  1. Following various and sometimes amiguous news about recent Spanish road regulations as they affect
    cyclists, I want to hear from anyone who has cycled on the coast road between Barcelona and
    Gibraltar within the last eighteen months or so.

    Three of us are doing a fast road bike ride from Canterbury to Gibraltar at Easter. The last time I
    cycled the whole length of that coast in 1977 it was a busy road, but now it is apparently mostly
    dual carriageway. New Spanish road regulations seem to ban cyclists from dual carriageways...

    That road is definitely not strictly coastal around the Costa Del Azahar (Alcala, Peniscola) because
    I tried to hug the coast and ended up on a shingle beach about five miles south of Alcoceber. It's
    possible to stay within a mile or so of the coast around there but the small roads are poorly
    signposted.

    If you mean the A-road, then it has good, wide hard shoulders, but Spanish drivers are
    uniformly INSANE and I kept off it for much of the time. It wasn't very serious cycling; just
    pottering, really.
