2. FOOTBALL offers the world clichés; RUGBY produces facial deformity; HOCKEY provides an acceptable outlet for psychotic violence; CRICKET alone breeds myths. More quotes here.


What a great time we had on our Tour de France II, April 2006

Acting on a recommendation from Lodi CC in Italy, in 2006 we played the Riveria (formerly Cabris) Cricket Club on Saturday and Entrecasteaux CC on the Sunday in the Var Region of Provence.  And we had a fab time, with especial thanks to Maurice and Ann, and to Brian for all their help. Man of the Tour Ex Capn Ben shows the German how he would have placed the field if he had still been in charge

 

Local links: see http://www.provenceweb.fr/e/var/entrecas/entrecas.htm ). for Entrecasteaux CC see the club website here. Riviera CC play at St Vallier de Thiey . Above is the Tour de la Faye col and the road to Digne, which is on the Route Napoleon .

We all stayed at The Hotel la Villa Tosca , right in the middle of Cannes - an excellent and inexpensive hotel with lovely staff, rooms and bang on the for the local boozers and nighteries.
