OUR GARMIN GPS SYSTEMS.

Our GPS systems - Colour maps with ride route highlighted - Clear, easy guidance. Here's what you gain with our self guided GPS systems:

  • Clear guidance: Detailed colour maps that move, turn & reorient themselves automatically - you just follow the clear route line. And for your peace of mind, you are always shown the distance to the next turn in meters and Kms, and it counts down accurately.
  • Easy to interpret turn directions: At 200m before each junction there's an audio warning & the GPS switches automatically to a clear bespoke turn screen. This screen shows the distance, and the number of seconds to the turn, both with a count down.
  • Stop when you want to, not because you're lost!: With the GPS there's no more stopping at every junction to figure out where you are on a paper map. But when you do want to take to stop; for a photo, for a drink or a meal, a simple press of a button is enough to pause your route and another to get you going again.
  • Stress-free cycling: No getting lost in a place you don't know, no having to ask for directions in your best French.
  • Travel light: Leave all the maps at home. All we weigh you down with is your GPS and your route notes (best cafes, favourite vineyards, things to do, etc).

Our GPS systems - 1 of 2 Data screens - All the ride data that you could need. In addition to the maps and directions, our GPS systems also give you all the bike stats you could need. We have them set up with the following (there are other data points available should you want them):

  • Distance: Kms travelled.
  • Time: Ride time & Time of day.
  • Speed: Current & Average.
  • Climbing: Metres climbed during your ride.
  • Navigation: Both distance & ETA to destination. Distance to the next turn.
  • Battery Level.

Note the Garmin GPS fixes solidly onto your bike's handlebars, and comes off easily for when you're visiting on foot.

GPS Briefing - On your arrival, we'll sit down over a drink, and give you a full run-down on how the GPS works; how to load rides, how to navigate etc... but don't worry it really is a simple and a great way to tour! And as back-up, we will give you a carry card with all the basic functions of your GPS. There's no need to worry though, we haven't lost anyone yet...

SOME OF OUR TRIPADVISOR B&B BASED TOUR REVIEWS:

"If you haven't used GPS before this will transform your cycling vacation. As well as the rides that exist on the computer, Neil will create a tailor-made one for you in 5 minutes."
Nigel - UK - Oct 13.

"Neil created a couple of special routes for us, and we never once felt lost or uncomfortable with the surroundings. "
Courtney - US - Sept 12.

"Compared to other biking options, the GPS, combined with Neil's knowledge of the area made it stress free and allowed us to really enjoy our daily biking adventures. A trip we will always remember and recommend to others."
Maryann - New Zealand - Aug 12.

"Neil's use of the Garmin GPS is a great idea and was very accurate and easy to follow. It made it much easier to follow then any printed route."
Stephen - US - Sept 11.

"So easy to use and I felt for those cyclists I saw pouring over maps trying to find out where they were. With this system you barely hit the main road and spend most of your time on small lanes,the likes of which you would needed to have grown up in the area to know they even existed!"
Patrick - UK - June 2010.

"Amazing system. Allows you to have a plan and know where you're going through small countryroads, villages, vineyards and orchards."
Dana - US - June 2010.
