Join Unique Cycling Tours on this amazing journey.
If you are looking for a challenging tour that gives your group the opportunity to tick off many off the Tour de France’s most famous climbs, then this is the one for you.
For the first 5 nights we are based in the heart of the French Alps, surrounded by world famous climbs that have featured countless times in the Tour de France, as well as sharing our local knowledge to take you off the beaten track to some hidden gems of this beautiful region.
After transitioning to Provence for the remaining 4 nights, we offer you Mont Ventoux in all its glory. 24 kilometres of cycling history etched in the roads that take you to its famous peak. Bedoin, Sault and Malaucène are within easy reach and host the official starts to the climb up the Giant of Provence.
To the south is the stunning Gorge de la Nesque and the village of Sault and to the east is the Plateau d’Albion which rises up to the second highest mountain in the region, the Montagne de Lure at 1800m. Between the Plateau d’Albion and the Baronnies to the north is the 1212m Col de l’Homme Mort – Dead Man’s Pass!
The hills and mountains surrounding Mont Ventoux on all 4 sides are stunning and perfectly situated to offer fantastic loop rides of varying difficulty.
Unique Cycling Tours focus on small group travel to minimise disruption and maximise cycling time. Our choice of accommodation is comfortable and close to the routes that we ride.
