On the cycle from Stes Maries de la Mer, we were instructed to go along the forshore – which although bumpy with stones it eventually (when we worked out which path we should follow) turned into sand. While this may look great from your computer it was about 35°+ this day and we had been cycling in the heat for over an hour. Don’t forget the mozzies. We may have trained for cycling – but not these conditions. Thankfully it did not last long.
