Is This Trip For Me?

Join us in beautiful Bedoin in the heart of Provence's stunning cycling country. Ventoux is the headline but the glorious riding in the quiet country lanes around it is equally memorable. This 4 night trip is ridden at a more relaxed pace where the quality of the company and croissants are more important than KOM hunting.

Tour Highlights

  • Ride the Gorges de la Nesque: Ride two is one of the world's best one day rides - a journey round the base of Ventoux over rolling terrain culminating in the beautiful Gorges de la Nesque.

Ventoux & Provence Cycling Holiday

Cycling in Provence In late Spring and early Autumn Provence boasts ideal cycling temperatures, with miles of quiet, tarmacked roads and some breathtakingly beautiful rolling terrain. Most travellers head here for one reason, the mighty Mont Ventoux, but also leave with incredible memories of the tranquil, local lanes and smaller climbs. Our 5-day, 4-night trip is ridden at a relaxed pace, aiming for 100km per day with around 5 hours of riding. Once done you will have plenty of time to enjoy your evenings in this charming area, either take on the French game of boules, explore the local markets or load-up on those essential carbs at one of Bedoin’s famous patisseries. Our Package The Ventoux & Provence cycling package includes daily guided rides including: 1. Thursday's ride goes to the stunning Luberon Valley 2. Friday's ride to the amazing Gorges de la Nesque 3. Saturday it’s time for Mont Ventoux, with a short warm up ride before the ascent, followed by a descent for lunch in Sault, finishing with a roll home. Sportive Breaks also offer the option to climb all three sides of Mont Ventoux in a day. Once conquered you will join the most exclusive club in cycling, the Club des Cingles du Mont Ventoux.
