INGUN’S STORY

“Many years ago I fell in love with the Cote d azur for many reasons.
Not simply the blue sea and limitless blue sky but also for it’s inspiring and impressive culture of cycling.
Over these years I have come to know and love the many scenic roads and Alpine routes.
There are also many tough, but fun competitions here.
I myself have taken part in the world famous Paris, Nice challenge.
I have also competed in the tough ‘Ironman’ Nice 4 times finishing 5th in 2016.
Taking things more leisurely, there are so many beautiful rides locally.
I am particularly fond of routes that take me through the picturesque villages, such as Tourette or Gourdon. Or the climb to the top of col de Eze is worth every breath just for the view.
I have had a busy 2019 season having competed in World Championship in half ironman in Nice, done a 520  kilometer endurance race in Norway and the infamous ‘Norseman’ triathlon also in Norway. I am very proud to say I won the coveted black T shirt for completing this latter epic event.”
SAMPLE RIDE: COL DE VENCE

Col de Vence is one of the most popular climbs in the Côte d’Azur. From Antibes it can be a quick ride of 2 – 2.5 hours up and down with 50 km and 1000 elevation gain. But it can be extended; passing some more picturesque villages, into car free roads in the mountains. Extend it to 93 km with 1600 elevation gain, which will take approx 4.5 hours on the bike; passing la Gaude, stopping at St Jeannet for a coffee, a stop at Vence to fill up the bottles with fresh water from the fountains, into Coursegoules beautiful scenery, breathtaking views from Gourdon where you can see “all of the Côte d’Azur”. Gourdon is an old village that is also popular for paragliding. Finish via Biot and lastly take the bord de mer back to Antibes.

SAMPLE RIDE: A FULL DAY’S RIDE
Starting from Antibes, then around the iconic Cap d’Antibes – home to the rich and famous. Then through well known Cannes. The climbing starts from Mandelieu towards the mountain top village Tanneron, famous for it’s sea of yellow mimosa flowers. Then a well deserved decent back to sea level at St Raphael for lunch. The coast road back to Antibes takes you through the amazing Esterel with it’s famous towers of red rock. This is about a 135 km ride and 2100 m elevation gain, moving time on the bike is about 6 hours. A treat for the eye.
