CYCLING THE DALMATIAN COAST
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The towns of Hvar and Korcula. We had two meals at small, family run restaurants which were some of the best on the trip.
What did you think of your group leader?
Bojan was a good tour leader, he was well organised and compentent. Some more details on the local history and things to look out for on the rides would have been nice but he was very proficient and we felt well cared for. Boris needs a new van though, preferably one with air conditioning as some of the transfers were a bit uncomfortable, especially with 16 hot cyclists and lots of bags, cycle hats, rucksacks etc!
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
The cycling is not too challenging and the longer days are broken up with lots of stops. The hills are steady climbs and the views from the top are well worth it, as are the downhill sections!! I would also recommend buying your own water if you have a senstive digestive system. The bottled water provided by the tour leader ran out on day three and was then replaced with tap water.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
If possible it would have been nice to spend longer in the town of Hvar which seemed to have a lot of history to it. Options for longer cycle rides would have been a good extra as well but having said that it was quite nice to have a relaxing pace and not be rushing to get to dinner in the evenings. Overall it was a really good holiday and a great way to see Croatia which left us wanting to go back and do more exploring in the future!
