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 rocked some descents.

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.
