Re: Geneva to Lille

Verdun is very interesting, visit the memorial and underground hospital, bit of an eye opener. Looks a nice route.

Re: Ile d'oleron

Nice ride over the bridges and there are cycle paths going out to the end of the island. I stayed at Brouage for a night which is an old fortified town, check it out on the net, I think there was only one hotel on the main street which was good.

Re: Salzburg > Grado (via the Alps)

Did you go with a tour company or sort it yourself? I have been looking at the threads and links above and there seem to be quite a few outfits that do the route. I am interested in Salzburg to Grado with an addition to Triest with a bike transfer back to Salzburg where I will have left the bike box...

Re: Belgium

Interesting place to stay in Ghent is the Poortackere Monesterium Hotel, an old monastery in the centre of town. You get a "cell" for the night all very civilised. Belgium folks are friendly and speak English.

Re: Cycling in the Champagne region

I stayed at the PRIM'HOTEL BAGATELLE, 51530 DIZY, which is just north of Epernay on the circular "route de vin" which is a nice route. The hotel is Logis and has a good restaurant and would be an excellent base, nice area all round.

Re: Bike on a budget to cycle from France to denmark

Have a look at the Giant GSR Trekking bike for sale in the "For Sale Complete Bikes" section of this forum. Looks good for what you want and a bargain. All the best for the trip.

Re: Greece - watch out for the dog packs?

I think all stray dogs should be culled once or twice a year, they serve no purpose. My family were on Holiday in southern Spain about 15 years ago and if I had a gun I would have shot the lot.
