Hey! Who's up for a ride from UK to Monacco? Maybe two or more groups from Europe could meet up somewhere like Lyon and then do the Alps or the Marseille route together. Race the TGV train... And when you get there the beaches are thronging with the babes in thongs and nuthin else, playing volleyball in the surf. Can't beat it! End May is usually really good weather. I have done the trip a couple of times solo but thought it would better with some company.
