P.A.C.A. Road Trip - Day 5

Today we are spending some time riding along the coastline. More traffic and traffic lights, but it’s a "must do" if you’re spending time in the PACA area.

We start after Cannes, just as well as we are right in the middle of the Cannes Film Festival, in Théoule-sur-Mer. Needless to say the weather is still beautiful, although quite windy today.

The group is solid, the most experienced riders advise their buddies; by now everyone is used to all-day riding and very much enjoying every minute of it. Solidarity is at its peak.

We ride along the Côte d’Azur, the sea views are breathtaking, we pass Saint-Raphaël and stop in Sainte-Maxime for a lunch break right on the beach, overlooking the Saint-Tropez bay. Some of us almost stayed there the rest of the afternoon!

We then ride again through the Massif des Maures towards Bormes-les-Mimosas and access our evening destination of Aix-en Provence through some picturesque back country roads.

Another great day - tonight is BBQ with JS, our local buddy who’s riding with us all week long. He’s my road mate, he rides a KTM Super Duke 1290 R, I ride a BMW K 1300 R.
