What’s the most important thing to bear in mind when departing on a bike tour? One word: planning. The old saying: ‘if you fail to plan, you plan to fail’ has never been more true than on a long bike ride; however, if you’re adverse to planning, then we’ve done you a massive favour; and put together a list on our website to help you

The last semicolon shouldn't be there (" then we’ve done you a massive favour; and put together a list on our website to help you"). The other ones are in the right places.

I assume that's a transcription error? Or are you also meant to be looking for spelling mistakes / incorrect usage of words? If the latter, that's your boy, so to speak.
