Tips

  • Jürgen B.

    If you are on the road bike in Provence, you should have ridden the Gorges de la Nesque once. Whether uphill or downhill. It is a dream landscape.

    Wonderful easy to climb so always 3-4%.
    Upstairs there is an observation deck overlooking the Ventoux.

    Great road in great scenery! The narrow D942 winds its way through the Nesque Gorge with slight to moderate incline, which in the back section impresses with rock faces more than 100 meters high. By far the most recommended route to get to Sault.

    Optimal start and finish of this tour is Villes-sur-Auzon. You can easily make the tour as a round trip. In Monieux you can have a little break at the café by the pond. You can drive back on the D5 to Méthamis and from there on the D14 to Villes-sur-Auzon.

    Supr great road bike track. If you want to go from Sault to Bedoin, take the road at the "Gorges de la Nesque". In the other direction, it is obviously great too ....

    This is a wonderfull road with an incredible view. With the roadbike you wil enjoy it the most if you start in Villes-sur-Auzon and ride towards Monieux, the road go’s slightly upwards with a maximum incline of about 3 a 4 %.
    On the top at belvédère you might see some wild boars.
