Cycling in Gibraltar
Gibraltar In A Nutshell
Upon visiting Gibraltar for the first time, a common comment is "What a shithole!" It's worth a visit though if only for a quick blast up The Rock to see the monkeys. Go soon though. The local government is getting tired of the apes rampaging through town and has started to export them.
Where and When I Went
4th September 2011 and again in August 2015. Across the border, into town and up the rock. No need for a map.
The Rock is impressive. The petrochemical plant across the bay is less so.
Gibraltar's Road Quality
The roads are alright but there's a lot of traffic.
Gibraltar's Accommodation & Costs
Unless you're minted, don't stay in Gibraltar. Get a room in La Linea just over the border. It'll be a third of the price of a Gibraltarian one.
Gibraltar may be known for its cheap, duty-free booze but this only applies to the shops. Its pub are considerably more expensive than Spain's.
English is the official language. Most locals also speak Spanish.
Only one, Spain, but who knows for long that will remain the case if Brexit is ever finalised.
Reasons To Go To Gibraltar
The apes, the overwhelming stench of petrochemicals.
