It got too hot to be out on the bike and very uncomfortable even sat in shade never mind the heat at night.
Did not climb Mont Ventoux as temp diff was 8 to 10 C but the main problem is that I would have to ride an additional 20 miles to and from the climb start.
However I did the first section up to the 1039metre level.
No bother at all should have gone on up to Chalete Reynard but need to get back before it got too hot. It can just about make you collapse.
I now ride ever 4 th day to allow recovery.
Lake of good WiFi causing problems as I lost 3 posts that I was going to send the WiFi just crashed.
The temp. This afternoon a bearable 29C.
Take care all. Allan C. Cheapest diesel 1.869€ per Liter.
