Julie & Nic HodgettsView Other Tour Managers
Over the last 25 years Julie and Nic have cycled and mountain biked in many countries all over the world and have also participated in audax's, sportives, and mountain bike orienteering events. Their main passion is travelling either by bike, motorbike or on foot and have organised many trips and events for their cycling club, the National Fire Service Cycling Section and friends. In 2014 they both retired, Nic after 30 years in the Fire Service and Julie after 32 in the NHS which has given them even more time to travel. Recent cycle tours to India, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, France and Spain has reinforced their belief that travelling by bike is a great way to explore new places. So they would like to share with like minded people some of the fantastic places they have discovered on their travels.
