Thanks a lot. I have a few climbs under my belt. And the best way to enjoy land, even a crowded one is by bike.

Thanks a lot. I am more of a slo mo long range self supported cyclist, so some trafic and some show is OK, as long as I am not totally out of place. I wanted to make it ~San Remo to Marseille.

I was wondering if anybody could comment on cycling conditions along Cote D'Azure in France? The map looks exciting, with all the familiar names along the coast, but is it doable by bicycle?

I am touring using a hybrid (Trek 750) for the last 10 years, including Great Divide tour 3 years ago. The only problem with hybrid is 700C tires do not come in thick sizes (700C x 38 is maximum one can get). It is OK on the pavement, but a notch too little on gravel, or single track. So if you go to Europe get a set of 700Cx 42, or 47 and you'll be OK.
My observation is, that "touring bicycle" is dissapearing, people using mountain bikes and hybrids.
