of the mont Ventoux. The roads wind through a very
varied landscape, rough and invincible mountains and
sweet fields of lavender a big contrast.


The roads wind through a very varied landscape, rough
and invincible mountains and sweet fields of lavendera big contrast. Just before the ancient citadel of Sisteron we are going to climb the Col de la Graille (1597m), a mountain loaded with delightfully fragrant oak-wood and unbelievable many curves.


The roads are excellent and very well-organized, we can speed up on some roads because they are broad and there is almost no traffic, you can enjoy everything around you, beautiful little villages with old marketplaces where time stood still.


At the foot of the Mont Ventoux (776 m) we will have a lunch and after that we begin with the climb of the mont
Ventoux (1909 m), You will need some additional clothing because there is always a cold wind on top the mountain.
This mountain is not onlyunique and just doesn’t fit in the total of the landscape.



It is like a moon landscape and it will climb from 3-9 %, it is amazing that professional cyclists climb this mountain in an enormous tempo, some of them didn’t make it. For that reason we will hold still at the monument of Tommy Simpson who died in 1967 on this slope from exhaustion. When the weather is clear we can see the summit of the Mont Blanc, hundred of kilometres far away. After a short break we descend the same way we came in the direction Sault and Forcalquier. We cross the valley of the Hautes Provence and return to our house where we are going to have a fantastic evening together with all the stories to tell.
