Re: Italian End to End: Sept 2013

Andy (Miller) I just left a message on Italy Cycling Guide website and then realized that it's your website. :lol: I have spent all night trying to download the routes from BicItalia website to compare with my own, but it just seems to download fragments of the route. I have tried LOTS of route plan...

Re: Italian End to End: Sept 2013

Thanks Guys, lots of research for me to do :D I'm off to France for two weeks now so will probably have to do that when I get back, but should have a complete (revised) end to end mapped soon that takes into account all your feedback, plus half a dozen books. The flights, transport and start and end...

Re: Italian End to End: Sept 2013

This isn't a complete list but these...

Re: Cycling from Antibes to Nice and Monaco

Between Antibes I just followed the beach...I was staying in Antibes for a day before heading into the Alps and had popped into Nice for lunch and to test that I had put my bike together properly after the flight (I hadn't). I just followed the coast line, most of it was promenade and bike lanes wit...

Re: Italian End to End: Help with bicitalia

Thanks Guys, I'm going to compare their routes with mine. It would be a shame to miss the Lake Garda road (West side). In general I have avoided tunnels in the rest of Italy, but I'm not too worried about the odd one or two. I'll take front and back lights. I have been fine in The Alps in the past f...

Re: Italian End to End: Help with bicitalia

Interestingly they are avoiding the road down the side of Lake Garda to Bardolino? That was one road I was looking forward to in particular

Anyone know why? Looks fine on google streetview

Re: Italian End to End: Help with bicitalia

Great :D That's very helpful
It does seem to be better in Google Chrome and Firefox than Internet Explorer. Also I may have been a bit inpatient when clicking on the routes
Chrome is also translating the page which is helping and using the 'Detagli' button I can now export the routes

Re: Cycling from Antibes to Nice and Monaco

I stayed in Antibes in 2012, and cycled the promenade all the way into Nice, it was basically a cycle path along the beach. It 2009 I cycled through Nice into Italy via Monte Carlo, it was a spectacular ride. It was so hot that some of the fields caught fire and we had to divert up into the Mountain...

Hi, I'm cycling from Innsbruck to Sicily in September, but haven't figured out the best way to get my bike back to Bristol yet. How are you getting yours back?

Re: Bristol to Rome

I cycled from the Italian border near Monte Carlo to Bath a couple of years ago and was very pleased with the route. Would be happy to share it. I'm also planning an end to end of Italy this year, so have bought loads of books and maps, and done some detailed road planning using MapMyRide. Although ...
