CYCLING THE DALMATIAN COAST

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Island-hopping, taking our bicycles on various ferries, and especially our optional day on Miljet when we cycled around the lake and found a little paradise at the end of the track where we swam in crystal clear turquoise waters...

What did you think of your group leader?

Ana was very much in control of the group and excellent at organising everything including restaurant bills which can be a headache! She has a strong personality but she was also sensitive to other people's wishes and needs, and did all she could to accomodate everyone. Great sense of humour too, and very supportive with people cycling at the back. A group leader one will remember.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Be prepared for some tough uphills at times, especially on hot summer days and as soon as your first day, but the freewheel downhills are exhilarating and make it all worhwhile! A real adrenaline rush...

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Croatia and its islands are a little paradise and it is great to admire all the work and repair done to the damaged buildings during the recent conflict. I just hope mass tourism is not going to overwhelm its coasts and pollute its beaches and eventually spoil it as it has in other parts of the world.
