The Rider VI - Camprieu - Mont Aigoual
Climbing. Hands on the bars, my wrists in front of me. They’re wet. Mont Aigoual is almost the highest mountain in the Cévennes, but height doesn’t mean everything: in Holland there are hills steeper than Mont Ventoux.
Mont Aigoual is tough, but regular. It’s made up of three parts. First, three kilometers to the Col de la Sereyrède, then three kilometers to the ski area at the Col de Pra Peirot, then two more to the summit of Mont Aigoual itself.
From the book THE RIDER by Tim Krabbé (a must read book for every cyclist)
