French Tickler

Set off on Friday 9th June for Dover, destination Draguignan, near Nice in the sunny south of France, the intention being to ride the famous N85, Route Napolean, and hopefully whilst in the South of France we would also get the opportunity to ride some of the (in)famous Col’s . Full report & video’s etc to follow

Looks great Gus, look forward to the report!
