Cycling has allowed me to discover many new places around the world however finding my next destination is always a challenge. There are many factors to consider such as weather, price, transportation of my bike, etc. so I have to choose carefully. After much research and a lot of help from Cycle Côte d’Azur I decided to head for Nice and spend 7 days cycling in the Alps in early October 2013. I did not regret my decision; they were some of the most beautiful rides I have ever done and the surrounding area also provided a lot to see such as Old Nice, Cannes, Monaco and the Alp villages. Not only did I enjoy cycling some of the most epic rides in the world, I also got to explore amazing cities. Oh yeah…and I got engaged in Monaco!
