Do it your­self

TRAVEL

With no rail­way sta­tion, Saint-tropez is al­most im­pos­si­ble to reach other than by car. The near­est air­ports are Nice or Mar­seille – both of which are well worth a stopover.

AC­COM­MO­DA­TION

Cy­clist stayed at the Ibis in nearby Con­golin, where dou­ble or twin rooms start at €80. A posher op­tion would be to stay in Saint-tropez.

BIKE HIRE

There are plenty of bike shops around Saint-tropez, al­though your best bet for rent­ing a bike is prob­a­bly Rolling Bikes (rolling-bikes.com). It’s re­ally only an emer­gency op­tion, so don’t ex­pect any­thing too fancy. Bet­ter to bring your own.

THANKS

Many thanks to Eric and Loïc at or­gan­is­ers Go­lazo for securing our place in the event, along with sort­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion and a speedy moto driver for our pho­tog­ra­pher.
