Good Evening All
As a very last minute opportunity I am Cycling from Calais to Barcelona (leaving this Tuesday 21st August 2012
I would like to take the most Direct but Flattest route, but with such short time have been unable to get a satisfactory answer for myself.
Ive heard heading to Bordeux is a good idea, but would appreciate any advice and plenty of waypoints in between.
Thanks in advance
All the Best
You are a little bit VERY late!
I think about Rhein-route (EV15) , Rhein-Rhone-Canal, Rhone valley and Mediterranean coast (EV8).
Also have a look here :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EuroVelo
Try it and tell me about.
Hills are not that hard to ride. If planning to tour for next 30 years plus you will be riding them.
Just plan a route thru valleys. than climb out of valley to next valley
I am 76 and ride Mt diablo at 4000 feet elevation gain
crossing france through the canal the midi is one nice and easy going option.
flat, few cars and fresh.
or in english
