Excellent day out We joined Grace and Pat for their Old Willunga Hill one day tour during the Tour Down Under. Despite not having been with the group the rest of the week we were welcomed in and enjoyed a wonderful day out. The day was perfectly planned from the ride out, to the lunch and location right near the finish of the stage. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and we will hopefully make our way onto another tour in the future.

Well planned and executed Tour Down Under 2020 Grace and Pat put us in excellent accommodations with great facilities. They planned routes for people with all riding abilities and even for non-riders. The aperitif get-togethers showcased different wines, beers and ales of Southern Australia. The rider support was great, they took care of us and our personal bikes. I will travel with them again.

Fantastic experience I had a great week at the Tour Down Under. We rode all the beautiful hills of Adelaide. We had different riding each day and we saw parts of the race each day. Some days we saw the start and some days we saw the finish. It was very exciting. The Ride International crew were fantastic. They took care of every detail. My bike was ready when I arrived. They had ride snacks and beverage out every morning and at our stops along the way. We had three receptions throughout the week and some evenings to ourselves. Thank You Pat and Grace and staff.

La mia nuova famiglia. My new family. Traveling to new places is always exciting, but meeting new people and making new friends is what's most important to me. Pat, Grace and the Ride International Team are still in touch with me today. When you tour with RI you tour with family. You're welcomed into their home, into their world of cycling and you become one of the family. I've been to the Tour Down Under and the Giro with them and I can tell you there was never a hitch. From cleaning the bikes to Five Star meals every detail covered. Every want met. And the best thing is you get to choose them for your next adventure. Grazie Grace and Pat.

Treatment like a pro I traveled with Ride International Tours at the 2019 Tour Down Under and again in 2020. We were shown all the sights of Adelaide, shown the best vantage points of the race and had the chance to ride Adelaide's Mt Lofty, Glenelg Beaches, Barossa wine region, Corkscrew climb, Norton Summit and the famous Willunga Hill. Pat and Grace really go out of their way to ensure everyone is having a good time on or off the bike!

Tour de smiles Pat and his fellow guides knew the roads of the TDU fastidiously and were continuously greeted with smiles wherever we went. Whether it was on the side of the road in a climb, in a bar or in the bike - Pat and Grace bring a smile to everyone’s face who has ever met them. Absolute treasures.

TDU with Ride International Tours My trip to the Tour Down Under with Ride International was excellent from start to finish. The accommodation was good, the food was great, the support riders knew what they were doing and the rides were well chosen. Pat and Grace are both total legends.

OUR GUEST REVIEWS

“Pat is the bike skills whisperer! We worked together closely to improve my dirt skills ahead of cyclocross World Cups and world championships. With his help I achieved the best cyclocross World Cup result and world ranking ever achieved by an Australian - no small feat for an ex roadie!”

- Lisa Jacobs, 2 x times Australian Cyclocross Champion

Star rate
“I often do one-on-one sessions with Pat to continuously improve my technical skills for World Tour racing. He has a magic way of breaking things down so that they become achievable. We often work on race specific technique like riding cobbles, cornering, and hill climbing, but he also throws in some fun tricks along the way. I always leave feeling confident in my abilities and having had a really fun ride.”

- Grace Brown, Professional Cyclist

- Stephen P . QLD, Australia

“Both Pat and Grace have excellent people skills, they build relationships quickly, they were always well organised with itineraries or plans for the day re weather, road changes, or unexpected issues that arose. Hard work from them made our tour of two weeks a dream holiday along with all the extra drama of the biggest cycling race in the world.”

- J. & I. Aplin . Napier, New Zealand

Star rate
“I first met Pat and Grace on a cycling tour in Europe in 2013. Pat and Grace make the perfect team to run these types of tours, both are friendly, bubbly and outgoing in their personalities and each bring their own invaluable skills to touring with a group.”

- A. Saunders . Victoria, Australia

“Wow, two of the greatest tour guides I know. Knowledgeable, multilingual, always helpful, a great team to handle your once in a life time tour. I’ve done at least 4 two-week cycle tours with one or both of this husband wife team. Every one has been extraordinary. You will not go wrong with one of these two as your tour coordinators.”
