Mont Ventoux Challenge - Finishers Testimonials
"It was probably the most beautiful, intense and satisfying experience on a bike I have ever had!
Steep, long, windy, spectacular! These are only 4 adjectives that spontaneously come to my mind when I think of Mont Ventoux!
But the most beautiful and satisfying word I can think of is: PRIDE!!! I'm proud of ME!!! Of me, because I have conquered this mountain despite tiredness, despite wind, despite aching legs.
A beautiful, exciting and challenging adventure on the bike. A veritable rollercoaster of emotions, but the overriding one was joy! If you need a goal to aim for, make it this one. Especially women! So far, 13,841 men have completed the ride vs. 971 women! That's got to change.
Mendy Van Beers
The Mont Ventoux! The magic mountain! I have climbed it 16 times in total. Of which 5 x the Cinglé. We do this to raise money for the cancer fund. So for us it is something very special. Usually with my whole family, which makes it very special again.
A beautiful challenge i will remember all my life! it was kind of a perfect day for me. I suggest starting with Malaucène (trees are more sparse and the view is nice with the sunrise), then Bedouin (you can eat at the Chalet Reynard) and finish with Sault (less inclined, easier).

TOO BIG FOR ME?
How often do we feel that we're not enough or that something is too big for us?
Especially with big cycling challenges like this one...
The good news is that we need challenges to push forward. Anything is attainable if we train right, are persistent and surround ourselves with a supportive group that cheers for us!
Starting from your closest loved ones to your riding pals!
This is what this challenge & NGNM group is about!

is for you.
YOU GOTTA LOVE CLIMBING!
Your training can support you all the way, your mindset can shift to become an NGNM queen, but the bottom line is that you must love climbing and spending many hours going uphill!
This is going to be a long hard effort, make sure you are suit for something like this, and prepare with perseverance and specific training that includes long distances & hours in the saddle; hill repeats; intervals for low / high rpm's; high power intervals; work on your FTP.
You do the work and we'll take care of the rest for you!
