Re: Amazon

You don't cycle there because there is nowhere safe to leave the bike ? do you live in Syria? and its fun reading you all bicker when you haven't a clue,same old same old.

Re: Is CYCLIST magazine worth a subscription ?

You a member of a library? if so you can use your card and sign into rb digital and read 10 cycling mags online(3 mountain the rest more road),not ideal as I like to read a paper mag but I haven't really got the cash to spare for them anymore and the chance of ten cycling mags is to got to not use.

Have a look on wheelie Cyprus website,went on a mttb holiday with them years ago but looking at their website I think they rent road bikes now aswell and i'm sure they do a bike drop of service too,not sure but doesn't hurt to ask if it suits you.

Random post I know but just humour me:),say for instance you were having a bit of a hard time and just needing to go cycling to get away but didn't have a lot of money (but enough for ferry to france and careful living for a bit after).Where would you head? Is southern france still warmish in winter...
