Tour 1703    

Shropshire for Families

The tour leader is Neil Wheadon

Happily married to Sarah with two children, I've toured all over the world since the age of 17 when a friend and I took off with a tent for a month round Europe. I oversee and has organised many of the larger Tandem Club events, attracting up to 400 people. In 1997, Sarah and I spent 11 months cycling to Australia with his wife on a tandem. I enjoy cycletouring for the scenery and the cuisine rather than to get the miles in.

I have nearly 40 tours for the CTC. My tours fall into 2 catagories 1) Family tours There are 3 of these, May and August camping and a week in a chateau in Europe. These are very popular and the vast majority of families that go are repeats. 2) Long haul tours I go to places primarily for the scenery and try to go to places that other leaders aren't catering for that year. I take a small groups, ideally 12 including myself. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer and to get a much better idea of the tours I have done visit which is filled with pictures and description of every tour I've done.
