I have found that a lot of people are interested in joining me for segments of the ride too – though none are mad enough to do the whole thing. This is quite difficult on a long ride: someone could fly into a point with their bike and ride with me for a week or two, but then they are a long way from their airport. So we are mapping train and bus routes onto my route, so we can define points of joining and leaving which link to the same airport, all the way around Spain. You may want to do the same thing …but it does take some time. Also the news on Spanish trains is not good – they are not very bike-friendly. Does anyone have any experience of this?
