BEYOND MONT VENTOUX

THE EXPERIENCE

Join us in 2022 to complete arguably the hardest of all the Tour de France climbs at 1909 m, Mont Ventoux is a true beast of a climb, and should be on any cyclists to do list, The legendary ascent of Mont Ventoux, setting off from Bedoin, a distance of 21 km with a 1,610 m elevation gain. You will encounter an average gradient of 7.5% with a maximum gradient of 12%.

 

Along with the Mont Ventoux climb , we will cycle from our base around the other areas of Provence to include Les Gorges de Trente – Pas and Gorge de la Nesque, these are stunning rides around the countryside of Provence.

 

This ride is most definitely not about speed this experience is about cycling with friends (or new ones) and enjoying where we are.

Each day we will achieve a new cycling challenge, mostly about enjoying the day in the saddle or heading to the tops of the numerous col’s (Mountains) we find on route, with amazing views in the Mountains and Descents that range from 8 – 25 km, it is an experience you will not get every day.

From our hotel we will cycle a different route each day, always with the goal of riding, drinking good coffee, eating cake and being in wonder of our stunning surroundings.

Each evening we will enjoy some sunning French cuisine with the odd glass (Bottle) of Grenache and Syrah all done in the setting sun and memories to last a lifetime.

An Unforgettable experience.
