In the beginning of November I have 7 days to ride on my road racing bike from Barcelona to Malaga. I prefer good asphalt, not too heavy traffic or too hilly, I need a bed every night.

I would be grateful for any suggest!

best, Sverre

  • In December I have two weeks for cycling in Gambia. How are the roads, the asphalt? Is it possible to use a road racing bike or should it be a Mountain bike?

    And:
    1 Should I use a mosquito net? (Is this possible to buy in Gambia?)
    2 If I want to go to Senegal, is it easy to get visa in Gambia?

    Jesus! Malaga to Barcelona and NO hills, you must be joking. Have you seen the profile of Spain? It is the second country in Europe with most mountains! The problem is that the country roads will take through the roughest terrain to be honest. You could send a PM to victorponf.

    Can't help you with Gambia though.

  • Hola mate.

    Sounds like a cracking (if frenetic) route.

    If you stick to the coast you have a great chance of meeting lots of brits, as the costas are just a british colony these days.

    Head inland for a bit and it gets very pretty (okay, there will be hills, but as the man above me said, spain has the highest average altitude in Europe).

    Have fun mate

    Thanks for response! Well, I have cycled in Spain before, (ex Murcia-Lissabon), I know it is hilly, and I didn't ask for NO hills... Who is victorponf and how can I come in touch with him?
