Why do this ride

Mont Ventoux was put there for the sole purpose of climbing it by bike. The anticipating approach, the forest, the mystical moon-like landscape once you’ve passed Chalet Reynard. Ventoux has it all! We come back again and again to climb the bold mountain. Say hi to Tommy if you’re there, Merckx did.
