Day 11 - Sisteron to Mt. Ventoux
July 23 - We completed the trip over to our final destination, Mont Ventoux, the Giant of Provence. We saw the sunflowers and lavender fields the area is known for, and could see Mont Ventoux from about 20 miles away. Our route took us through Sault, on one of the ridges of the mountain, and then followed the Tour de France route from there to our camp in Villes sur Auzon, south of the mountain.
The pro Tour will arrive on Saturday, July 25th, so the area is already buzzing with bicyclists from all over, and the roads up the mountain are lined with campers and tents.
