    Sospel - Menton (Easter Sunday, afternoon)

    We'd been toying with the idea of doing this route down to the coast since starting to plan our Riviera trip. Adrian and I clubbed together to define/design the route. The idea was to take in as much singletrack as possible with a mix of human and vehicle-assisted ascending. I'm glad we decided to go ahead with it because as luck would have it, this ride with it's combination of all types of singletrack imaginable, as well as the stunning views of the coast, turned out to be the highlight of the weekend. Total vertical descent was about 2000m with a long tough climb in the middle. Total length was 32km according to Adrian's GPS.
