Getting started, from scratch
Just found this site, have registered, and have three months to sort myself out.
I'm attending two weddings in Europe this summer - one in Denmark, another two weeks later in central France. Wouldn't it be great if I could get my hands on a bike and ride from A to B? Problem is, I have more questions than answers.
I land in Copenhagen, and fly out of Paris - which, I would think, makes any sort of rental no longer an option.
I'm not looking to get a major-league bike - I have lots of experience with 150cc scooters and auto-clutch bikes, and given the distance I'm travelling (under 1000km over 2 weeks) I don't need anything too serious (or expensive!).
If I were able to find a bike to purchase - would I even be able to get it registered/insured, and quickly? What sort of costs could I be looking at?
I'll leave the topic at that, for now. I just had the 'why don't you get a bike' idea planted in my head over the weekend, and your replies will serve as my starting point.
Thanks in advance for your tips!
