I was advised to move this question to a new thread so here it is: I also completed LEJOG this summer (solo, unsupported, camping) and was looking for another challenge for next spring. I've done some research and have almost decided on the Channel to Med. I bought the France en Velo book, which provides a really detailed route description for a route that curves from St Malo to Nice covering around a thousand miles. In fact I nearly set off on it during the last week of September but decided against it, which was just as well because the weather in the South of France was shocking then. I priced the train from Newark to Portsmouth at £40, the channel crossing from Portsmouth to St Malo at £45 and the train back from Nice to London at £90 and £25 from London to Newark. All quite reasonable I thought. I planned to stay in camp sites or wild camp and use the odd hotel if the weather turned foul or at the half way point as a treat. Does anyone have any experience of this route?
