The brightest star
Continuing along a road that hugs the sea and offers fantastic views, we reach Cannes, the pearl of the French Riviera and our final destination. Everyone knows it for its Festival, the Croisette and the red carpets, but Cannes offers so much more than the draw of the movie stars. You can relax in the sun on golden beaches, or browse the stalls at the Marché Forville covered market, taking in the intense scent of the herbs, the bright hues of the flowers, fruit and vegetables, and the cheerful calls of the vendors. For those who want to appreciate the city’s history, a visit to the Le Suquet district is a must. Located on a hill, it is home to a medieval castle and a gothic church, for an atmosphere that is light years from the glamour for which Cannes is famous.
It is here that our trip concludes, having travelled between past and present, sea and mountain, nature and culture. A two-wheeled adventure with the wind on our skin, to remember forever.
