PEZ Bookshelf: Ventoux

Book Review: Mont Ventoux stands alone and apart from the Alps. Topping out at 1,909 m above sea level, it has acquired considerable fame through the Tour de France. It is a magnet for cyclists, including a group of Dutch friends who are the protagonists of the novel “Ventoux,” a fictional account of how one ride changes lives forever.
