    Day 43 - Nice to Eze to Nice, 43 miles

    May 28, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    After making the decision to get the train to Grenoble to spend a few days riding in the French Alps and then through Switzerland rather than head into Italy (very hard decision and came down to the fact I really need to start heading in the direction of home!) I have a couple of days in Nice due to the train schedule.

    As a result went for a great ride today up into the hills around Nice then upto Eze a stunning hilltop town with tiny narrow lanes and incredible views out to sea. After the morning ride it was time for some beach time and I'd heard great things about Cap-d'Ail towards Monaco. A beach you have to drop down to and once there you are surrounded by high cliffs and crystal clear water. A couple of very cool beach clubs sit in the middle of the beach so ideal for a boozy afternoon.

    After the beach it was a good ride back along the coast to Nice and few drinks watching the Champions League final. Heavy rain predicted tomorrow so I see a good planning day coming on.
