Day five of Mark and Louisa's cycle to MIPIM begins with an extra hour in bed! The team head out (slightly) more rested of a chilly Valence and through Grignan, a 17th century commune where the temperature starts to rise.
Lunch at Tulette follows and then the group head into the fast, flat and windy vineyards! Next the riders reach Bonnieux, a hillside historic sandstone village.
Flat rides shift to hilly climbs for most of the afternoon with slow, winding inclines through pretty French villages as the peloton continues south.
The day's last ride brings our cyclists into Aix en Provence where drinks are had and stories are told still with almost 200km left to go before the arrival into Cannes and the MIPIM conference.
