Barcelona to Paris. Cycle. road bikes.

Thursday, 21st May 2020 (all day)

Location: TBD

Thoughts? Thinking from Thursday evening 21st may travel till 31st.... 10 days available, 7 days cycling 2 rest days and a day to return home. 1200km, 4200 total meters (so pretty flat)

Plan get to Barcelona cycle back. Options fly. Train. 6 hrs from Paris.
No vehicle support so travel light.
Not to far per day so should be time to enjoy the culture on the route.
Please sign up as 'maybe' if interested or 'yes' if definite.
Save the dates.
Can tune the details nearer the time.
Early flight or train booking will be a good idea.

Have asked Kim if he would be able to drive the van.
It certainly would make life easier.
Await to hear back and re-check its will be OK still with Mike.

I'd have loved to do this, but it falls during Stuart's A Levels so I can't take the time away. Shame!

Dwight - toying with this to make me cross train properly (otherwise to many running injuries) as clearly would need to get some proper cycling miles in the legs beforehand. Probably not two whole weeks though so not Pre-Paris trip. Just wondering if option of loading all bikes onto Van Tuesday and doing this like Scottish would work? everyone else gets cheep flights to Barcelona a day or two after bikes go? and if so lets get some volunteer drivers for a cheep type holiday.... Or did you have hotel plans already...

Looks great. I'll be on for the first few days at least, the second week is half term so would confirm nearer the time. Riding down to Paris could be an option too
