I enjoyed the people leading and participating on this trip. The meals away from the hotel were very good. I have more negative than positive things to say however. 1. I registered late and did not receive all materials which is OK since I've been on other Road Scholar trips. I was told that the literature included a statement that we'd be cycling at about 8 MPH. The trip was advertised as 'moderately challenging' as was other trips I was on. I would not have paid for a trip with such a low effort and if I paid well in advance and read 8 MPH how would I have been able to cancel? 2. According to the program details, the mileage for days 2-4 was supposed to be 30 miles, 30 miles and 33 miles. We only did 22, 30 and 24. 3. The ride leader for the 'faster group' on day 3 did not use hand signals or voice warnings, especially did not indicate when stopping, and would start going right and then turn left. I appreciate that the ride leaders were volunteers but it seems that someone who virtually is a solo rider should not lead a group especially when the group not familiar with each other and more important not familiar with the leader. 4. The hotel food was mediocre and the entire downstairs was cold. Since I came from the a Northern sate, I had warm clothing but didn't anticipate needing it indoors. The wireless wifi wasn't good and cell service in the hotel was iffy.
