If you are into cycling Provence should be on your bucket list! Thanks to the Mont Ventoux, one of the most feared stage of the Tour de France, Provence has become a top destination if you are looking for a one-of-a-kind type of challenge. With an average gradient of 7% and some stages at nearly 11% going up to the top of the Giant of Provence is not for the faint-hearted! Reaching the top and enjoying the exceptionnal 360° view is a reward worth challenging yourself for!
With many hills and mountains, but also some smooth and flat areas, Provence is a wonderful destination that will suit beginners and experienced cyclist!
