Don’t go on a Croatia cycling vacation if...
… you want the Tour de France. Most cycling vacations in Croatia are 50km/day trips. It’s too beautiful to race past. For more taxing, you can go mountain biking in the inland national parks.
… triathlon style sports hotels are what you are after. Small, rural guesthouses with friendly receptions are the Croatian way to go.
… you crave superfoods. You’ll get good food, but traditional Croatian. Lots of fish too, which is super. Cycling in Istria will up the pasta intake, with a strong Italian influence throughout the region.
… you want utter serenity. The crowds do hit certain spots in summer. Spring, autumn and winter, you’ll have the coast to yourself though.
