More than just a single route on one of the legendary mountains of the Tour de France, our Mont-Ventoux bike tours can offer three different ascents that challenge the most accomplished climbers and leave masterful sprinters panting and sobbing at the roadside!
Discover Postcard Pretty Provence
For those wishing to enjoy beautiful countryside along with their suffering, the surrounding area of Provence also offers easier riding opportunities as well as visits to some of the most beautiful stone villages in France.
In between the exciting climbs and visits to scenic villages, cyclists will stay in comfortable charming hotels and experience delicious Provencal cuisine on their backroads bike tour of France’s most beloved region.
Take the Mount Ventoux Bike Tour Challenge
The degree of Mont Ventoux's challenge depends on both your cycling experience and pain tolerance: you can choose the classic route starting in Bedoin and call it a day, or you can choose to continue climbing it from its second and even third side all on the same day.
While the saner among you can climb the other sides on other days following our itinerary to ride on small scenic mountain roads and through many of France's most beautiful villages to discover the Provence that has inspired numerous artists including Van Gogh and Cézanne.
Beyond the Borders of Backroads Provence
You could sample the best routes on our 5-day Mount Ventoux bike tours, or extend your cycling to other dramatic and distinct regions of Provence with an 8-day tour.
Provence located between the Southern Alps and the wild hilly region of Ardeche can also easily be combined with these two destinations to make an even more diverse cycling France experience.
