What our guests say:
“I am not sure there is a way to overstate Rob’s value as a leader, athlete, and person who makes a trip like this enjoyable. He is an accomplished athlete and trainer…positive and at the same time professional. This guy makes these trips great and I would seek out another trip where he is the leader.” –John; Coral Gables, FL
“You know you have a gem of a leader in Rob.” –Jacqueline; Mill Valley, CA
“We’ve done many trips with Sojourn and other bike companies, and Rob is right there at the top, in every way. There could not be a better rep for Sojourn. He’s always helpful, entirely courteous, has good common sense – good for all ages and all abilities.” –Jerry; Longview,TX
