Our event-based cycling trips are listed here >>
Organised by Sport Communication, the same people who organise La Marmotte, this is a sportive which gives you the chance to tackle the “Giant of Provence” as part of a 170km ride with 4000m of climbing. Mont Ventoux needs no introduction, being one of the climbs on most people’s bucket list, and scene of many a Tour de France showdown. What a lot of people are not aware of, however, is just how good the cycling is elsewhere in the region, for example the Gorges de la Nesque is a stunning stretch of balcony road.
There is a shorter 100km Mediofondo option, which still includes an ascent of the Mont Ventoux.
We combine the race with one or more days of cycling close to Ventoux, plus some added days on the Côte d’Azur if you wish.
