Info

Did you ride this climb/route? share your story, information or comments.

Situated as last Alpine mountain ridge before the Rhône plain, the Mont Ventoux can be seen almost from everywhere in Provence. Its isolated position gives it a gigantic and dominating feature. In all directions you'll have no higher peaks in the neighbourhood of the Mont Ventoux. The name Mont Ventoux means "windy mountain", and some bikers will know why. One of the thoughest cols to do in France...

Met stip is de klim via Malaucène volgens mij de mooiste van de 3 beklimmingen. Op geregelde tijdstippen wordt je getrakteerd op prachtige vergezichten. Persoonlijk vind ik deze klim, net zoals vele locals ook moeilijker dan de zuidzijde.
