In good weather and a little wind a road bike tour through the Hohe Mark. With 7 people it started only north north east the wind blew pleasantly in the face. By changing regularly we were able to keep the pace high but still comfortable. Two breaks we made one at the source of Issel now hardly leads water and one at the castle Raesfeld.
A stop and a quiet ride through the old town center at the castle is always worthwhile.
Then it went to Marienthal the section was approached very quickly. Then it went quieter again.

The rain caused today that we did not drive on the road bike through the Provence but shoemakers.
The tour was initially a well-to-walk trail which was then always narrower and finally led from a linen chapel on a very steep path with chain deposits in the valley. In the village we had a coffee in a cafe. The church in St. Paul is from the 12th to 13th century was built in several sections and also restored the frescoes are partly very faded but the Scharm does not detract
The mountain of the wind, the Mont Ventoux. Good 22km long climb from Bedoin, it goes smoothly but then with 10% steadily over to health before the route meets the rise of Sault it is shallower 6% only to then but again to increase to a good 7.5% -8%.
Dangers I am with a translation Vorne36 / hinten28.
Unfortunately, my navigation system has failed so that I am here on the data of a friend, who was up shortly after me. But time is not crucial, as self-assessment and will.
In good weather, some photographers wait to see the pictures of those who arrive at the top.
The subsequent descent is long. Brakes always nice in changing times Front times back and always beautiful intermittently, so that the brakes can cool.Full throttle is also not announced because in the curves come to a KFT and trucks / buses.
