I'll be coming to Korcula for two weeks from the 16th of August, and want to take my bike, for when I get bored of being inactive. I'm a keen mountain biker, and would prefer to take my own bike, as rental bikes can be basic and in poor repair.
Firstly, what sort of riding can I find? Is there enough rocky, bumpy stuff offroad to justify bringing a full suspension bike, or would I get away with my more general mountain bike?
Are there are local mountain bike clubs who meet regularly, who wouldn't mind a crazy english guy joining them on a ride or two? Although I can look at a map, local knowledge is always best for finding out where to ride.
Is there lots of thorny vegetation around offroad? Do I need to bring lots of tubes incase of punctures, and are there any local shops which sell bike stuff like inner tubes?
Please reply via the forum, as I don't seem to be able to create an account on these boards at the moment.
