Cycling up some ALPS --- soon

I'm starting to plan a cycling trip to Mount Ventoux and Alpe D'huez at the end of this month (June)

I'm trying to figure out if the weather will be acceptable.

Has anyone been to any of these places recently, or know someone that's been there that can tell me what the weather is like for both climbs:
Alpe D'huez and Mont Ventoux.

I've checked some webcams and can't tell if they are at the base or top.

That's the beauty of the alps and Mont Ventoux; the weather is extremely stable and consistent pretty much year round. If the webcam looked good today, you should expect the same for the end of June. Have fun!

The weather will find itself acceptable.

This is so absurd that I'm not sure if it's real or platinum level trolling. It's really good.

Re: Cycling up some ALPS --- soon

OP, I am curious if you ever actually go on any of these adventures that you are seemingly constantly planning. Given the fact that you are still posting and presumably alive, I suspect not. If yes, please post some trip reports as I can only imagine the sh!tstorms that you inevitably get yourself into. Thanks!
