I am aiming to complete this trip in about four weeks and am camping all the way. The route takes in the Normandy landing beaches before heading diagonally south east from Caen to Lyon and the Alps, making an ascent of the Col de La Bonnett (2800m) before arriving in Nice and Monte Carlo. One day off for good behaviour and then it’s the return leg via Provence, including Mont Ventoux for the second ascent in two years only this time plus tent etc. After crossing the Massif Central it’s down hill all the way back to Cherbourg and Gillingham!
