It’s Sunday and when you live in Provence and your children are very sports minded there are a few activities that will probably be suggested. With my family there are 3 choices; tennis, cycling or climbing.

Cycling won hands down and I was designed to drive the grandchildren to the top of the Mont Ventoux for lunch. I must confess that there is no way that I could possibly ride a bike the 23 km to the restaurant. Hey Grammie, I think I see Mama and Papa.The restaurant was very busy since this was Sunday.Look at the very top where it is white.  No, that’s not snow but rock.  Most serious cyclists ride at least once to the top. Even the Tour de France includes this in their race.
