I currently live in Portland Oregon. I am an avid cyclist as are my traveling companions. Several of us race bikes at the masters level.
Tom had wrote to me that he and his group of friends were doing a cycling trip in France. I expected them to have some bicycles with their luggage. What I did not expect was that one day before the Tour de France they actually rode the Mont Ventoux up to the summit! That's awesome! Congratulations! Obviously, no need to say that this group have been great guests.
