Breeze & Wyles completes ‘un petit Tour de France’

In keeping with probably Britain’s greatest ever sporting success on the Champs Elysees on Sunday 22nd of July 2012 when for the first time the country saw its first winner of the Tour de France, Breeze & Wyles Solicitors LLP attempted to emulate some of the effort required by Bradley Wiggins in his achievement. When I say some I mean a very very small part.

Supported by Barclays Bank plc, two partners of Breeze & Wyles Solicitors LLP, Brendan O’Brien and Murray Fraser (along with four other people completed) a 320 mile trip around Provence and the Cote d’Azur.

Day 1: Nice to Draguignan
Day 2: Draguignan to Cassis
Day 3: Cassis to Le Lavandou
Day 4: Le Lavandou to Frejus
Day 5: Frejus to Nice arriving on Bastille Day

Apart from a crash in Toulon when one of the cyclists decided to follow defunct tram lines rather than the cycle part progress was uneventful. No training could have prepared the participants for the near 40 degree celsius temperatures faced and the 10,000 feet climbed throughout the ride.

It was a pleasure to arrive in Nice at the end of the ride on Bastille Day and join in the celebrations with the locals.

Once again many thanks to our Sponsors Barclays Bank plc who provided support to the team in their efforts.
