Chateau Queyras

Stunning start to our ride, smiles on our faces

Still loving it!

Pine needle forests, great mountain biking terrain
Dropping down towards Colmars

Well deserved beer at Colmars

Tough riding high up in the Queyras National Park

Stunning & deep Gorge

Chain off again!

Another steep climb up carrying bike

The sea can be seen - happy moment

Steep steps down into Monaco
Not too far to go to the warm Mediteranean seas
May be the last day but the terrain not any easier

Fabrice pointing out Monaco way below
Great welcoming views
Casino Monte Carlo

The beach at Monaco - we had made it!

Going home ! :-(
