These gorges just down the road from Sault and Mt Ventoux are stunning. The wild flowers at this time of year in The verges are like a rock garden and the views across the gorge superb. Tunnels hewn out of rock, fantastic echos and even...More
We made the cycle ascent of Mont Ventoux from Bedoin then for a change of scenery we decided to come down via Sault and then the Gorges Nesque back to Bedoin.
Must have run for 12 miles down hill what a ride.
Must admit I...More
We drove the route up alongside the Gorges and stopped a number of times to appreciate the scenery. In late May the hillsides were green and full of wildflowers, and the air full of the scent of wild thyme. The promise of lavender in the...More
The road is narrow, with almost no shoulder, but it is wide enough for two cars to pass easily. Some, however, pass faster than others. We were there in September, so there were still a lot of bicyclists vying for road space.
The views are...More
Rode through this gorge as part of a cycle sportive. Wow. What an amazing place. Don't go in a car, it's a waste of time. Ride through it. A hot sunny Sunday, no traffic, no noise. Just me and 15 miles of downhill roads. Perfection.
The vistas of the Gorges de la Nesque are stunning - deep ravines, dramatic cliffs and lush greenery. Be warned that although the D942 is a road loved by cyclists, it is a white knuckle, 22km drive in the car. The road is very narrow...More
With a grade of no more than 5% and very little of that, this ride is a cake walk and always fun. We ascended the D5, which by itself was pretty cool, had lunch at a gourmet stop in Monieux, and descended the Gorge. Had...More

Well we were staying at Bedoin prior to cycling Ventoux but didn't want to come back the same way. At Chalet Reynard 6 K from the top, the three routes up Ventoux meet, so we took the Sault route down for maybe 15k , then a colleague who had the GPS took us about 4 K right with a little uphill not much, to the downward start of the Gorge, a superb ride for about 20 K all downhill, safe also. That left us an easier route back to Bedoin, through the Lavender and wine growing fields. The Gorge must be 200 metres deep at least but going down you are not on the edge of it.
Was a great experience.
