Photographer's Note

Climbing (with my brother) the Mount Ventoux in the Vaucluse Region, south east part of France. This mountain has become very famous throughout the different bike races that brought their cyclists on its road. We started in Bedoin city (ab. 260 m above see level) and climb the way up to the summit which stands at 1912 m. above see level. The climb is 21 kilometers long at an average slope rate of 7.5% but with many portion at 10-11%. Took us about 1h30 minutes but we are quite trained people! be careful if you are not fit! you will suffer like in hell! However, it is so worth reaching the summit! the view is just breathtaking! Cheers (credit to my father who did take the picture since I was on my bike.. I am the one on the right side of the picture)
