For those who were wondering, on the post-Mont Ventoux 35-mile recovery ride the next day we started out creaky and slow, but finished up feeling much better!
We’ve moved to our second villa in France and we’ll take this opportunity to give you an idea about where we are. After arriving in Marseille we rented a car and drove to Sablet.
We spent a week in an adorable cottage with a pool and a short walk to town.
More importantly, we were situated on a country road which placed us on a network of winery roads with almost no traffic.
The riding and the scenery were spectacular.
And one of our neighbors had a purple gate.
This is probably where we should have been staying!
We have now relocated about an hour south to a larger villa in the village of Robion.
It’s near a bike trail that comes with its own challenges.
It’s closer to more well-known (tourist attraction) towns like Lacoste, Bonnieux, and Les Baux.
There are more patisseries here and more of what I love about Provence in summer – Lavender!
It’s not all about the grapes and lavender here… camels!?
The weather is sunny, and it’s finally hot enough to use our pool.
We’ll check in with you later in the week.
