Day 36 - St Maxime & St Tropez, 24 milesMay 21, 2016 in France ⋅
Start of the beach leg of the tour today with a nice relaxed ride round to Saint-Tropez from Sainte Maxime and back again. Some serious yachts in both harbours especially St Tropez and with Cannes Festival still on their were even bigger moored out at sea. Money money money!!!
The evening was all about cup finals with Utd beating an unlucky Palace in the FA Cup then the big one for the French with Marseille taking on PSG in the French equivalant and wow are PSG hated down here. Ended up spending most of the evening chatting a Fresh couple from Marseille who were away for the weekend planning their wedding later this year. After a fair few watching the football I was invited to visit and Facebook details were swapped. This for them bought great laughter as it turns out Pipe in French means a certain type of 'job'! I had wondered why I'd always gotten a strange look when checking into hotels!
Short ride round to Frejus and Saint Raphael tomorrow and a bit more beach time.Read more
