7 Men, 6 Bikes, 1 Van - Cycling from Nice to Pisa

Cycling : A Tour de France & Italy 

The Sporting Blog's very own Golf course reviewer, Malc Ford, and 6 pals are heading to the South of France for some sun, some drinks, some good food and around 280 miles of cycling in 4 days. Why? Who knows... but we will be checking in with them each day to find out!

Check this post regularly from Weds 21st to follow their progress, see some pictures and be grateful you are in the beer garden!

DAY 1 - A gentle introduction... via a few bars.

Just the 8.5 miles to start with from the Airport to Centre Ville.... 

A tough start....

and so it begins....

Day 2 - Nice to Albenga - A few peaks!

Day 2 featured a few poses, some near misses and an appearance by some fella called Chris Froome. 

 

Day 3 - Albenga to Genoa
