This will be done as a five day trip with three days riding.

Combine two of the most iconic climbs in cycling history in three days of stunning riding.

Starting in the high Alps on the rugged slopes of the Romanche Valley, follow in the pedal strokes of the Tour’s greatest legends and conquer “The Alp” with its 21 infamous switchbacks. From here we make our way southwards over the col d’Ornon and into lesser known but equally breathtaking cycling terrain of the Parc National Regional du Varcors on our way to the lavender fields of Provence. We might not be in the Alps anymore but don’t be fooled, this is challenging and exhilarating cycling which will lead us to our final epic challenge,Mont Ventoux. Known as “The Giant of Provence” -It has to be said, this is a fair description!- Ventoux is a real monster of a climb.

We will tackle this beast from Bedoin, the classic route most commonly used by the Tour de France. Winding its way up through the forested lower slopes and onwards and skywards till we reach the lunar landscape of the summit.

After a quick coffee stop at the famous Chalet Regnard we’ll partake in what is in our view one of the best cycling descents available, the road to Sault followed by a well deserved lunch. To finish our tour, no ride in this area would be complete without taking in the grandeur of the Gorge de la Nesque. After a short mellow climb we can sit back and relax knowing all the hard work is done,  enjoy the final descent along the awe inspiring cliff hugging road that hangs to the side of the stunning Gorge de la Nesque all the way to our final hotel and a very well earned meal.
