Gap to Carpentras

Thursday we left Gap for another ride to cover more than 100 miles. After a few miles along a highway we went westward on route 942, which brought us another day of beautiful landscape. The ride would eventually take us to the famed Mont Ventoux, by many considered as one of the toughest mountain tops to ride to. The first sighting of the mountain gave us some shivers as it sticks out way above any other mountain in that area. Luckily with the approach that we had and the direction coming in, the climb was easier than expected. We will be back at it onSaturday from a different direction that will make it much harder.

    I don’t know how you all are doing this day after day. Whenever I have done a mountain century with a lot of climbing I was pretty much laid up for the next day or two. Keep up the good work and have fun. The pics are great.
