The Short Break Road Cycling Holiday Specialist

Guides to Cycle Routes and Climbs of Provence

Cycling in Provence is a feast for all the senses; you’ll ride through gorgeous sleepy villages, past olive groves, vineyards and cherry orchards, as well as having the opportunity to tackle the infamous ‘Beast of Provence’, Mount Ventoux. Click the titles or profiles for a full description of routes up this legendary mountain.

Our base in the popular cycling village of Bedoin is ideally located to tackle the revered mountain, as well as giving you access to the ‘gentler’ side of provençal cycling.

We run ‘Classic’ fully supported breaks and more independent ‘Lite’ cycling weekends in Provence; on either of these we are there to support your trip and provide advice and guidance on which routes to tackle, and how best to incorporate the climbs for a great day out on the bike. We have an extensive set of full route guides and GPS tracks available for all guests to use over the course of their stays.

If you have any questions about any of these climbs, routes incorporating them or anything else related to a short break cycling the roads of Provence, don’t hesitate to contact us for more details.
