After a few superb spring trips to the cycling Mecca of Mallorca we reckon it's about time explore alternative options for April 2020.
Myself and Alex H, as co-hosts are looking to gauge numbers interested in a spring trip and hear of suggestions.
We want the experience and costs to be similar to Mallorca, just in a different place for a change.
With that in mind, I'd guess the criteria for suggestions have to fit with -
1. Cheap flights from Glasgow.
2. A mix of flat and hilly routes on scenic quite roads.
3. Reasonably priced accommodation, transfers and bike hire.
4. Based in a town with good direct access to cycle routes, decent bars etc.
The last couple of years it has been roughly[masked] miles and 25,000 - 30,000 feet climbing over the week for most of us. It's very relaxed, everyone can do their own thing, just meet up in the evening for a few refreshments and banter.
So, if you are interested in a Spring trip 2020, put your name down and we can get an idea of numbers. At the moment this is only a discussion, the dates are provisional and depend on flight dates.
If you have any suggestions, post them here. I'm sure quite a few of us follow other cyclists on Strava who have gone to other great places in Europe. Look them up and pick their brains about where to go.
It would be helpful if people can narrow down suggestions to a town or region and airport. If you just suggest a country, it's a bit vague.
We will have a meeting at the beginning of October to narrow down the options, get a consensus and hopefully book something early November.
All the Best
