Loire Valley & Northern Spain Cycle

Walk or cycle the historic trails, picnic under an olive tree, explore the Greek Islands by yacht or just watch the world go by from a Tapas bar in Barcelona.

Loire Valley & Northern Spain Cycle

Postby theway » Sat Jun 14, 2014 11:14 pm

Hi fellow travellers, look forward to meeting you
I am leaving New Zealand for Paris in 19 days and will be on the Loire Valley Cycle Tour on 12 July - can't wait to enjoy the local country side, cuisine, wine & good friendships.
What is it like cycling in July - will we need the warm clothes suggested in the check-list?
I am travelling for a month so will have a backpack & wheelie case - how difficult is it to get around with your luggage? Check lists suggests helmets, puncture kits and bike gear - is this not supplied by the tour operators?

I reconnect with gadventure tours for the Northern Spain tour from Barcelona on 27 July - can't wait to do the side show activities kayaking, etc. etc. let me know if anyone else is going to be there.

Welcome Aboard,

There may be some limited shared equipment, but you may find things like your own helmet much more comfortable than a shared helmet. Feel free to post over in the July departure lounge if there is not already a post for your tours.

Have a great time!
