Short rides in 3 Mediterranean Ports(2 posts)

This is a long shot, but I thought I'd give you folks a try for ideas.

My company has awarded me a trip in April. It's a cruise, starts and ends in Barcelona, one day stop in Villafranche, France, one day stop in Portofino Italy. I'm obviously stuck to the ships schedule (it's a German boat, so it WILL leave on time). Anyone have any experience with day rides in these areas. I will not have my bike, so I need a renter as well.

Like I said, lots of limitations but if anyone has suggestions for any finding some saddle time I'd appreciate it.

I've been to Portofino several times and riding there would be tricky--you'd need to figure out how to get out of the immediate area first (basically it's a tiny town with one road that runs south from there, and it is very narrow and flat and has wide buses going back and forth), and I don't know what your time frame is. It would probably be more hassle than it's worth. Also been to Barcelona a few times, but, again, haven't attempted to ride there. Good luck!
