeting you all. Anne

Debby Cascarano Jul 29, 2014 at 09:31 PM

My husband, Jim, and I are flying out of Chicago on American Airlines to Zurich on Aug 27th and will meet everyone in Innsbruck Aug 31st. It is our first time on a Road Scholar bike trip. Have any of you taken this trip before?
We are looking forward to meeting everyone.

Hi, All. I looking forward to meeting you! ....I'm traveling from Denver through Chicago to Frankfurt, departing at about 4pm from Chicago. Anyone leaving on that flight? ...Debby, I've never taken this trip before -- in fact it's my first Road Scholar trip. --Cindy
