Re: Cycling In and Around Girona Spain

Benn to Girona many times and cycling is good. Try the greenways. The 2009 link below has a mapped ride to Peratellada and I would recommend the accommodation there. Photos here http://arwallace.com/index.php?q=gallery&g2_itemId=79787 Links are http://arwallace.com/2004/pyrenees http://arwallace...

Re: FLYING TO TOULOUSE

My trip along the canal is documented here http://arwallace.com/2007/canaldumidi The canal got boring after a while and the continual cycling over tree roots was tedious so we went inland on the roads.

Re: Ryanair: Visa Electron charge starts January 2010

if you buy a sterling fx anywhere card they charge you 1.5% of the transaction - which on a 1p flight is nothing....on a £10 flight is 15p so not bad.

not had a problem with the fairfax website

charge details here https://www.fairfx.com/whatitcosts

Re: Ryanair: Visa Electron charge starts January 2010

anyone know how I can get the Ryanair prices to display in Euros? I am thinking of getting the new mastercard debit card ( the Electron replacement) for Ryanair - the Fairfax (http://www.fairfx.com/travelcardl) seems best but you have to pay in Euros.

Re: cycle hire in toulouse

I would suggest you fly home from Toulouse. In my experience very few companies facilitate cycling from A to B and then picking up the bike from B without some expensive fee. It's always cheaper to take the train and bike back to A. Of course if you have loads of money you can go on a tour that has ...

Re: training in scotland?

Thanks

There are courses run in Edinburgh but there just hasn't been one for a long time. Hopefully the Scottish Government will do something with their new Cycling Action Plan which I see Aberdeen replied to; http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/s3/co ... ponses.htm

Re: Catalunya trip

Thanks Is there a reason you are scanning them and not just taking the maps? You might be interested in this link http://sigpac.mapa.es/fega/visor/ Where is the best place to buy a map?
