A note about weather:
From March, the day temperature is cool for comfortable cycling and in April you can expect temperate evenings. From May, the average sea temperature is 19 celcius and pleasant for longer baths. In summer months the temperatures are higher but with the option of an ebike the rides are comfortable even for the hardest climbs . From September comfortable temperatures are dominant again. Also, October and November are still good travel months, with small chance of rain and average sea temperature 21-22 Celcius.
Surface and terrain
You cycle to 95% on paved roads and only some km on easy dirt roads. You ride mainly on small asphalt roads, and in the few areas on wider roads, there is almost no traffic. We avoid the high ways and the croweded road. At each stage there are some short and some long slopes to master.
