  1. I've booked up for a road cycling tour of Corsica later this year. I'm wondering am I better to buy a bike box and transport my own bike a (carbon fibre) or hire one of their bikes (Giant I believe)?
     
  2. i've just returned from majorca,i was too late to hire a bike(apparently you reserve a bike in December for the April:wacko:) and its soooo much nicer riding your own bike,you know everything about it,mine had a triple:thumbsup: for the mountains which the hire bikes didnt etc....had no problems with Easyjet in transportation from Luton ,i used a very well padded bag with lots of pipe lagging(write on each piece of lagging where it goes i.e down tube,front forks etc) and bubble wrap.and it took under a hour to put the bike back together....Take your own bike i would say and spend the euros on some nice icy cold beers:tongue:
