Between early July and End August, Im doing a loop of the Mediterranean from 3 to 9 oclock. Im riding my BMW X Challenge with soft luggage to northern Greece via the slab and then heading north through the Balkan region via Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia and Croatia, then slab across northern Italy/ southern France (probably fitting in some of the tracks on the Italy/France border, possibly Corsica, but less likely), then the length of the Pyrenees, northern Spain and the length of Portugal. Ill leave the bike in S Spain in preparation for a Christmas Morocco visit. Im looking for as much dirt as possible. The very approximate timeline is Early/mid/late July: Balkans Late July/early Aug: Alps Early/Mid Aug: Pyrenees Mid/Late August: N Spain and Portugal Mainly camping or cheap hotels/pensions. Anyone doing anything similar or live in the area and want to drink a beer? Hope no offence is taken if I say Im teaming up with a mate for the Pyrenees already, but always like riding with one or two people in interesting/ off-pavement areas. Ill drink a beer in the evening with anyone, but wasnt intending on helping to man-handle a novices big rig or lead somebody around who cant be bothered to navigate themselves = Lets call it a partnership of equals. Are you in the same place at the same time as me? Drop me a line via PM or an email via my website. Have a great summer.
