Attack the Giant of Provence
Mont Ventoux‘s reputation needs no introduction in the cycling world.
Are you up for the challenge? There are three possible climbs: Malaucène, Bédoin or Sault, with distances of 21, 22 and 26 km respectively. In total, trained cyclists should expect the climbs to take 90 minutes to 3 ½ hours.
As you pedal towards the giant, you can admire the Mont Ventoux Biosphere Reserve.
Choose the route that best suits you:
- the great coniferous forests and the view of the Baronnies Provençales, starting from Malaucène
- crossing the lavender fields from Sault
- the mythical Tour de France climb from Bédoin
Whatever your route, don’t forget about the heat or the mistral.
Immortalise your arrival at the top by taking a selfie in front of the landmark sign. And if you have any energy left, prolong this fine climb with our great itinerary around Mont Ventoux.
