Day 12 - Mt. Ventoux

July 24 - The pro Tour de France is arriving in the area tomorrow, so the area is buzzing. Cyclists are everywhere, and the camp is crammed full. We are staying in the same camp until the end of the trip, so we all did our own things - rides in the area, resting, washing clothes, etc.

Mont Ventoux is an impressive site, looming above the camp and the town. The climb from here is about 14 miles and I burned 2000 calories to get to the top when we were here in 2006.
