Challenge Yourself on Le Géant de Provence
There are many ways for amateur cyclists to experience the glory of Mont Ventoux, but only one way for them to experience it like a pro: Haute Route Ventoux 2019. Part of a growing series of 3-day sportives, Haute Route Ventoux delivers all of the same high quality organization and service as the traditional 7-day events, but in a compact three-day racing format based in one location. Each stage will include one of the three different climbs to the summit.
44|5 Cycling Tours’ 2019 Haute Route Ventoux package will help ensure you make the most of your racing experience over the 268 km of riding and 7980 meters of climbing. The mountain and surrounding area have been our riding playground for over 10 years, so we can share our expert knowledge of roads, weather and race strategies with you. We’ve ridden all three roads to the summit a countless number of times and know every bit of road you will be racing on in October.
Lodged in our provençal chambres d’hôtes, just minutes down the road from the start village of Bédoin, you’ll have all the necessary conveniences on hand. Comfortable rooms, relaxing indoor and outdoor spaces, and cyclist-friendly meals mean all you have to do is focus on the riding.
Our 4-night package allows you a little extra time to acclimate before the race, and then celebrate your achievements with the group after the last stage on Sunday night. Given the generally excellent weather in Provence in early October, some riders may even consider bringing non-riding spouses or friends, as our farmhouse is an excellent base from which to discover the heart of Provence.
