Great trail yesterday guys, try following that amazing adventure,

Monaco George will be taking the lead as I sadly I am away. We aim to car share where possible, save the planet and share the fuel cost. If you can offer a lift please post contact details here. If you need a lift connect with George. Please be proactive here, the umbilical cord to my computer has long since been cut.

Journey time from Nice airport approx 50 mins 37 kms Bd du Mercantour/Route de Grenoble/M6202Please check your own route and plan to leave in time to make a 9.30am start. We will wait max 15 mins.
