E-mail from Mike Jones 29/05/15 Re April Lozerien Bis

Hi Chris

It's been a number of weeks since our Lozere trip , but I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the great time we had with you. Together with my two sons Garrant and Ross and their mate Dan who won the two bottles of champagne and our friends from Bristol and last but not least the other Diddy Man Lou we all had a fantastic time and I'm sure a number of them will be looking to come again. As for Lou and me it's a certainty that we will return for what we believe is the best trail riding ever.

Thank you for such a professionally organised event and I look forward to seeing you in the near future.

All the very best




E-mail from Zohan Nash 28/05/15 Re May Pyrenees

Hi Chris

Just thought I would email to say how great I thought the trip was.  Absolutely fantastic riding, views and company.  I would happily do several a year if I could get away with it.


I got annoyed because I struggled on the slippy steep drops and it pissed me off, but overall the terrain was spot on, well done for getting the technical mix at the right level, challenging but doable.  But the whole idea is for it to be difficult, otherwise may as we'll stay at home.


I'll never forget it, thanks again.


By the way, we are talking about Loz Biz 2016, May or June time, prob around 4/5 of us, so pencil us in mate.


Cheers for now, 


Best wishes.







E-mail from Lou Lewis 06/05/15 Re April Lozerien Bis

                                     All the best






E-mail from Colin Webb 12/11/14 Re Nov Massif du Morvan


On behalf of the Sussex Saga Louts I would like to say thanks to you and the your team for another great trip.

We all had a great time with lots of laughs.

Please pass on our thanks to Dominic and Olivier for looking after us.

Hopefully we will be back for some more next year.

E-mail from David Binch 11/11/14 Re Oct Lozerien Bis

Kind regards




E-mail from Phil Roper 15/09/14 Re Sept Lozerien Bis

Hi Chris

Quick e mail to thank you for yet another great week with the Sport Adventure Empire!

Look forward to seeing you next year




E-mail from Ian Mace 12/09/14 Re Sept Pyrenees

Hi Chris,

Just a note to say how much we enjoyed the Pyrenees ride. Great route, fantastic scenery and good company, plus it represented surprislying good value for money! The paragliding on the way home went very well as well. Two days on the beach for me whilst Diccon was messing about with his kite was very welcome after the ride.

I’m sure we’ll be back again soon.


Ian (and Diccon)

Ps. Have you got Johns address to send the front disk back to?



E-mail from Trevor Matthews 30/06/14 Re June Normandie Big Trailie Trip

Hi Chris

Just wanted to say many thanks for a great three days riding in Normandie last week 18th - 20th June . First time for me ever doing anything like this and have to say I had a smile on my face from the minute we started and it was perfect for a beginner on his first trip on is 690 r. A great bunch of lads as well and a good night watching England lose at the football....can't remember who you were supporting ?

Already looking into dates for the next trip  , Morvan ?

All the best Trev , Andy , Brett ...




E-mail from Christopher Ames 11/06/14 Re May Lozerien Bis

Hi Chris

I would like to thank you for some of the best trails i have ever rode on and a great 3 days ride. The road books were a great way to see the county side at are own pace. This is a must for anybody that goes trail ridding .

thanks Chris




E-mail from Clive Wilson 28/05/14 Re April Massif du Morvan

Hi Chris,

Just a quick note to say thanks for the Morvan trip last week, excellent organisation and hospitality as always.

Kind regards to you and your team,





E-mail from Paul Sutherland 18/05/14 Re May Lozerien Bis

Hi Chris thanks for a brilliant 3 days riding. We've done quite a few biking holidays but this was by far the best. Hope to see you again soon. Thanks again. Paul Mick Simon Jeremy Pat and Damion. 




E-mail from Phil Roper 11/11/2013 Re Nov Massif du Morvan

Morning Chris

Quick email to thank you for yet another great week. A refund on the sunshine supplement would be appreciated!!

Look forward to the next one




E-mail from Julian Wood 5/10/2013 Re Sept Lozerien Bis

Hi Chris

Wanted to drop you a personal note to say thank you for the hospitality extended to us during our trip last week. This had to be the best experience I've encountered and I have been lucky enough to have ridden some of the best terrain across Europe and The US. The group gelled extremely well and we came away with more friends than we came with. A special thanks has to go to Cyril who demonstrated beyond any shadow of a doubt why he is #1 in. The Rally Raid world. I wish you every success. And please do look me up if you come to The Isle of Man..




E-mail from Clive Wilson 28/09/2013 Re Sept Lozerien Bis

Dear Chris,

Just a quick note to say thank you for last week's Lozere trip. Paul, Allen and I agreed that it was the best riding we've ever done with the variety and technical nature of the trails. Also the accommodation, lunches and support were spot-on. Meeting Cyril was a bonus. We're all keen to sign up for another trip next year, Pyrenees is top of the list.





E-mail from Paul Baron 29/09/2013 Re Sept Lozerien Bis

Hi Chris,

Many thanks for a great trip. We all enjoyed it, some of the best greenlaning we have done.

We are already discussing a trip with you next year.

Kind regards Paul



E-mail from Steve Dart 26/06/2013 Re June Lozerien Bis

Hi Chris,

I just wanted to send you a brief email to say what a fantastic week I had last week in Mende. I think it was way out of my comfort zone but made me such a better rider and man what an experience!

I look forward to seeing you soon.




E-mail from Phil Read Jr 21/05/2013 Re May Pyrenees

Hi Chris,

Just wanted to say how much I utterly enjoyed my first Sport Adventure tour in the Pyrenees.

The road book was exceptional and balanced some pretty hairy, challenging sections with some stunning routes (to catch your breath for the next killer climb).

Thanks again to you and the legend that is John Hall for making this trip such a memorable and enjoyable experience.

I hope to be back again soon.

Best wishes

Phil Read Jr.



E-mail from Jon Boulton 14/11/2012 Re Nov Trefle du Morvan

Chris, as a virgin to Sport Adventure events and encouraged to come down by Pete & Russ! I just wanted to say what a great set up and well run service you provide, excellent. Great three days riding really enjoyed it.

E-mail from Rob Dunk 11/10/2012 Re Oct Lozerien Bis

Hi Chris,

Many thanks for a very enjoyable and memorable 3 days, truly awesome, I fear the UK will never be the same again! The organization was spot on, the 'Team' (John and Duke) very knowledgeable, the hotel great, over all, as you well know, fantastic value for money! Even though I'm expecting to be aching like hell for the rest of the week I am looking forward to your 2013 Calendar of events being released.

Many thanks again for a great holiday and hope to see you next year.



E-mail from Charlie Trew 05/07/2012 Re: May Lozerien Bis

Awesome trip yet again.

E-mail from Phil Roper 15/06/2012 Re: June Pyrenees

A quick e mail to thank you once again for another great trip this year.

E-mail from Ian Hill 10/11/2011 Re: Sept Lozerien Bis

Hello Chris,just to let you now what an excellent time I had on your tour from Mende in Sept,a great bunch of Chaps(Boss and support/John)included.
All being well will definatly being booking next year.
All the best Ian Hill.



E-mail from Martin Gilbert 09/10/2011 Re: Oct Lozerien Bis

I am not one normally for the organised trip thing as in the past have experienced the over bearing influences of some tour leaders, yours is not like this and I really enjoyed the terrain , the company, the banter and some good lunch stops. I would not hessitate to come again or recommend your services and I hope to meet you again soon.Iam sorry to have had to return home having to leave the valley of death uncleaned but obviously 35 continuous years of trials experience is not enough!,any way thanks good luck and hopefully we will meet again.   Martin. (proof that not all of Andys mates fall off !) 

E-mail from Charlie Trew 20/06/2011 Re: May Lozere

Hi Chris

Yeah we all stopped aching about 3 days later

The trip was awesome and the 4th  day was an absolute grin

We ll def be back for some more and hope to conquer the V of H hill and root step





E-mail from Dan Turnbull 10/05/2011 Re: April Trefle du Morvan

Howdo there Chris. Big thanks for a great holiday in Morvan. You've got some fabulous trails set out there mate, really enjoyable. Along with the trails, a good set of friendly lads, the weather, the hotel, and the back up for injured riders made it an impressive holiday. I hope Dave has a speedy recovery with his shoulder. 

E-mail from Dave Coles 21/04/2011 Re: April Trefle du Morvan

Just in case I never  said it …. Many Thanks to you and Dominic for swinging into action and ensuring  I got to hospital quickly following my little spill !! It’s at times like that when the true value of the Evans experience shines through !!

Cheers Chris,



E-mail from Hugo Clifford 02/11/10 Re: May Lozere 

Hi Chris,


Hugo here of the 'South West Smokers' - hope all is well. That was a top time down in Lozere last May. Me and the lads really enjoyed that -  awesome.  We all felt shattered when we got home!





E-mail from Marc Gadsdon 22/09/10 Re: Sept Pyrenees


Thanks for a really fantastic trip the other week in the Pyrenees - I very much enjoyed it and thought the whole thing was pitched just right in terms of pace, quality of accommodation/food etc.






E-mail from Henk Frieke 06/07/10 Re: June Trefle
Hi Chris,
Almost two weeks ago,... we experienced  your trip in the Morvan and it's still in my mind and I loved every bit of it!
So: Thanks again  for the great Ride and  also the very good organisation and accomadation around this trip : it was sublime!!!
Thanks from all of us!!
See you next time!!
John, André, John, Bas, Robbert, Niec and me ( Hank)






E-mail from Steve Dopson 19/04/10 Re: April Trefle


Hi Chris


Just a short note to say what a wonderful time I had last week.


As you know I was a late replacement, when I was asked if I wanted to go come along I accepted with some scepticism, trail riding and road books have never interested me at all. I could not have been more surprised about how the three days were organised, what a fantastic job you have done, all the preparation you do certainly pays off.


You, John and Dominque put up with me and made me feel part of the gang and comfortable very quickly. I only knew Dave, Mick and Andy before the trip and I now feel I have made many more friends.


I do hope I will be allowed back sometime!


Take care and vive le France!







E-mail from Ben Smith 18/04/10 Re: April Trefle




Just wanted to say that I thoroughly enjoy the trips. I love trying to stay on the bike and follow the road map at the same time and it totally clears my head from work, which is unfortunately rare these days.


It was really nice that I could spend a few days with Dad for his 60th, doing something that we both enjoy so much. The countryside is incredible and you sort out a great atmosphere, and have the most superb back-up.


I'll try and come again before we have to tell Dad that he's a too to old.


Thanks a lot






E-mail from James French 17/03/10 Re: March Normandie

E-mail from Darren 'Craig' Smith 13/10/07 Re: Oct 06 Lozere

Dear Chris and team,

Just a quick note to thank you for the superb time we and the sport-adventure virgins experienced this week . it's been the best biking experience we've had. The thing where this trip really scores high was the diversity of the terrain experienced one hour your're on fast track next large loose rocks , steep loose rock and dirt climbs ,mountain goat passes.then single track foot-up trail type sections in the bottom of a valley,
it's like the best bits from all the enduro's you've ever done in three days,see you again.darren{craig}smith

E-mail from Colin Webb 25/09/06 Re: Sept 06 Pyrenees


Just a note to say a big thank you from the guys from Sussex. As usual we had a great time. Nice company, good food and realy fabulous scenery. The going was interesting, which made it all the more enjoyable. We all said its another tick in the box of great trips to do. Can you thank Jasmina, Xavier and Alan for us. Once again thanks.

Regards Colin and Simon Webb, Dave Cummings and Tony Colwell


E-mail from Paul Bevan 16/09/06 Re: Sept 06 Pyrenees


We both thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would love to come again when hopefully the trail will be a a little easier and the views a little longer, particularly on day 3, because it surely can't rain twice like that - can it?




E-mail from Ted Poole 02/07/06 Re: June 06 Pyrenees

Hi Chris

Just a few lines to say thanks to yourself, Yasmina and Sebastian, a fantastic 3 days riding, unbelievable scenery, demanding trails, and great hotels, this trip was my 4th Sport Adventure excursion, and I look forward to my 5th in 07, keep up the good work.


E-mail from Ian Exton 26/06/06 Re: June 2006 Pyrenees

I'd like to thank you and Yasmina for an excellent three day trip last week in the Pyrenees... I had such a great time riding with Kevin, Stuart and Russell to the top of the mountain on the third day.... I've been grinning like a fool and wondering when I can do another tour.


Ian Exton


E-mail from Ian Coulson 19/06/06 Re: June 2006 Pyrenees

Just a note to thank you again for a splendid trip. Despite my inadequate preparation but thanks to your and Christian's consideration (and avoiding the extremes!!), I really had a fantastic time. Please extend my thanks again to Yasmine and Christian. Must do some work to redress the balance of all of that lovely confit de canard!

All the best



E-mail from Ian Rostron 07/10/04 Re: Normandie

Hello Chris

Thanks for a great trip last week.

Regards Ian Rostron


E-mail from John Plumpton 23/09/04 Re: Tour de Morvan


Many thanks for an excellent 3 days riding, it was definitely some of the best riding I have done. All the guys really enjoyed it and it has formed many hours of pub based recollections. We have been heartily recommending the tours to our other friends and expect to return in the future, if you don't mind having us.

Once again thanks for your patience in leading us and putting up with our lack of map reading skills, next time we will be certain to do more map reading and get lost less.

A final thanks for the help in getting me back on the road after my fork seal problem, can you give me an address I can send you a replacement set to. By the way, after an awful lot of ribbing I have now acquired neoprene gaiters, I couldn't handle any more micky taking.

Have you got the dates for next year, we are quite interested in the Burgundy trip!


John Plumpton



E-mail from Russell Crockford 21/05/04 Re: Normandie

Hey Chris,

Great fun en Normandie! I loved it, couldn't remember a thing on the route which made it seem like a new trip. Neal had a great time.

Its still a unique moto-holiday that any 'follow-my-leader' type ride cannot come close too.




E-mail from Nick Payne 21/04/04 - Re: Morvan


Just a quick note to say thanks to you, Dominic and Mia for the recent trip to Morvan.

Very enjoyable and don't be surprised if we book another.


Nick Payne

A Big thank you for a great trip. Please say another thank you to Laurence and Patrice for being patient with us and looking after us so well. The boys thought it was Fantastic. So much so that they want to come back. Can you let us know about the details of your new routes you are planning in November? And if you have 6 places? John Hooper is also keen to come along this time.

Many thanks again, hope to see you in November?

Kind regards



E-mail from Neil Corby 06/04/04 Re: Tour de Morvan


Just a quick note to say thanks for a great week. Still buzzing now! Hope to get on the Lozere trip later this year or next.

Thanks Again



E-mail from Philip Staples 10/03/04 Re: Normandie

Dear Chris,

The recent Normandie trip was great fun and I just want to thank you and your team for your efforts. It was certainly worth the effort on my part and I have no hesitation in recommending it to my friends. I shall hope to see you again.

Bon chance, mes amis



E-mail from Alex Standish 10/03/04 Re: Normandie

Hi Chris

Just a short note to say how much fun we had in Normandie.

Really was a blast, most amusing.......especially when the rain arrived.

Richard and I had so much fun, we want to come again. Can you please put us down for any cancellations in April.

Otherwise, I guess we'll have to wait until Nov.

Anyway, great trip, and many thanks




E-mail from Brent Smith 8/12/03 Re: Normandie

E-mail from Nigel Rowles 14/06/03 Re: Normandie

I'd like to get in contact with the lads from the south who were all riding the Gas EC300's. If you could pass on the contact information to me it would be much appreciated.

Excellent holiday by the way (I should be back next year).

With thanks
