My wife and I had our annual holiday again with Neilson Holidays in Greece but unlike last year in Halkidiki we went back to a smaller resort, this time Vassiliki on the southern tip of Lefkada. My wife cycles but hasn’t mountain biked for some years and I also went for the MTBing but also the water sports namely wind surfing and dingy sailing.
I have to admit my main love is for MTBing and thus spent most of my time on the bike but during the week managed to grab some exhausting hours on the water. The two MTB guides, both called Tom, were great and got on like a house on fire. I have to thank Tom the resort manager for taking the time to give a little one on one tuition with my wife in the first couple of days in getting her back on the trails.
On the last day in the resort, after a technical guided ride in the morning on the premium bikes (Trek Fuel EX 7) Tom and I took the bikes in the resort car and did some unscheduled uplifting and I had the opportunity to do some action photography as I haven’t done a lot of this. I wished I’d brought my flash gun to had to resort to using a sl. higher ISO and shooting with sun behind me to gain some light on the rider.
All in all we both had a great afternoon and my wife and I had yet another great Neilson holiday for the sixth year running. Some captures of the holiday below.
