Three ascents of legendary Ventoux over a shorter time and based from one location - Bédoin.

5th to 7th October 2018

With three ascents of legendary Mont Ventoux, some beautiful cols in its foothills and the incomparable landscapes of French Provence, the second Haute Route Ventoux promises three days of memorable cycling from October 6th to 8th 2017.

Each stage will start in Bédoin and finish with one of the three ascents of Mont Ventoux. Finishing atop the Géant de Provence, you will be able to collect your bag at the summit prior to descending into the French Provencal town of Bédoin for the services of the Haute Route village.

The Haute Route Ventoux will be built from the same DNA as the full seven-day Haute Route events which are widely regarded as the pinnacle of amateur cycling experiences in Europe. The key difference is that the Haute Route Ventoux will be based in one place for three days, hugely simplifying logistics, meaning you can stay in one hotel, will no longer have to pack your bags before each stage and will be able to bring family and friends along as well.

Mild weather in early October makes the region around the Ventoux a highly attractive destination. Providing a classic playground for cyclists looking for an autumn escape, Bédoin is easily accessible for both French and international cyclists alike, located close to airports in Marseille and Montpellier, as well as the TGV station in Avignon.

The geographical location of Bédoin and its variety of accommodation options - hotels, holiday resorts, gîtes and guest houses - will allow you to reserve the accommodation that best suits your needs.

With its accommodating schedule (late arrivals on the Thursday and early finish on the Sunday) you will be able to travel to the event easily for a long weekend of memorable cycling.
