Scotland to Spain April 2013


I'm planning to make a trip to Spain with my dad (two bikes) from Scotland to Marbella next April. 

I'd like to hear from anyone who's done a UK to Spain trip to find out what the best way to go is...We're not sure whether to ride through France or get a ferry from UK to Santander/Bilbao...We're giving ourselves three weeks to do it (obviously a few beers once we get to Marbella will be in order). 

Another option may be to fly to Spain and hire bikes (from say, Malaga)? Has anyone done this? 

We'll have around 3 years biking experience by then. I'm on a Suzuki VL1500 (Intruder) cruiser and my dad's on a BMW K1200GT. 

Any hints and tips you give me would be great! Many thanks.

Si :smile
