October is a great time to cycle this legendary volcano – not too hot, although pretty chilly at the top.

The road wasn’t crowded but there were still plenty of cyclists – mainly foreigners that were here for one reason – to climb Ventoux.

Col du Galibier via Col du Telegraphe is the biggest climb in France in terms of altitude gain. I can get to the base of Telegraphe from home in an hour forty-five – as it starts right next to an autoroute – sweet.
