Cycling in Sicily by achilti on 9 August 2006 9:51pm
 
Hi all, 1st time posting. Has anyone been cycling in/on Sicily? I am going in 3 weeks time but cannot find a decent map. Also, as we will be camping does anyone know of good sites. We fly into Palermo and have 16 days on the island and normaly manage about 65 kms (40 miles) per day.
Any advise would be great.
Thanks

A warm welcome achilti. I'm afraid i haven't been on a bike in years so I have no travel advice. You could try camping organisations for details of campsites. All the best.

Hello Achilti,
Once again, I'd recommend trying Stanfords on Long Acre, London WC2 (Tube: Covent Garden or Leicester Square).
They stock a wide range of maps for Italy as a whole, including Hiking guides/maps and I should imagine cycling guides.
If you cannot visit the store in person, try their website, www.stanfords.co.uk .

I hope this helps you. I visited Sicily in June. It's suffered so many invasions, the place is a wonderous Eclectic mix of many cultures. I recommend it highly.

I've brought this forward for soph..47 as it's the only topic title in the first 6 pages or so of the Travel section which is about cycling.

Hi again soph..47. There is a topic in the Welcome and Introductions section called 'Please let me know (VITALS)' where peri.. can take information from to put in the Vital Statistics section. My vitals are there. You could possibly put your vitals there too.
