3 nights

Level of difficulty:
Anyone can do it, right?

€395 based on twin/double share. There is a €100 single supplement – if you are happy to share a twin room, we can match you up with another solo rider (of the same gender) so you can avoid the supplement.

Calling club riders, cycling groups, couples, singles, men, women, young, old, semi pros and weekend potterers – you're all welcome. 
Apparently 'anyone' can climb Ventoux with a bit of training. I'm putting this theory to the test May 24-27. And you're all invited, safe in the knowledge that there's no conceivable way you'll be slower than me. We've organised this group rides weekend in partnership with Gerry and John at 44-5 Cyclng Tours, local Ventoux specialists. It's a fully supported weekend: three nights' accommodation with breakfasts, a warmup ride on the Friday to size up the Giant on the horizon, and then a Ventoux climb from Bedoin on the Saturday. There's also a welcome meal on the Thursday. Single rooms, airport/station transfers and bike hire all available for a surcharge. Just bring your climbing legs**.
