“Well worth a visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

An amazing mountain. To drive up in a car is spectacular. To see many people cycling up is truly a spectacular sight to see.

“Made it to the top on bike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

Disliked the sweat and pain. Liked the sense of achievement and the view from the top. Otherwise there is very little to do at the top of Ventoux. Probably not worth the drive up unless you are really into views.

“Climbed Mont Ventoux!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

This is an iconic climb of the Tour de France. It is like the moon up there, very surreal. A great challenge for the average cyclist! I climbed it from the Sault side which was more gradual; it took longer, but it was an easier grade.

“Mont Ventoux”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

We recently attended my daughter's wedding near Mont Ventoux. Perfect setting, highly recommended. For wonderful places with spectacular views try Buis-les-Baronnies, Plaisians, and Nyons, also gites high in the hills around.

“Good views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Mont Ventoux must be visable from everywhere in the region! Good views from the top and you can watch the mad cyclist making their way to the summit!
