What an awesome experience to climb Ventoux on Bastille Day with the TDF finishing the stage on the summit. There were probably half a million people on the mountain and it was both exciting and chaotic.. I got to within 500m of the summit when they barred any cyclists riding further, over 4 hours before the tour was due. Waiting time seemed to pass quickly with the sights and sounds and the "caravan" ahead of the riders. The descent at the end was another experience with thousands of cyclists passing lines of cars all the way down. An unforgettable day
Wow Ed, that is an experience to relish and enjoy forever. Well done friend. What an achievement!
What an amazing experience! A important day in cycling history and you were there.
How exciting is that! Bravo Ed.
