Looking for some knowledge on planning a road trip. My son and I will be cycling from the Channel to the Med next summer. To keep costs down, I'm considering camping, perhaps not all the time, but a fair amount.
Question is, in the height of summer, would you advise pre-booking campsites? We are embarking on a 3 week tour, my fear is we have a delay/issue at some point early, which causes a knock on effect all the way through, or forces us to keep going later than we should to meet a destination, rather than just simply stop and sleep.
The flip side is that if we don't book, might we turn up somewhere and struggle to get a pitch?
I've never done the rural France bit before, so any info appreciated - thanks.
I have a small trailer which carries gear for both of us. It'll be tightly packed for 3 weeks!
We parked the camping idea in favour of AirBnB, with one or two small hotels in the mix too. I have it all sorted bar the last night in Nice.
Latest dilemma: Mum will fly in on the Friday night and stay for 2 nights. Boyo and I will arrive Saturday (if we play our cards right).
She will be bringing the two oversized bike cases as well as her luggage. I'm thinking that a hotel close to the airport will be easier, she can effective drag them, or trolley them across. Question is, would we be able to cycle to such a hotel i.e. are there road limitations to cyclists in the Nice airport area?
Any local knowledge would be great. I'm sure there's alternatives - I'm all ears if there are.
