  1. My wife and are planning on visiting Croatia in July and I am planning to take my folding recumbent. My wife plans to rent a diamond frame in Split. After doing some research, including reading about your trips, we’re thinking of starting in Split and taking the ferry to Brac, Hvar, (Vis?), Korkula, and Mljet. I’ve read your descriptioin of Korcula. Any experience on the others? Any tips on plane transport? I see you also took a trailer.

    Thanks for any help.

      Funny I was just looking at my pictures from Croatia today, You will love it. It is beautiful and inexpensive if you stay in local rooms not hotels. The local rooms can be excellent, cost about the same as a campground and are very convenient. Plus you get to meet the people.

      I did the trip with a folding recumbent also .. my Sat-R Day, the case becomes a trailer.

      You may not be able to go to many of the islands with your bikes .. many of the boats are passengers only. Hard to be sure until you get there, if things are slow you can probably convince the captain to take your bikes for a few bucks but be sure he agrees to take you back. However, there is a coastal ferry system that will be happy to take you and your bike everywhere they go. They hit the major ports and biggest islands. One option is an over night on the ferry, you save the cost of a room. Just get a room as high on the boat as possible. We were in a lower room and the diesel fumes were very bad.

      You can’t miss Dubrovnik … it is the gem of the trip.

      We flew from Boston to Zagreb because we found a deal. You can fly from Dublin to Dubrovnik and save the day long bus trip, not many trains in Croatia. Or you can fly to Italy and take the ferry to Split or Dubrovnik. The trip through Dublin is the cheapest from Boston .. just check the schedule carefully.

      Not many roads in Croatia but people are very forgiving of bicycles. The only practical way to do the coast is to island hop .. the coastal road is narrow and filled with a lot of trucks and traffic.

      Don’t forget to are pretty close to Venice in Northern Croatia and close to Montenegro when you are in Dubrovnik. But most all plan to spend a few days in Dubrovnik and Split.

      I highly recommend getting a copy of Nelles Travel Pack for Croatia – The Adriatic Coast. It has everything you will need for travel information.

      I’ll be happy to try to answer any questions you have. Try to plan plenty of time, the weather is beautiful most of the time but as you move north from Split the winds can come down from the mountains with cold heavy rain. We hopped on the train and went to Venice when that happened. Turned out to be a good thing.

      Enjoy .. Roland
