In Cycle Tour, France, Short Rides, Tablet IOS/Android by PhilLeave a Comment


The second ride of a 3 part Grand Tour of the Giant of the Provence that takes you up two sides of the climb on a early spring day with the trees in full blossom.

This part which is much easier then the two rides either side of it starts with the remaining descent of the Ventoux towards Bedoin. But we turn off this road to take a more rustic route past the fields of cherry blossom to the Gorges du Nesque via Villes-sur-Auzon. This is a very easy climb with very shallow grades that features some tunnels & arches into the cliff side road. The ride ends with a short hill upto the scenic village of Sault.

You can continue the Grand Tour with T2055.61 Part 3 with the longer less steep Sault side of the Ventoux
