Re: how to buy a used bike in Spain

they didn't say "cheap" they said second hand. that's quite a trip they've got planned and I personally wouldn't set out on anything less than a well maintained, entry level 'serious' road bike. (they start at about 300euros from Decathlon/Halfords) Obvs for the same money a better bike wi...

Re: how to buy a used bike in Spain

Thats quite a journey. I would buy something descent for a journey like that. It is easily doable but if you want to enjoy it dont buy a decathlon 69 euro bike. However a decathlon 400, 700 or 1000euro bikes are the best money can buy. in fact I guarantee the 69euro will be the best around for that...

Re: Tourism Registry for holiday lets

presumably you have air-con and heating installed in all living rooms and bedrooms in order to get your certificate from the tourist board? we have an old village house for which A/c units would be expensive and ugly. I'm not sure how to get round this conundrum. is there an official solution for ol...

Re: World Cup 2018

fortunately the Tour de France has arrived just in time with British interest to the fore with Geraint Thomas, Chris Froome and Dan Martin all doing well. ITV has brilliant live and highlights coverage

Re: occasional internet access

I'm thinking a Spanish PAYG sim with movistar is the way to go (unless somebody tells me different). just back from latest visit, partner and I both with EE but again had no sniff of a signal ("NO SERVICE") all week. we were with 2 friends who were with other UK providers (1 of them BT) an...

occasional internet access

hi folks what's the best way for accessing internet when staying at holiday home in Valle de Lecrin area. ideally we'd love to be able to stream iplayer/NowTV etc as well as the usual browsing. I don't seem to be able to find a PAYG deal that gives enough download for streaming or alternatively a mo...

Re: Day trip to Sierra Nevada

we drive up regularly to ski/snowboard using standard tyres and hire car. they usually keep the road clear as far the pradollano (the resort) but chains needed beyond there if the weather has been bad (or good depending on you perspective)
