Pretty girls with cute accents on cool bikes. Is this a great universe or what?

Love the Vanvans. I'm guessing you'll be traveling light?

They have a cult following in the UK; folks off-road them because their intended purpose was beaches/sand etc.

And if the going gets too rough, two people can lift them over obstacles.

MCN (UK) did a piece on VanVans crossing France, off-road, a few months ago.

I should be sharing the Barcelona-Valencia-Gibraltar roads with you starting about 15 Sep. I'll watch for those VanVans.
