    First tour plans

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Hey there. First post here.

    I'm planning my first tour (Dublin, Ireland to a small town in Scotland). As I've never done any touring before I'm looking for some suggestions and/or encouragement.

    I've yet to decide if I will train up to Belfast and get a Ferry across or if I should cycle that part too - obviously adds to the time/cost, but it might be nice to say I cycled the whole way (apart from the sea). I'm definitely cycling the Scotland part at any rate. I find it hard to gauge how much that would be taking on though, and if it's too much for a first timer.

    Any thoughts? I will be within 'rescue' range at all times as I'm going to visit a friend.


    Been poking around the forums a little today - seems like a nice place, glad I found it!

    Thanks

    Dorothy

    This sounds wonderful - when are you going?

    Be sure to put up lots of pictures. That will be a beautiful trip.

    I am planning August but that's very tentative. If anything it could be sooner. It's just a matter of getting my bike and preparing and having time off work.

    I will indeed take a lot of pictures. That's another thing to sort out - a camera.
