We are starting to plan phase 3 of our European Atlantic Coast tour. This year our start point is the French/Spanish border at Saint Jean de Luc/San Sebastian. We would appreciate help with the following:
1. Train travel within Spain, and any specifics relating to traveling trains with loaded bikes
2. Frequency of trains to small regional coastal destinations, as we will be traveling along the Atlantic to about Lisbon, Portugal this year.
3. Train travel between Spain & Portugal...is it the same system?
4. How will we find the terrain of paved roads along the northern Spanish coast? Will the roads be good condition and numerous, or will we find ourselves inland on more major roads?
Any additional information for this segment will be appreciated. The 1st year of our journey we flew into Amsterdam, and home out of Paris. Last year we flew in and out of Bordeaux, France and took trains to our start and from our ending point. We aren't sure what will work best this year.
