The power of the people

Photo by David Churchill

For those of you who think all I do is fly in helicopters and take selfies of my socks, you’re only partly right. The truth is I’ve been working like a dog (and as sick as one too) since I helicoptered out of Monaco after the Yacht Show.

Bonjour La mer!

Of course I’m not looking for sympathy, but I literally haven’t excersised since the magic last day of the magic London to Monaco Ride either. And I miss everything about riding across France with those people who rocked up to the Palace of Monaco to raise money for the Blue Marine Foundation two weeks ago. But I miss the people more than anything else. I just wish I had photos of everyone!

So, instead of doing my normal (however late) ride recap (for days 9 and 10) I just want to send sincere shout outs to every single person who I had the sincere pleasure of meeting, riding with, joking with, drinking coffee with, wearing matching kit with, acting like a rock star with in the clubs of Monaco, getting public massages with, eating jambon fromage sandwiches on amazing turn-offs in Provance, and just “being” with on those wonderful days in late September that I’m so grateful to be able to be there for.

This is the definition of a security blanket and simply the best photo ever taken.

No this is the best photo ever taken

The amazing group in this photo includes German, Irish, Brits, French, Russian, and yours tuly from the US of A. These types of gatherings make the world a better place.

And we haven’t even talked about the yacht show yet. Stay tuned.
