i am looking to buy a bike in barcelona late september and ride through france, italy, slovenia and down to split in croatia over four weeks or so. can anyone give me some tips on this journey such as parts i may like to catch a train though, places to check out, if this amount of time is practical, expensive areas to look out for etc. i am planning to camp most of the time. any info appreciated!!!

Well, I wouldn't cross the spanish border by bike, it's some good 30 or 40 kilometres that go all the way up the mountains, to France, and there are way too many trucks to be safe in that road... just an opinion though. What's your itinerary anyway? Where do you plan to cross the border between france and spain?

hmmm, maybe this is a bad idea. might save myself a few headaches and catch buses and trains instead. but it was good in theory!!

Not necessarily a bad idea, but your original post suggests that you spent all of two seconds on research and planning, which is not enough time.
