London Monaco Ride: The Story in Photos

We have all come back to earth after riding across France for the Blue Marine Federation. But since the ultra-pro Jonathan Bond’s photos from the London Monaco ride tell the story so beautifully here, I’m going to keep the words to a minimum and let Jonathan’s fantastic photos tell the story.

Please check out all of his work:

And it’s not to late to add to the fundraising so please donate anything you can here. All of the money the London Monaco ride raised (over £200,000 and counting) goes directly to helping protect specific ocean areas so fish stocks can have a chance to rebound.

And then we got right back on the climbs.

And more majestic climbs.

And then, after over 900 miles and 900 smiles…Monaco came into view.
