It took a week of pedalling to complete the seven-leg journey.

1100 kilometres. That was the journey completed by some 100 cyclists who left London on September 19 to cycle to Monaco . The plucky ‘peloton’ arrived in the Principality on Tuesday September 26, and was greeted by Prince Albert II in person on the Place du Palais Princier.

The Sovereign congratulated the men and women on their sporting but also charitable achievement, as the funds raised are being donated to the Blue Marine Foundation, a charity that strives to protect the seas and oceans by combatting overfishing. Speaking to Monaco Info, the Director of the environmental organiation Claire Brook made no secret of her delight: “We were greeted by the Prince, which is fabulous. Now we are celebrating, because it was a really tough challenge for the cyclists, but it is for a good cause,” she said with a smile.
