    Getting a lick on, on the road to Colobrièrs

    Hi again guys  :152: well after the rather slow tour of Grimaud village  :006: this video takes the road to Colobrièrs, and we're getting some speed on  :008:  but I have to be careful as the road is damp in places, with leaves, rocks, sand and even a stray dog, (look carefully he's in there !!) that can surprise the unwary biker. This portion of road is again one of the special stages on the Rally du Var, as you can see not a lot of room for errors, enjoy the ride and keep the encouraging comments comming, it takes a lot of time editing and uploading to youtube to get the link.

    Hi BRITINFRANCE, sounds a daft question but is the tarmac as grippy as it looks at the end of the vid.

    The dog looked more scared of you coming up on it.

    I just love the way the majority of drivers over there move out of your way, brilliant.

    Thanks fo riding and posting, its much appreciated when its freezing cold and blowing a hoolie.
    Thanks.BIF.  :028: :031:
    keep it shiny side up !!!

    Nice vid  :152:
    They are great roads and often well surfaced for the cyclists - who are clearly mad doing those hills in summer heat.
    My favourite memory of colobriers is having a marron glace in a cafe under the trees.  :062:

    Very nice Tony and so quiet of traffic?

    I bet its a bit of a surprise when an oncoming vehicle 'suddenley' appears

    Cheers

    Hi Guys bit late but work has kept me busy  :110:

    Scotsy; it great here in the winter no tourists, but as we all know be aware  :005:

    Yasko : thanks again for your encouragement :028:

    Dave56; cheers for your continued support  :152:

    Martymouse; I was there again just last month with Navigator and we stopped in the same Bistro no doubt as you on the village square,, cold coke for me

    pistnbroke; the roads are well grippy, but at the end of the video it was a new surface and damp so had to be carefull (a little), the drivers here are not as good as the English when they are here on holiday, they give way to everyone through fear i thnk :008: I know you have had some scorching weather there in the uk allready this year,, better than here so ride safe and have fun  :152:
