If you know what the Mont Ventoux represents to a bicyclist, you might be interested to know that the challenge also exists for... unicyclists! Last Sunday, a group of unicyclists of all ages descended the Montagne de Lure (exactly 86 meters less high than its neighbor the Ventoux) on a 15 km (9 mile) course down to the village of St Etienne les Orgues. This ride is organized each year - along with a bunch of other fun activities - by the local association "Roue Libre" and its hard-working President Yvon. This year was the tenth anniversary of this weekend long event they call "Y'a du Jeu dans ta Roue", hence the champagne and silly outfits! Check out the organization's website to find out more about unicycling for all ages... http://goo.gl/lQ7YYV My 8 year old son can assure you that it is fun to try!
