On Sunday, June 11, some twenty cycling enthusiasts took part in the first “39 Cycle Club” outing.
The group left 39, Monaco’s newest private sports club at 39 avenue Princesse Grace, for an aller-retour to Ventimiglia and then enjoyed brunch on the club’s terrace chatting to Calvin Watson of Aqua Blue Cycling.
As a follow-up, this weekend will see the launch of “39 Run Club” led by the club’s ambassador Paula Radcliffe, world record holder for women’s marathon since 2003.
As Lucy Earlam, Sports Manager at 39, told Monaco Life: “The Cycle Club was a great success and this Sunday, June 18, a 5km run with Paula is open to all abilities. Both the cycle and run clubs are free to everyone – it’s a non-profit community exercise.”
The run departs from the club at 9:30 am will be followed by brunch at 39 dining. People can join 39’s Cycle and Run Club on Strava – the social network for athletes (search “39 Monte Carlo”) – to keep up to date with organised activities.
For Sunday’s run with Paula Radcliffe, reserve your spot by email email@example.com or 39 members can use the club’s booking application.

A tombola was held with awesome prizes including private golf lessons at Royal Mougins with Stephane Damiano of Prime Golf Academy, a free swing assessment at One Eagle’s fitting centre and a bucket of EcoBioBalls, aka fish balls – non-toxic, biodegradable "eco" golf balls filled with fish food. [caption id="attachment_28239" align="alignnone" width="1280"] Quentin Durafour, One Eagle Fitter, with fish balls.[/caption] “What a cool idea for golfers who practice at sea,” commented MonacoUSA’s Executive Director Annette Anderson. Fish balls begin to dissolve after 24 hours, then fish begin eating the food inside after 36 hours before the balls fully dissipate after 28 days. A great deal of energy went into the Ryder Cup discovery evening, as led by the inextinguishable Annette Anderson, Alicia Sedgwick, Master of Ceremonies of TEDxMonteCarlo who provided commentary for the fashion show, and the staff at Stars’n’Bars for their prompt and friendly service.
