The History of Cycling on Mont Ventoux

Sad but true, Tommy Simpon had died on his way up the Geant, luckily I did not although it did feel like it for a while. The last 5Km form the Bedoin side contours up, at least now the cyclist can see the 'end in sight'. You can se the large radio antenna 'sputnik' in style.

The last 5km on the Mont Seiren side snkes up in hairpins,no such hairpins on the Southern 'Bedoin' side. Fantastic riding as you roll up admiring extensive views of the Alps, expanding in scale as you progress up the gradient.
