have any of you guys being cycling in italy or france and if so have you got any stories, experiences, suggestions to share?
my plan was
to go to italy and along the tuscany coast or along the amalfi coast and then maybe to sardinia. (by the way, we would do probably on average 15 km a day!
) hold on ... i'll just wait til you finish laughing.
anyway... my friend when he heard this said something like 'italy's roads are full of crazy bastards and the coastal roads are somehow even crazier and they wind up mountains and overhang fearful drops'
so ... i've heard france is great for cyclists! and although you have to wear a string of onions round your neck which would probably get annoying after a week or so, there are nevertheless dedicated roads (unlike in italy) and whole routes and b and bs just waiting for you at the end of every epic 15 km slog
. however, we're going late spetember so the weather might be an issue there! since we're going so late we would go along the south coast (google says average weather is 22 degrees so not too bad). has anyone cycled along the south coast of france?
on the other hand, maybe there are even better places?
