It’s a beautiful spring day, 20 degrees, and I have just completed my fourth ride of the year. Back in training to conquer Mont Ventoux again.

 Covering just under 40 kilometres the ride takes you out the village passing the windmill and over the  first 10kilometres you climb from 375 metres to 998 metres at the Col de Liguiere. 

Then it’s the fast descent passing Sarroud towards Jean Jean with great views of Mont Ventoux as you speed down! 

From here you had to Javon and follow the road back descending into the Gorge pictured below and continue on the road you can see back to Saint Saturnin Les Apt. 

During the entire ride I saw not one person or other cyclist! And just half a dozen cars. Perfect!
