My girlfriend and I are planning to visit Spain in October, and may stay in a villa between Barcelona and Girona. We really would like to take our bikes and explore the local area, as well as maybe being able to get trains/'planes to other places, possibly Granada, Seville and Valencia (These could be incorporated into a mini-excursion for a few days). Basically we'd like to see a bit of Spain, and take out bikes.
Easiest option in terms of time, is to fly (north London based so Stanstead/Luton), then train to the villa (3km from station). Or, we were thinking about going by train, as that would be a nice journey in itself. Does anyone have experience of this? We're imagining trains will be a lot easier with bikes than 'planes.
Still very much in the planning stage, but ideally we'd like a 'base' rather than 'tour' with luggage. Just wondering if others had experience of cycle holidays in Spain, and any advice for us.
