54 cyclists, (that's a big number) came together for what is potentially the last family tour that I'll do solo over the past 15 years.
We'd visited Proitze Muhle 4 years ago and it proved an extraordinarily popular choice no least because the food is so yummy.
Over 5 days we cycled past canals, along cobbled streets and some of us climbed a windmill.
So to all the families who have joined our family over the past 15 years, thank you. It isn't over by any means, just moving to the next stage, chateau holidays for couples anyone?
