Great all round experience and highly recommend. Derrick was always quick to reply to emails which made it very easy to organise.

I wanted to hire a bike for a solo tour of the island and Derrick was awesome. I was able to pick up the bike the evening before so I could set off extra early to beat the heat.

The bike was good quality (modern road bike with disc brakes) + helmet supplied. I let Derrick know I didn't have bike shoes with me so the bike was ready with normal peddles. Also recommended a route + roads to avoid.

Thoroughly recommend and will do it again when back in Antigua

Thank David A

Very friendly, good bikes, great routes (going places you would never find on your own) and fantastic commentary and banter along the way (history, flora, fauna, yet have it all)....and you can drop into the best coffee shop on the island (Carib Bean Coffee Roasters - very worthwhile).....if you ask nicely!

Derrick was awesome. I miss match my pedals and shoes, Derrick tracked down some shamano cleats for me so my riding could continue - he was very responsive. drop off and pick up right from my resort.

I was a little skeptical about riding after the cab ride from the airport. Once I got on the bike and followed the 60klm route that derrick pointed out I was amazed. Roads are fine and the cars are no issue. The route I chose was hilly and challenging (fig tree hill, english harbour), which is what i wanted. i got a really good workout with spectacular views.

I highly recommend.

thanks Derrick.

I enjoy cycling in different places so arranged a trip with Derrick prior to arriving in Antigua. Communication was great and he was flexible on dates. The ride itself was with Alistair who was very knowledgeable and great fun. There's not many 60km rides that will give you beaches, locally made coffee, cricket stadiums and naval history. There's the odd pothole in Antigua (!) but the drivers are very respectful.

Really good morning ride with our excellent guide Alastair and Derrick as camera man and back up crewe. Good bikes, exactly the right pace, lots of interesting information and just a lovely way to see more of the real Antigua. Bring your own water and snacks.
