Cycling in Croatia
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Exploring the various islands and taking in the beautiful scenery from the bike was very inspiring - I will definitely return to Croatia.
What did you think of your group leader?
The group leader, Vladimir, was very good. We enjoyed his company, he was good fun, very organised and very knowlegeable. He was also very calm and reassuring in a couple of difficult moments. The only disappointment was on day two when several of us had to take the support bus instead of completing the ride as we ran into some time pressures. We would have preferred to have started the ride an hour earlier so we could have finished it comfortably.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
The brouchure suggests you need a good level of fitness but not so much experience on a bike. However, I think some level of bike experience is desirable. Most of the rides were on road or track but we had a couple of short off road sections, plus the first two days had quite challenging hills. I'd also suggest all travellers bring their passports, E111 cards and insurance details with them at all times. Sadly we had a couple of injuries that were more difficult to resolve as the individuals were not carrying these items with them at the time. I'd also recommend cyclists ensure they have snacks to bring with them on the bike as some days we went quite long distances before a lunch break.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I would really recommend this holiday
