  • Not even for a cyclist who did the rise in car, the Ventoux is a monument of Provence. Too bad that the fog at the top has deprived us of the view of the surrounding area

  • This is a must-do experience for any cyclist! Bicycle rentals are available in nearby villages. Pros can ride up Mont Ventoux in about an hour. With many stops for people I was cycling with as well as...  more »
  • starting from Bédoin or Malaucène view splendid 360 at the top. Beware, it can get cold! Luckily, 1 November was sunny, clear and windless

  • What can I say. It's steep...and you can get great views at the summit.... recommend the coffee in the restaurant. Not a bad price considering its a captive audience!!
  • We went up by car and spend a couple of minutes on top. A bit boring as the view is not really impressive and there is not much to explore. Would recommend to hike up or use a bike!
  • Spectacular cycle climb. I rode up early morning and the noise the bare rocks near the summit make as they warm is so spooky. Naturally the view from the top is amazing - on a clear day one can see to the Alpes.
  • Magnific view. One of the best place in France for biking.
  • Great mountain, especially if you like cycling. Don't attempt to peddle to the top without proper preparations, because then you're gonna have a bad time.
