Blog for the day:


Wow what a day. Started on the Italian, French, Mediterranean border and finished in Agay (šŸ¤­, as soon as I saw the name, I had to come). The famous landmarks and scenery were just amazing. Could have been a little warmer or at least blue sky, but it was fine. Drivers were in the whole good, the cyclists on the other hand! Thought I would be out the TdF on the first stage. Just morons. Loads of good cyclists about though and there must have been a supercar rally on as loads of Lambo's & Ferraris went past in Monaco. Visited Philippe Gilbert's shop which was cool. Think Prince Albert whizzed by in his cavelcade too. Just seen so much, been amazing. Mapping and routing all worked, glad I did the street view again last week just to check. Met some random guy from south London who came over and chatted as was in Brixton kit, which was nice. No pastries today!!! Good day to be on the bike.
