Calm before the storm.
Yesterday after I arrived in Amsterdam Tony (Trek Travel guide on loan to us) and I drove to stay the Night in Kortrijk Belgium.
We are lucky to get to stay at some really cool/nice places/cities/hotels. The first official hotel is here in Crilion Le Brave very close to the foot of Mt. Ventoux. This climb is not part of the race but will still be fun to tackle.
This place is amazing. It is basically a very small town of maybe 300 on a small hill side near the base of Mt. Ventoux. We were staying at the Hotel for the first day but today and tomorrow we will be at this amazing house. It has 5 bedrooms each of which had it’s own bath. Full living area, kitchen etc. Beautiful to say the least.
