James Hutton – Bike Bus

We had a great weekend experiencing the delights of the C2C route. Your team were excellent,  Phil showed us some of the delights we would be experiencing on our cycle, the guys who ensured our bags were moved between locations ensured we could concentrate and enjoy our cycling adventure.  Dave was supportive and patient with us on collection from the finish line. Your planning and support helped us build some very positive memories of our experience and opened up our horizons further.

Just a quick line to say thank you for providing the bike bus to Kielder at the weekend.

It was very professional service & your driver couldn’t have been more helpful.

We will definitely be using the bike bus again.

Dear Andrew

I just wanted to say thank you for all of you help and the professionalism of Stanley Travel on our Coast to Coast cycling tour.

Ken arrived perfectly on time with a pristine coach and helped with our bags and bikes. He was excellent on a dreadful journey north due to accidents and Friday afternoon traffic. On our return journey he was early, helpful and brought us safely home. We very much appreciate his work.

Thank you also for the luggage transfer; I hope your mum and dad were OK with our bags and bits! We tried to make it as easy as we could with everything being together in one place.

Everyone was very impressed with the whole weekend of which your part was central. They are all asking where we ca go next time, so don’t be surprised to hear from us again!

This is all 15 of us in Whitby on Sunday afternoon. Happy faces!!

Many many thanks

Kind regards to you and your mum and dad,

We have found your company to be much the best bike transport one that we have used over the years and wouldn’t hesitate to use you again or to recommend you to others (as we have in the past).

The drivers we had were very good and did everything they could to help and sort things out for us, so thanks very much once again to them. I hope they weren’t too late getting home!

Hi Andrew,

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you on behalf of all the team here at IMG that worked on the Etape Pennines event in Durham last weekend, it was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to doing so again next year.

Please pass on my thanks to all of the guys that helped us out on the day as well.

Ezme & Ross McDavitt, Australia..

Hi Andrew,

Well Ross and I have been back in sunny Oz for a couple of weeks now and we are still talking about what an amazing time we had cycling around on the Hadrian’s Cycleway! We wanted to send a quick email to say a massive thank you for organising and co-ordinating such a fantastic trip for us.

Your parents were wonderful – a great back-up when I needed it to get up the couple of steep parts and they offered a great service throughout, the bikes were really comfy and light (or as comfy as your butt can be when you’re not used cycling for large parts of the day) and the choice of b&b’s was excellent. We couldn’t fault the trip and I am immensely proud that I managed to do 145 miles out of the 170 odd with being 6 months pregnant! (I was too stubborn to even consider cancelling).

So thanks once again, and if ever we are back up North doing any more holidays we will definitely look Stanley Travel up (although we did highly recommend you guys whilst we were travelling around anyways…)

Many Thanks.

Best Wishes – Karen, British Heart Foundation

Hi Andrew,

I just wanted to drop a note to say thank you to Andy & Nick for their hard work on Saturday, at our ‘Ride of the Roses’. They did a fantastic job, kept smiling through what was a long day, and the riders were all really impressed too!

Fingers crossed we raise loads of money for the British Heart Foundation.

Matthew Carr.

Hi Guys – I just wanted to say an enormous thank you for the flexibility and efficiency over the last week for our Coast to Coast ride. I think it is one of the best customer experiences I have had as you managed to take out the stress from the weekend. We all really appreciated it and I will definitely recommend you to other cyclists.

Steve Whitehead.

Just a quick thank you – excellent driver (nice guy) – got us to Haltwistle ready for our ride in good time, halfway home we were wishing he was following us for a lift back.

Anyway – it was just to thank you for your services once again – we are already planning next years C2C so will be in touch Steven

Dear Andrew

My sincere thanks in providing the emergency transport last Saturday when my wife and I could no longer continue the ride. In all honesty we hadn’t estimated the severity of the hills on that day, and with the wind and rain we just had to ‘throw in the towel’. Your driver cheered us up no end, and special thanks to your Mother for the tea and biscuits when we picked our car up.

Lynn Lucas

Dear Andrew and the drivers.

On behalf of the Great North Bike Ride and Chris Lucas Trust a big THANK YOU in helping make the day a huge success and raise over  £100,000.00 in sponsorship and donations on the day. Once again, please thank your drivers for being so accommodating and help making the whole thing possible. We had over 2,300 cyclists of which you transported about 450 !.

Next year is the events 10th anniversary and we are expecting it being the biggest yet, so can I book you now !.

Many thanks

Julie Clarke

Dear Bike Bus,

Many thanks for the service you provided in organising the transfers and baggage forwarding during our family cycling holiday at the beginning of July.

We had fantastic weather and an all together a most memorable time. We will certainly be calling on your services when we arrange for next year, but this time for the Coast and Castles.

Andy, System Analyst, HSBC Bank Sheffield.

Hi Andrew,

May I extend our appreciation to you and your team for the transport and support during our recent charity ride. Forty six cyclists and bikes concentrated on raising money whilst the Bike Bus took care of the logistics.

Without your commitment and competence, this challenge simply wouldn’t have happened.

Donna, Atkinside Development Company Ltd.

Morning Andrew,

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and everyone at The Bike Bus for all your help regarding my chaps cycle ride last week. Thank you! all your help was much appreciated.

Laura – Durham University Charity Committee

Hello Bobby

Can I thank you all for supplying the transport and support for DUCKs recent Whitehaven to Durham bike ride. It transpired that we had some very ill prepared students to deal with and your service was over and above what was expected. Robert and Ann’s help over the three days was immense !

Thank you so much
