No cycling tour in Provence is complete without an excursion to Mont Ventoux, and up to its summit!

Mont Ventoux is the highest mountain in Provence at a towering 1912m. It’s probably most famous for its inclusion in the Tour de France bicycle race, and often touted as the most difficult climb you can do on a bike in France. Not only do you need to deal with blistering hot summer temperatures around the base of the mountain, the gradients are severe: relentless for 21km. And once you get above the tree line, you can be whipped around by some of the fiercest winds you’ll encounter anywhere.

The road leading up to the summit opens in mid-April, though cyclists often begin to climb ahead of schedule, passing a barrier and finishing on the snow and ice. In July and August its preferable to begin the climb early in the morning, to avoid the blistering heat, while September and October are often perfect months to cycle to the summit. 

Cycling tours in Provence can be built around Mont Ventoux, either staying around its base, circling around its picturesque Toulourenc Valley to the North, or attempting anyone or all of its three climbs to the summit!
