My story

[p]Over three days this September will see a team from John Lewis Partnership Property & Development Team together with suppliers rise to a significant cycling challenge. [/p][p]Mont Ventoux is a mountain in the Provence region of Southern France and has become legendary as the scene of one of the most gruelling climbs in the [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tour_de_France]Tour de France[/url] bicycle race, which has ascended the mountain fifteen times since 1951. The followed trail mostly passes through Bédoin. Its fame as a scene of great Tour dramas has made it a magnet for cyclists around the world. At 6,263ft it is the highest mountain in the region and has been nicknamed the "Beast of Provence”. [/p][p]It’s a challenge that the team will conquer tackling three routes - depending on the weather conditions: [/p][p]Minimum route: 55km with 1700m of ascent – over 1 ascent.[/p][p]Classic route 106km with 2800m ascent – over 2 ascents.[/p][p]Challenge route: 136km with 4443m ascent – over 3 ascents.[/p][p]The JLP P&D & suppliers team are hoping to raise between £20,000 to £30,000 from this event for homeless young people. But they need your support to achieve that. [/p]
