The Road to Ventoux – Blog 9, 31/7/2020

Well, I have done it!  I have managed to cycle up Mont Ventoux.  The only slight problems are that a) I have only done it virtually and b) I only climbed it once and I was knackered!  So, a long way to go to be able to achieve membership of le Club des Cingles du Mont-Ventoux (loosely translated as “madmen of Ventoux”) when you have to cycle up the mountain three times in one day – but that is what the Ventoux3 for Out of the Blues challenge is all about!

To see more about my virtual climb of Mont Ventoux, go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrKhjO6r2hA&feature=youtu.be

My next step/obstacle along the way towards Ventoux3 is whether or not I can get to France in the next couple of weeks, and if I can, whether I can repeat my virtual feat in real life!
