San Remo to Nice

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Surviving day 4 and the group letting me sit at the head of the "snake" into Vence.

What did you think of your group leader?

Bertrand had wealth of local knowledge which was great to draw on, and the site of the van part way up some of the climbs was more than welcome. He was more than willing to pitch in and help fix the bikes if needed or locate bits we asked for - greatly appreciated!

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

As an absolute novice I thought I'd bitten off more than I could chew but was lucky to have a good base fitness from running in the hills. The only thing I'd say is for those in a similar position is try something easier first and then go for this
