I am riding the Vuelta 2012! Not racing it, just riding it. Unfortunately I will miss the first couple of days, but from then I will take my MTB, complete with panniers loaded with camping gear, and ride the whole lot, including transitions.

Well, most of the transitions at least. The problem is the long transition from Barcelona to Ponteareas. Even though this happens over a rest day, I just don't think I have time to ride the 1100 odd km. So I am looking for someone who can give me a lift. Anyone able to?  7 7
