Hello allWell i have been getting on with my new(ish) bike and me and my dad now go out for rides round the local area, so have decided as all my GFs are in relationships/Uni and i have no one to go on holiday with that i may go for a little cycle tour somewhere nice and warm.anyone have any ideas or experiances of campanies, looking for mostly touring with a little bit of easy non road stuff, somewhere warm with pools or the sea and time off to enjoy a bit of sunbathing, also a company where all the other people won`t be all 60 wearing sandals would be nice as i will be going on my own. CheersSuzie

25-04-06, 14:39
well i kind of have a life, its just not easy finding someone to go on holiday with, All my good friends are in relationships, and although i am sure i could go away with them i don't want to be piggy in the middle or to be set up with some friend of a friend, so thought i would go on my own, its either that or a week with my parents. and i would rather go on away somewhere warm, the closest my parents get to that is Jersey.Suzie

25-04-06, 15:03
On a more serious note Suzie, try Neilson; they do singles and when I worked for them a lot of singles came out.

Suzie
25-04-06, 15:06
Oh its a company for the more, joyfull type is it, what with all the coming out ;)Suzie

Pimpmaster Jazz
25-04-06, 15:16
Nope ? all 'free' in that you pay for the lot in the price of the holiday, except diving.

Suzie
25-04-06, 15:18

Pimp, you should ask for commission. Reckon a trip out next march looks good, get away from the soggy bridleways of the UK.

Pimpmaster Jazz
25-04-06, 15:36
Muff diving can be free aswell...;-)Mister P – you mean like last month?:-D

Most companies don't charge extra for single places they just charge if you want a single room-I've just just got back from Montenegro and shared with people I've never met now i just have some new friends who enjoy the same things as me.Go on book something and take pot luck with room sharing

Hope it gets better soon.If someone shot my cat I'd rip the bastard's f***ing face off and then make him eat it.

Mustrum everyone - sanity and reasoning personified!!!Actually, although not a big fan of cats, I am still of the opinion that this is sort of crime is abhorrent - animals are unable to defend themselves, and when they do, we as humans then put them down!!!!!I have worked a lot with animals on farms and have always treated them as humanely as possble, even when putting them down to stop them suffering. 1st a cat and then what, a human - and a lot of the time these people get away with it because they have had a poor or bad upbringing.......I don't give a f**k. They have still committed a crime!!!!!makes me very angry!!!!!

26-04-06, 09:31
Oh btw I came on this thread to offer my services to Suzie, I will go on holiday with you, just so that you do not have to pay a single person's supplement. I like the cut of your jib and think you have spunk!!

Mister Khomenni
26-04-06, 09:44
why would anyone think this is a troll?I'm married, but I could divorce as long as you are happy with a registry office.

Mustrum everyone - sanity and reasoning personified!!!yep, that's me!PS, FLaP, I suspect that she does indeed have spunk.

26-04-06, 10:58
SuzieMy sister has been on a few adventure type holidays on her own with similar companies to the one you first mentioned. I'm sure she didn't pay extra as long as she shared a room with another single female.What trails have you been using/found around Bicester so far?I have a mate cycles that way,I could ask him to note where he goes if you want some different ones

FLaP
26-04-06, 11:22
Maybe Suzie could ask Lucy if she would like to go on a cycling holiday?

Stephanos Wephanos
26-04-06, 11:24
Oh I'm sure they would have lots in common.

FLaP
26-04-06, 11:45
Might end up paying a single room supplement after all?!

Alan .....phwoagh!!

Excellent workJohn

26-04-06, 16:44
Nah Dan. The campsites on the (in)famous plage de Pampelonne are no more expensive than other capsites in the area. 144e for the three of us for a week at Easter on Kon Tiki. The pedalo was 5e and the kayak 8e.Edit to correct spelling should anybody be interested enough to Google it.

26-04-06, 16:45

I have been to Frejus quite a few times, i really like it there and the surrounding area, wouldnt fancy cycling in the summer though :)http://www.isabelmorgan.co.uk/images/France-Cote-d'Azur-map.gif

26-04-06, 16:55
thanks! At last you have recognised my superior knowledge!!!

JohnG
26-04-06, 17:13
Agreed Dan. not a place to go in July and August. La presqu'isle de St Tropez is one or the rare bits of the Côte d'Azur where the main road doesn't run along the coast. They're adding a few kilometres of bande cyclable every year too. If the users of the nudist beach were 30 years younger it would the ideal destination for you and your sunglasses.

DefenderDan(temporarily silenced)
26-04-06, 17:28
There was a nudist beach at Aix-Les-Bains......bit of a let down tbh :)On a geographical or tourism note, the surrounding area is very pretty and isnt over run with Brits.......an even better reason to go :)

27-04-06, 17:55
Ermm!Anyway...I can suggest Sierra cycling in southern spain about 20miles west of Malaga..I came back from there 3 weeks ago, weather was great, riding was rocky! But as far as im aware no supplements for being a single traveller..Right near the beach too for sunbathing!

FLaP
28-04-06, 12:13
Suzie - how is the holiday hunting going. I believe you are based nr Oxford, well I reckon you should contact Serge, he is on here sometimes, he is in the oxford area and might be able to show you some rides...];-0

No i actully never did the whole conversation with myself thing, thats very mentally ill, and i only posted up when Flap started to bring me in, was trying just to be a bit lurky in the background. thats just not fair to be outed by mike, i have been cheated out of trolling or being discovered in some sort or poiriot style all sitting in a room, one of you here is the troll.not happy
