Can you tell me more about the difficulty level and road conditions/types for this trip? What is the activity level and what level of fitness/experience with a bicycle should I have to go on this tour?
This tour is classified as activity level 3 (moderate). The tour involves 4 days of cycling (plus one optional day's ride) with an average distance of 45km per day with full vehicle support.
The rides mainly follow tarmac roads, but where possible on the islands we will use the quieter older roads that tend to be hard gravel. The roads are quiet and there is less traffic on the islands than the mainland. The route will be generally undulating but there are a few challenging hills that can be tough in the warm weather. The trip is vehicle supported so it is possible to miss some of these harder sections if you prefer. At times the route will follow roads or tracks with a steep downslope to one side. Certain sections will not have a barrier.
No specific cycling experience required but you should be comfortable on a bike and have a reasonable level of fitness.
We have categorised this trip as generally not suitable for persons of reduced mobility. However, if you are a regular traveller on such trips, please contact customer service to discuss this particular trip and your personal condition.
What will the climate be like in Croatia and what are the alternatives in case of bad weather?
Croatia boasts one of the sunniest climates in Europe, and some regions are well known to have very little rain. The trip runs from March through to October, so travellers should expect some variation in temperature and possibly some rainfall. Temperatures can be high, particularly in July, and can reach the mid to high 30s. Temperatures in March, April and October are typically cooler. There can be thunderstorms in the summer.
If it rains lightly, the group would still tend to cycle. If the weather becomes really bad then the tour leader would arrange to do something else other than cycling and transport the group in a mini bus. If you face any problem or struggles during cycling, you can jump in the support vehicle.
