This year I am looking at cycling from nice to Barcelona, I am after any advice that is offered. I will be flying by easyjet from the UK to Nice/Barcelona and doing this in july/august.
Does anyone know which way I should travel, i.e. should I go from Barca to Nice or Nice to Barcelona, I would want the prevailing wind behind me pushing me forward.
I will be cycling on a specialized tricross comp 2007 with rear panniers, I will not have much luggage with me.
As I am flying from different airports, I will have to use a cycle bag that is light enough for me to carry on the journey, does anyone know where I can get one from, I can't find any on c2c.
I have done a few fairly long distance rides, c2c etc but max I have done is 245 miles over 4 days, I have give myself 2 weeks for this ride which is about 550 miles total. So it is fair to say i will be inexperienced on the trip.
Any advice no matter how trivial is much appreciated
