"The Magnificent Seven was a significant challenge, the highlight of our trip and reminded me how underrated the Costa Blanca is as a top cycling destination" Guest May 2017

"We rode the Magnificent 7 with Gavin in May 2017 and it was by far the best day I have had on a bike for a long while. It is a testing route with almost no flat roads, but so rewarding with amazing scenery, long climbs and fast descents. The day was very warm and having Kathryn support us in the car was great. A constant supply of water and food through the day was very important and ensured we finished feeling strong (even allowing us to manage a sprint finish back into town!). Gavin ensured our group kept together, managing the pace well and planned nice lunch and coffee stops to make this a real memorable day. We chose this ride as part of our training for some sportive events during the summer and felt this was great preparation. If you get the chance to ride this one, do not miss it." Steve Porter Wych Hill Velo U.K.
