French and Spanish south coast / Eurovelo 8

Hi
I want to start cycling from Nicea to Gibraltar next week. I have never been in France or Spain but I planned that my road will be similar to Eurovelo 8. I checked Eurovelo 8 at official website and it seems to me that roads in France and Spain are not realised so far. What does it mean? Does it difficult to ride a bike on a south coast?

Eurovéloroute 8 en France

Hi,

Roughly 50% of Ev8 is built in France, here are 2 links to fin out more:

Also, it depends which bike you'll use, if you take large tyres (32mm or more), you could follow the "littoral de la Camarque" from Ste Marie de la Mère. It seems also that you can follo le canal du Rhone à Sète from ... sète or Frontignan, half way on the Voie Verte from Frontignan du Vic. I saw some cyclists there but I don't know how easy it is.

Bonne route,
Philippe
