    Hello Deputy, what is the riding like in Jamaica? And, most importantly, do you have photos? I can't remember if we have any other members in Jamaica, but I don't think I've seen bikey photos!


    Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !

    Thanks for the welcome....I don't have much to compare the riding here to as I have never ridden outside Jamaica....The roads are a bit on the rough side with quite a few potholes but it does keep you alert Alot of hills which I quite like....but most really beat you up on the decent....There is a relatively new highway on the north coast between Ocho Rios and Negril which is awesome...not one pothole and smooth as silk...some nice views also...That about sums up our rides...

    I'm doing the Mediterranean Alps Tour. Nice up through the Ubaye Valley back to Nice...I know we do alot of hills here but i'm not sure what were going to be up against, so any suggestions will be appreciated..

    Thanks again for the welcome and look forward to spending alot of time here..

    The tour sounds lovely! Check in with the Touring forum, there's sure to be someone who's actually done a similar tour, and who can give you better advice than I can .
