One Cyclist Training to Climb Mont Ventoux

A cyclist who goes by the name Monsieur Scrod has set to documenting his training for a September climb of the fabled mountain, Mont Ventoux. Scrod rides out of Frankfurt, Germany. Photos of early spring roads taken on a ride in the quiet German countryside and posted on his website ventouxcalls are poetic. His prose, on the other hand, is spare and matter-of-fact. This is a good thing. I imagine it like his pedaling style - lean, straight ahead, unapologetic.

  1. Salut Lescaret! Monsieur Scrod hails your venerable cojones and begs Notre Dame, today of all days (Saturday before Easter, 2013) to intervene on our behalf and bring the sun out, the temps up and allow us to put the winter riding gear away! You cobble-stoner, that's your great great great great aunt, I'm almost certain, in there in the "Fight between Canrnival and Lent"? The fishmonger lady with her baskets of giant fish! Allez! Allez! Allez!

    Monday night I sleep in Paris! Hotel Grand Ecole on the left bank!
