inGamba by numbers: what’s involved in an unforgettable week of riding

April 21st, 2015 - Colin O'Brien

It’s impossible to quantify the inGamba experience. The escapades, friendships and flavours of a week with us all combine to form the kind of memories that you can’t measure or put a number on. Those kinds of treasures are priceless.

But, we can give you some quick figures to whet the appetite. A trip such as our Portugal Randonée is a logistical challenge and creating an unforgettable vacation for our guests requires careful planning and a lot of hard work. It also needs some crucial ingredients: unique hotels, unforgettable restaurants and most importantly, fast riders who know how to have fun. Once all those components are in place, we have a recipe for adventure.
