On 1st June I depart Maison Chapoutier with 14 fellow cyclists on the 10th and toughest edition of the Mentzendorff Charity Ride. On Day 1 we head south down the Rhone Valley for 150km to prepare for Day 2's ascent of Mt.Ventoux @1912m one of cyclings iconic climbs. We then follow Le Rhone to the "Med" and turn SW into Languedoc-Roussillon before finishing in the shadow of the Pyrenees at Collioure. We will have covered 450km in 4 tough days.
We are again raising funds for the Benevolent Drinks Trade Charity which lies at the heart of, and supports those in need within, the Drinks trade community www.thebenevolent.org.uk
