This will be my first venture to the high ground and I invite comment from the experienced. These are the key elements in my thinking so far.
- May because that is the earliest time that offers a reasonable probability of acceptable weather conditions at the top
- train not car because the distance is disagreeably long from Fulham for a short holiday
- hire bike not take own given the hassles and Eurostar's unwillingness to guarantee same train travel
- Malaucene, Bedoin or Sault as a base? All comments on the hotels and bike hire shops will be appreciated
