So I have been given the go ahead by my other half to go and ride Mt Ventoux on my Brompton in June. With an opportunity like that, it would be rude not to take full advantage and ride all three routes to the top in one day, (from Bedoin, Malaucene and Sault) and thereby become a member of the Club des Cingles du Mont Ventoux. So that is the plan.
I have to say that Mt Ventoux is one of my favourite climbs and I have completed it a number of times on a regular road bike. I wrote about my last exploits on the mountain a while ago. Riding up and down it on a Brompton bicycle will certainly add to the challenge.
Wish me luck, and I’ll keep you posted on my progress.Follow @fitandfortyman
