I'd prefer B&B style accommodation, and want to hire a bike, because taking one from/to Australia would just be too stressful for me. My main preferences for the accommodation are:
- reasonably comfortable beds.
- free wifi that works (doesn't have to be super-fast, just reliable).
- breakfast included.
- anywhere in or near Le Bourg (i.e. anywhere between Allemond and Le Clapier).
- secure bike storage (this is probably the most important feature).
- can't think of anything else to add to this list, but if I left something out, feel free to mention it!
As for the bike hire, I'm just looking for any road bike with 50/34 front and 11..28 (or 32) rear, endurance geometry, drop bars, reasonably light, i.e. nothing out of the ordinary really.
Regards & thanks,
