Life Changing Experience! 10 days in France with IdleFast was a 15 year dream come true road cycling vacation. Lance, Robert and Bruce did everything in their power to take care of the team. They took care of the big things and little things...even washed/repaired our bikes! The rides were well planned and we had the privilege to ride some of the most epic stages of the Tour de France. Want to feel like a pro and be taken care like one too? Then IdleFast is your company. Reasonably priced, former professional riders, sag support, nice hotels, wonderful meals, good transportation.....what more could anyone ask for. They cater to each rider and their personal needs. I am a do it yourselfer, but I have to say this was very nice especially in a foreign country. This is their 6th year in business and their experience shows. I would ride again with them in a heartbeat and am still savoring the most memorable mountain climbs, mountain descents, mountain valley rides ! - Steven Ayers, Stillwater, MN

Idlefast led a fantastic Italian tour for our group that ranged from 5-10 riders of varying skill levels. Guides knew the terrain and the routes well, and had the van ready to pick me up when I bonked on the Stelvio. Lance and company handled all logistics smoothly so the trip was worry-free. Highly recommended. - Steve B., Alexandria, VA

Our trip To France With Lance was amazing! Lance and Rob were awesome guides around Provence. We had never travelled with our bikes before so we were a little apprehensive of what to expect...Lance picked us up at the airport and wisked us off to a charming hotel where our bikes, fully reassembled, awaited us. The following ten days of riding were the most memorable days I've spent on a bike. The routes IdleFast chooses are perfect for all cyclist. We conquered epic climbs used in the Tour de France and cruised down scenic gorges into spectacular lavender fields. IdleFast seemed to think of everything we'd need for a successful riding vacation: they adjusted and lubed our bikes every morning, had cold water bottles and plenty of snacks for our jersey pockets, and offered plenty of encouragement from the saddle as we struggled up the last few kilometers of the HC climbs! - John F., Alexandria, VA

... joined Idlefast events for an unforgettable week of riding in the Dolomites. Lance and Rob, your two guides, are true professionals. They have 30+ years experience riding/racing in the states and Europe, and boy do they know how to plan a bike trip! After signing up, Lance contacted me to discuss my goals for the trip and helped formulate a personalized training plan to get me ready for all of the climbs. From packing my bike to arranging hotel accommodations, ride details, and nightly meals--these guys handle it all and really make the experience about you. They use a support vehicle on some of the longer days to supply riders with cold drinks, gels, sandwiches, you name it... I still think about the frosty beer Lance handed me atop the Stelvio! My trip was an experience of a lifetime, and I owe it all to idlefast... Ride with these guys!
