    Is a goal a good thing or a mad thing?

    info@clubcinglesventoux.org

    You know...

    I went up to the top of this once as a teenager, but only from Sault, not the very bottom

    So, 3 times - surely all it takes is a failure of imagination and a dogged daftness

    Anyhow, I've booked next summer's break. Spouse, sadly, has declined the tandem

    That link is not working for me...

    Training for an epic event is a good goal, as long as the rest of your life holds together well.

    The link you refer to is probably climbing Ventoux up the 3 different routes in one day. Did the trip from Malaucen in one day and was my first ever Mountain climb. Went back a couple of years later and the intention was to do the 3 climbs but did the Malaucen to the summit- dropped down into Sault and thanks to the weather-Rain and wind- I stopped. Mountains are not the best place to be on with horizontal rain.

    The other Town to start from is Bedoin and a link to Ventoux is

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mont_Ventoux

    Scroll down to Road cyling and you can get an idea of what Wobbly is refering to.

    And a link to one of our members climbing it is

    Guess my goal (see sig) fits mad category. But I am having fun trying and if I do make it, I will have bragging rights for the rest of my life, and that's worth a lot.
