                                                Luxury Coach Travel                                               custom Built Trailers
                                                Every year European Bike Express is proud to boast of the
                                                high standard in Coach Travel that it has to offer.
                                                This is due to the fact that the unique modifications made
                                                to our Coaches onboard facilities make them by far the
                                                most comfortable way to travel. The focal point for many
                                                customers are the Club Class Seats which have been custom
                                                made to provide more than enough leg room between you
                                                and the seat in front and thus allows you to stretch out and
                                                enjoy the journey. This has been done by removing seats on
                                                both the upper and lower decks.
                                                To achieve this we have balanced quantity alongside quality.
                                                All our coaches are twin deck, fully air conditioned with Club
                                                Class seats that have extendable calf supports and recline
                                                to 45°. The coach seating comprises of panoramic seats at
                                                the front, table seats in the mid-section and 44 club class
                                                seats with extendable leg rests. On the lower deck of the
                                                coach you will find a table seating area which can be used as
                                                a dining area to enhance your meal time enjoyment (except
                                                in peak season).

 Fixed Base Holidays In Rosas, Spain
The Holiday with a Difference
We know that touring is a very acceptable form of pleasure. Enjoying the sights and
sounds of new locations gives you renewed exhilaration, provides the senses with
limitless enjoyment and turns a cycling tour into a cycling paradise. We also know
that some enjoy cycling with the comfort of a fixed base to return to, guaranteed hot
water and a comfortable bed.
The Fixed Base Holiday blends the beauty of cycling with guaranteed comfort and
enjoyment. To cycle alongside lagoons, enjoy historic architecture and capture the
warmth of the sun adds comfort to the fact you are being cared for in comfortable
accommodation.
Santa Margarita – In the Bay of Rosas, Spain.
Many customers are already aware of the fantastic cycling opportunities in Spain especially
around the nature reserves and typically Spanish villages boasting relaxed hospitality.
The Hotel Marian Platja has a lift, swimming pool, tennis court, disco, money exchange and
each room has a phone and satellite T.V. as well as its own private toilet/shower. Sea view
rooms are also available at a supplement. Bike Storage is available (recently extended).
This area is of particular interest as there are many interesting places within easy cycling
distance. For non cyclists, the area has much to offer and it is therefore possible for an avid
cyclist to holiday with a non cycling partner and both have an enjoyable time.
The cycling in this area is varied. Those who like to ride long distances can explore
the regions of the Pyrenees Mountains or the fascinating nature reserves of Emporda
where there are around 330 species of birds nesting in the area and those who prefer
only short distances can easily ride into Empuriabrava or Rosas along the safe and
flat paths.
There are some very good routes as well along quiet roads towards the French Border and
through the National Park area of Cap de Creus towards Cadaques, Llanca, Portbou and
the lower slopes of the Pyrenees. You may wish to cycle south to L’Escala and through large
flat areas abundant with fruit orchards. Alternatively you can see the sights inland by riding
to Figueres and beyond to Banyoles and the surrounding volcanic natural park and then
up to the Pyrenees.
