    No biggie. :smile: No doubt more people will discover it over time. I also wrote it for the benefit of my relatives, siblings and parents (easier than emailing a separate report to them), so they've read it too.

    Of course, perhaps the thread title was a bit banal, and should have been "Victor's stupendous victory over the humongous French peaks". :laugh:

    I just added "Pyrenees and Alps" to the thread title, perhaps that will pique peoples' interest. :okay:

    True, I caught it because it popped up in 'new posts' and had completely missed it previously.
    Fantastic write up @Shut Up Legs thankyou.

    I'm such a hill-climbing tragic. I'm already browsing various cycle-touring web sites, looking for the best deal for next year, to ride the hills I missed this time, and do others too.

    Postscript: I finally got the photos emailed to me from Sport-Photo.fr, 2.5 months after I ordered them (and after lodging a transaction dispute with my bank). I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, and just assume they were disorganised and somehow misplaced my order. :rolleyes:

    Anyway: here's one of them, probably the best of the lot, as it shows me smiling (obviously pleased with myself) and with the Mont Ventoux summit and old weather station in the background.
