Road Cycling Highlight
The Mont Ventoux is of course an absolute "MUST" for every racing cyclist. And apart from the Tour de France hype around this mountain, it's just beautiful - great stretch of bedoin first through the sparse oak forest, then through the barren lime landscape with a view of the provence you must have experienced. And if you're not riding uphill at a race pace, the gradient is also much less dramatic than people like to tell.

A trip to the top of Mont Ventoux is a must when in Provence. An ascent of almost 1,600 vertical feet can be conquered on this outpost of the Alps, and it is especially the last part of the ascent that leaves one speechless. This rubble desert is just breathtaking.

I think you do not have to write much about Mont Ventoux. Who is on the summit before 9 o'clock can still enjoy some loneliness. Then it gets full. The weather can change quite fast. Therefore be prepared for everything. If you start the mountain from all three sides in one day, you qualify for the "Club des Cingles du Mont-Ventoux." Before you can order a corresponding stamp card from the club.

If you start it up - no matter from which side - you should arrive here, otherwise the whole effort would be rather fruitless. Have the wind vest or jacket on and take a photo in front of the sign by a trustworthy racing cyclist who is also standing up in the cold.
