Training for Ventoux, we take you to ride above the gorgeous and breathtaking Gorges De La Nesque before tackling “Le géant de Provence”. We’ll lead you through the region’s famous vineyards that produce exquisite wines from the Rhône and ride you around the local gorges, cols and lavender fields. There is more to ride here than you may think and it’s simply stunning! Mont Ventoux is famous for many sportives, and was a good year for Chris Froome winning the Tour de France stage there in 2013.  The Tour will be visiting again this year, Perhaps another victory for Chris in 2016?, and evidence of the Tour lingers in writings on the road that is evident when you are climbing there. Do you really need more excuses to come and ride Ventoux?
