“I have done the Mt. Ventoux five times, she has done it four. The first time she followed me up in a car. When we got to the top, she said, ‘Never again. Next time I come with you’.”

Photographer’s notes: I never told anyone I was going to climb Mt Ventoux. It seemed a curse to talk about it in advance. But other people did. And as soon as the subject was raised, I met people who have done the hill. So many people have done the hill.

It has become something akin to marathon running. A lot more people have done it than you think. And there are a lot of people who have done it again and again.

And having done Mt Ventoux once, I can assure everyone, I would to be the person declaring my intent to ride it next time.
