Ventoux (or van2.0 for those that are suffix besotted)

Fellow SAP-er and Enterprise Irregular Thomas Otter, will ride up Mt. Ventoux. As if this weren't heroic enough, he will be raising money for Warchild. He and his fellow riders even set up a wiki(guys, you shouldv'e used Socialtext!).
Please consider donating.

Here's a bit about the mountain from Wikipedia:

South from Bédoin: 22 km over 1610 m. This is the most famous and difficult ascent. The road to the summit has an average gradient of 7.6%. Until Saint-Estève, the climb is easy, but the 16 remaining kilometres have an average gradient of 10%. The last kilometres have strong, violent winds. The ride takes 2-3 hours for trained amateur individuals, and professionals can ride it in 1-1.5 hours.
