What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Making it to the top of Mount Ventoux! The satisfaction of passing professional cyclists going up the mountain was amazing! The long slog is definitely worth it and there is a cold beer and good food waiting at the top

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Buy good cycling shorts! Remember that a lot of shops and restaurants in France close from 12pm to 4pm roughly. Yes some of the restaurants close at lunchtime!! Make sure you have plenty of provisions to keep you going
