Today’s stage in mostly pictures…. it started out on really good cycling roads through the local vineyards
First sighting of Mont Ventoux, Provence’s Giant! Keep in mind, it’s over 100 k away from here….it’s the one in the way background that looks like a cloud!
More great scenery!
More great roads, perhaps even a little nicer!
Now its getting way good!!!!
Another Ventoux sighting!
Still more roadies!
Okay, now the road is off the charts! Zero cars, tons of cyclist, and butter pavement, ripping decent!!!!
Had to take a break from pictures, got into a big climb with some locals….dropped all but one then made a friend at the top!
Stopped in this town for lunch:
After lunch I thought the great roads and views were done, was just going to roll to the hotel…. I was wrong!
One of the reasons I am making this cross country trip is to find an area where I can return and spend extended amounts of time….. I found one!!! Today was one of my top five ever anywhere road rides!!! Not often I say that!!!! I will return!
